"These were the best pork chops I've ever had. My husband grilled them instead of the pan saut?. We found it took a bit more heat and a bit more time to get the sauce to thicken, but it was well worth the effort. These are totally guest-worthy but easy enough for every day. We like pork slightly pink but even though we cooked them a bit past that, they were still deliciously moist."

"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!"
