Honey Balsamic POrk Chops


4 bone-in pork chops
2 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
½ cup balsamic vinegar
½ cup honey, (orange blossom honey is wonderful if handy)
2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
4 tablespoon unsalted butter at room temperature


In a large heavy skillet heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Add the pork to the skillet and cook for about 7 to 10 minutes (depending of the size of the chops, nicely browned and no juices running) per side. Transfer to a plate and cover loosely and let rest.
Remove all excess oil from the skillet and over medium heat add the vinegar, honey, honey, rosemary and thyme. Stir constantly until the honey is dissolved. Lower the heat and cook for another 5 minutes. Add the butter and whisk until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Pour the sauce over the chops and serve.

Wonderful!! I am sure you will enjoy it, please let me know. Thank you for reading my blog. Have a great evening.


The pork recipe is a combination of two recipes from old Italian cook books, modified to suit our taste buds.

TIP: The dinner is pretty easy and simple to assemble however make sure that all the ingredients are prepared and ready to go before cooking. Start with the potatoes as they are the one taking the longest and they do not need to be hot when served. To save time, the honey-balsamic sauce may be prepared in a small sauce pan while cooking the pork chops.
