Blackened Pork Chops & Charred Cajun Onions
To make seasoning, mix paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, cumin, oregano, thyme, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Reserve 1 tbsp (15 mL) of seasoning for onions. Season pork chops with remaining mixture.
Grill chops on barbecue preheated to medium-high heat, 6 to 8 min. per side, until 160°F (71°C) on meat thermometer is reached at thickest part of chop, or until meat is cooked and juices run clear.
Meanwhile, brush onion rings with 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil. Season with 2 tsp (10 mL) Cajun seasoning. Barbecue on grill preheated to medium-high, 3 to 5 min. per side, or until onions are charred and tender. Transfer onions to small bowl and toss with apple cider vinegar, sugar, remaining oil and remaining Cajun seasoning. Serve with pork chops.
