Spiced Pork Chops with Sweet and Sour Glaze

This is quite easily our favorite recipe from Giada de Laurentiis.

The glaze on these chops is outstanding. I'm going to try it on boneless, skinless chicken thighs next.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 bone-in pork chops
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flake

For the glaze:

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into cubes, softened

1. Season pork chops with salt, pepper and the red pepper flakes.

2. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the chops and cook 5-6 minutes per side until done. Remove from heat.

3. Meanwhile, place glaze ingredients into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and simmer for 7-9 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the butter until melted. Add salt and pepper to taste.

4. Serve chops drizzled with glaze.
