  1. In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Pour half the marinade in a large resealable plastic bag. Add pork chops; seal bag and refrigerate for 2 hours, turning once. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  2. Discard marinade from pork. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook pork chops in oil for 3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Add reserved marinade; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Remove chops from skillet; set aside and keep warm.
  3. Combine cornstarch and cold water until smooth; gradually add to skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and clear.
  4. Meanwhile, toss onions in oil in a large skillet. Cover and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover; cook and stir for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Stir in the ginger ale, salt and cayenne; cook 5 minutes longer. Top each chop with caramelized onions and serve with sauce. Yield: 4 servings.
