Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Season the pork with 1/2 teaspoons salt and a few grinds of pepper; cook until browned, 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Add the red onions to the skillet and season with salt. Cook, stirring until lightly browned, 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium; stir in the flour and cook, stirring 2 minutes. Add the chicken broth and bay leaf. Cook, stirring, until thickened, about 3 minutes. Add the vinegar, then return pork to the skillet to heat through.
  3. Meanwhile, bring 2 1/4 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the grits and 1/2 teaspoons salt. Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring, until thickened, 5 minutes. Stir in the cheese.
  4. Remove the pork from the skillet; discard the bay leaf and stir the parsley in the pan sauce. Serve the pork with the grits. Top with the pan sauce and garnish with more parsley.
