Balsamic Pork Chops


As you may have noticed, I love a quick and easy recipe!  I always feel so rushed during the week (I am not very organized nor am I a good planner - this is part of the problem.)  I am trying real hard to plan my menus at the beginning of the week to avoid my last minute panic that hits every night at 5 as I rush to the pantry and fridge (and the recipe folder usually) and see what I can throw together.  This recipe is one of those meals. A moment of panic + a few ingredients = Balsamic Pork Chops served with quick side of cous cous and veges.  Enjoy!

What you need:
3  tablespoons  all-purpose flour
1  teaspoon  chopped fresh rosemary
1/2  teaspoon  salt
1/2  teaspoon  pepper
4-6   boneless pork chops (depending on the size)
1  tablespoons  butter
1  tablespoons  olive oil
2  garlic cloves, pressed
1  cup of Chicken Broth
1/3  cup  balsamic vinegar

What you do:
Combine flour, 1 teaspoon rosemary, salt, and pepper. Dredge pork chops in flour mixture.
Melt butter with oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add garlic, and sauté 1 minute. Add pork chops, and cook 4 minutes on each side or until golden. Remove pork chops.
Add broth and vinegar, stirring to loosen particles from bottom of skillet. Cook 6 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Add pork chops, and cook 5 minutes or until done.

  3. Yum, pork chops are my husband's absolute favorite! Kids and I love pork too. I'll have to save this one.
    I bet I can bit you in not being organized (not that it's anything to brag about! LOL)
    I always envy those who are planners and are well organized. My hubby is an engineer and my approach to things just drives him nuts :)
