Pork Chops with Honey-Balsamic Glaze Recipe

My husband loves pork chops, so I try to find new ways to use them. He calls this version "restaurant quality!" —Nicole Clayton, Prescott, Arizona
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 bone-in pork loin chops (1 inch thick and 10 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed

Directions

  • 1. Sprinkle pork chops with pepper flakes, salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add pork; cook for 5-7 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°). Remove and keep warm.
  • 2. In the same skillet, whisk the vinegar, honey, green onions, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 6-8 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat; whisk in butter until melted. Serve with pork chops. Yield: 4 servings.

"I googled balsamic vinegar and porkchops and found this recipe. I knew the vinegar helped tenderize the meat. I wasn't disappointed! I loved this! The only way I'd tweak it is adding the salt that it calls for in the sauce because I withheld it and ended up thinking it needs it, and maybe adding more red pepper flakes and black pepper to the meat or even in the sauce. I used dried onion flakes because I didn't have any green onions and had no problem with that. Really, really good. I used center cut chops, an inch thick (?), and fried them about 5-6 min per side and they were done nicely. Didn't check temp, just went by color."

"OMG! I was looking for a recipe to go with some homemade balsamic glazed beets and thought balsamic glazed pork chops would go great with them. I looked at several recipes and decided on this one. The beets came out fantastic...my husband loved them but what I thought was really funny was he looked at me and said these pork chops are restaurant quality. I just laughed because of your husband saying the same thing. He said that if he knew what these tasted like and they were on the menu he would order them. Great recipe and thanks for sharing!"

"This was delicious!! I used thick, boneless, center cut chops instead so I had to increase the cooking time by about 5-7 minutes but the wait was so worth it. This is a great dish if you want to impress dinner guests or have a date night dinner. I loved it!"

"I expected this to be a lot better after reading the reviews, but I think it's because I didn't use the type of chops the recipe calls for. The sauce was good, but my pork wasn't. But, I am going to try it again!"

"I loved this recipe! It is just so perfect. Sometimes balsamic vinegar can be overwhelming in a dish, especially in this quantity, but somehow, all the flavours harmonize! Crushing the dried rosemary is essential, though. I ended up picking the hard rosemary leaves out as I ate. Fresh rosemary would be optimal for sure. I substituted low fat margarine for the butter and I omitted the salt (I always do). I added the crushed red pepper flakes to the sauce instead of using them to season the chops. All my tweaks were minor, as it is an amazing recipe as it is."
