Lee likes pork chops, but just frying them gets boring. I found a recipe that sounded different. I altered it a bit to suit me and they turned out amazing.
Balsamic and Honey Glazed Pork Chops
4 large pork chops
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup apricot jam
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons minced garlic
Place the pork chops in a gallon sized Ziploc bag. Mix the rest of the ingredients and pour over the pork chops. Seal and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes
I used this time to prepare my side dish of roasted vegetables and put them in the oven...another favorite.
Remove the pork chops from the bag. Shake off the excess marinade into the bag and reserve it.
Drizzle some olive oil in a large pan and cook the pork chops about 4 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
Pour the reserved marinade over the meat and cook about 5 more minutes The marinade has to boil for a few minutes, because it had the raw meat in it. It has to boil but not burn so keep an eye on it.
Remove the chops and place on a plate. Spoon some of the thickened and delicious balsamic glaze over them. Serve with some nicely browned, roasted vegetables. At least that's what I did!
Pork chops are nice but this balsamic glaze really makes them delicious. You should try it!
