About

My family loves pork chops! Considering the nutritional value of this "other white meat", finding interesting preparations for it has become sort of a mission of mine. The Balsamic vinegar in this recipe blends a nice tang with the sweetness of the pear and the gentle bite of the onion.

The "one pan dinner" layout of this meal makes it simple to prepare and easy to clean up.
