Baked Pork Chops

2 boneless center cut pork chops
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup grape juice
1 red onion, sliced
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
3-4 sliced mushrooms
1/2  cup raisins
1/2 small bay leaf
2 tablespoons *Dijon Mustard
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon Rosemary
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350F
Preheat a large heavy skillet, and add  the oil.   Brown onions, garlic. rosemary , raisins and mushrooms  in skillet, and remove to a dish. Brown pork chops five minutes on each side. Transfer  the chops to a rectangular baking dish or use same skillet if oven proof.  ( When baking in the same skillet be careful about using a pot holder to grab the handle when removing from the oven.) Put the cooked onion mixture on top.

Combine honey, seasonings and  mustard and spread  over chops. Pour on grape juice. Add raisins.  Bake uncovered for 45 minutes, basting occasionally. Cool slightly and slice into  thin strips. Simmer pan juices until they reduce and thicken to desired consistency. Transfer slices to a serving dish and pour over pan juices.
