      2 slices bacon, chopped
      1 small sweet onion, thinly sliced
      2 6-8 oz bone-in-center-cut rib pork chops

      Cook bacon in large nonstick skillet over medium heat 5 minutes or until crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove bacon, drain on paper towels. Pour off all but 1 tbs of the drippings from skillet. add onion. Cook 5 minutes or until beginning to brown, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle pork with Cajun seasoning. Push onion to sides of skillet. Add pork. Cook 8 to 10 minutes or until pork is pale pink in center, turning once. Serve onions over pork. Sprinkle with bacon. 2 servings = about 270 calories.

      I`m :mrgreen:with envy. 🙂 Your store has a bargin bin, but mine dosen`t. :-(:089:

      When we got our weekly paper today, I noticed the local grocery store has sirloin pork chops on sale this week for $1.99 per pound; so I`ll be buying a couple packs and divide them up to put in the freezer.:grin:

      wow! I can’t believe that your store doesn’t have a mark-down bin. all of the stores around me mark down the meats that haven’t sold by their expiration date. I scoop ’em up and run home to the freezer and thaw at my leisure.

      Sometimes when they do markdown a meat it is in the same area but you have to watch it is a sticker added for an additional markdown. It takes watching to see where they put them and when they mark them down. Wal Mart is good about marking theirs down.

      Thanks Wilbe95 for the info. 🙂 There is a Walmart in another town that is about 25 miles from us. But, because of high gas prices, we don`t go very often. However, when we go again, I will check the meat out. Do you know if they have a bargin bin and where it would be located:?:
