Enjoy the sweet and slightly sour taste of Balsamic Glazed Pork Chops.. they are very easy to make and your guests will think you are amazing when you serve this restaurant style dish that is eager to please


Extra Virgin Olive Oil

4 bone in Pork Chops

2 cloves of garlic peeled and chopped

sprig of Rosemary

cayenne pepper


about 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/3 cup Maple Syrup  (or honey)




If frozen, thaw your pork chops completely for maximum tenderness, and do not thaw in microwave, as it will make your meats tough.. you will need 4 bone in pork chops


Tenderize 4 bone in pork chops, I use a jaccard, but you can use a fork or mallet if you don’t have one


mince your garlic add to a small bowl, add your ginger, rosemary, cayenne pepper

add extra virgin olive oil and mix well  with fork

Now put a little of your olive oil in a cast iron skillet and get it hot,

add your pork chops with tongs…

They should start to sizzle right away, add salt and pepper the chops

let them brown nicely on each side..

once they are nicely browned, turn down your heat and add your garlic mixture over top of the chops..

next pour in your Balsamic Vinegar, about 1/4 cup , I am using Tagornar

then pour in your Maple Syrup immediately after..

you want to let them cook in this mixture, while the glaze is reducing..  (to reduce means to let evaporate, as it cooks down into a thick glaze)

You will know when it is done because it will become sticky and you can visually see that the sauce  has reduced in volume.. at this point you are ready to plate your pork chops.

I served mine with roasted cajun potatoes and some leftover bow tie’s & peas pasta salad..

hope you enjoy!
