Balsamic-Maple Glazed Pork Chops

by Carrie on August 20, 2009

You should know by now that Adam and I love pork chops, last time we were at the grocery store they had some really nice thick pork chops, which I of courseĀ  had to buy. But I knew I wanted to do something different with them.

This recipe was awesome, and something different then what we normally do. The flavor was both sweet and savory in them, it was wonderful. I served with mashed potatoes and green bean casserole.

A very yummy and wonderful meal.

Pork Chops with Balsamic-Maple Glaze (From: Elly Says Opa)Balsamic Maple  Glazed Pork Chops

  • 2 pork chops
  • 2 tsp. herbs de Provence
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup

Pat the pork chops dry and then rub each chop with 1 tsp. of herbs de Provence. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper. Heat a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat and add the oil. Once hot, add the pork chops and cook until a little underdone (about 2-3 minutes per side, will vary depending on thickness, etc.). Remove pork chops from the pan.

Increase the heat to medium-high and add the balsamic vinegar. Deglaze the pan, scraping up all the browned bits, and reduce the vinegar by about half. Stir in the maple syrup. Add the pork chops back into the skillet and continue cooking until done, about a minute per side. Most of the glaze should be soaked up by the chops. Drizzle the chops with any additional glaze.

I used to make pork chops all the time, but I’ve been sticking with chicken a lot lately.
