Been making this for years. Love it. I rub the pork with salt and pepper and let sit for a bit. Great company dinner, yet easy enough for every day.

I have been making this receipe ever since I saw it published in a Taste of Home magazine many years ago. It is easy, tried and true! Pork always comes out tender and the onions add that something special yet so simple.

Very tasty! Make sure the onions stay on the pork while baking or else they get burnt.
