Quick-Fix Balsamic Pork Chops

Pan-fried pork chops are kicked up a notch with a sweet and tangy balsamic reduction sauce.


At Southern Living, we think supper should be quick, easy, and delicious. Here's what's for supper. Hi, I'm Vanessa with Southern Living Test Kitchens. For a simple and delicious weeknight meal, balsamic pork chops are what's for supper. Add the heartiness of wild rice and the sweet tang of balsamic vinegar and you have a meal guaranteed to be a hit in your household. Start by combining flour, rosemary, salt, and pepper, and dredge the pork chops in the flour mixture. Next, melt butter and olive oil in a skillet. Melting butter with the olive oil will help prevent the butter from browning. Add the pork chops to the skillet and cook four minutes on each side. I like to use a stainless steel skillet because it gives the pork a nice golden crust. [SOUND] Next, remove the pork chops from the skillet and deglaze the pan with the broth and the vinegar. [SOUND] Make sure to scrap all the brown bits in the bottom of the pan, they add tons of flavor to the sauce. Cook the sauce for about six minutes or until it's reduced by half. Add the pork chops back to the skillet so they can heat through and can absorb the flavors of the sauce. Oh my goodness this looks so great. Serve over wild rice and drizzle with the sauce.
