Pork with Sweet Balsamic Onion Sauce

I really wanted to make something all on my own, no changing found recipes or getting inspiration from other recipes - the only inspiration came from my brain.
This was the result. Delicious, savory, sweet. See how you like it.

Pork with Sweet Balsamic Onion Sauce
1 thick pork loin chop, filted and pounded until 1/4 inch thick
1 red onion, sliced
1/4 c balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp flour
about 2 c milk
1/4 c chopped parsley

Brown pork chops in skillet over medium heat. Remove from pan (its okay if they aren't cooked all the way). Add red onions and balsamic vinegar, scrape bottom of the pan with wooden spoon to get all that goodness in the sauce. Add honey and cook until onions are soft. Add flour and cook 1 -2 minutes, or until flour is absorbed is paste-like. (Make sure there are no large clumps of flour, this will make your sauce lumpy and will have an uncooked, flour taste.) Add milk slowly, stirring constantly until desired consistency. (Do a little more than you think because the flour will make it thicken slightly as it cooks.) Return pork chops to pan and cook until heated through. Add parsley, reserving some for garnish. Serve over buttered noodles (if you so desire, I highly recommend) and top with reserved parsley.

Try this sauce with chicken or beef! (And let me know what you think)

Smart move with the honey. I would have first thought to use sugar, but honey would incorporate much better.

Good work on putting together a recipe on your own. I am all for that these days. But even though I am big on that right now, I am still bookmarking this. It would be a good go-to.
