8 cups finely chopped onions (about 2 pounds)

Remove from pan and keep warm. Add chops to skillet and cook until done, approximately 10 to 12 minutes depending on thickness. Remove chops to heated platter and tent with foil to keep warm. Add vinegar and wine to pan bringing to boil while scrapping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Reduce liquid by half, then stir in onions and season with salt and pepper to taste adding the thyme last. Cook while stirring for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove thyme sprig if using fresh thyme, then pour the onion mixture over the pork chops and serve.
