Balsamic Maple Bone In Loin Pork Chops

Friday, May 3, 2013

3 bone in pork chops, about ½ inch thick
2 tablespoons aged balsamic
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons chicken stock
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Wash and dry pork chops really well. Salt and pepper on both sides.

In a small bowl, combine maple syrup, stock and balsamic vinegar. Set aside.

Add oil to your pan, heat till really hot. I used a grill pan but a regular pan is fine as well. I have this grill pan by Le Creuset which I love: Le Creuset Square Skillet Grill Pan
Add your pork chops to pan. Cook about 2 minutes and flip over to the other side. Cook another 2 minutes (more or less).
Do not overcook. Remove to a plate and cover. Add your mixture of balsamic, maple syrup and stock. Deglaze pan and bring to a fast boil. Add pork back to pan for a few seconds.
Serve immediately.

I served my pork chops with a side of roasted fennel. Recipe here:
