These balsamic glazed pork chops are quick and easy to prepare for dinner. I like to use boneless pork chops but bone-in will work fine as well. The pork chops are well seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and ginger. The chops are then fried in the pan until fully cooked. Next, a balsamic glaze is prepared by adding balsamic vinegar and sugar to the pan. The pork chops are cooked for a minute or so while turning in the glaze. You will want to make sure not to cook them for too long or the pork chops will become overcooked. I like to serve these pork chops with flavored rice or baked potato. Enjoy.
- 4 boneless pork chops (pounded to about ¾ of an inch thick)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2/3 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- Trim the fat from the pork chops. In a small bowl combine salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and ground ginger. Season the pork chops on both sides with this mixture.
- Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and cook until well browned on both sides and cooked through (the internal temperature has reached 145 degrees F), about 5 minutes total. Remove the pork chops from the pan to a plate. Lower the heat slightly.
- Add balsamic vinegar and sugar and cook until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Return the pork chops back to the pan with any liquid that has collected on the plate.
- Turn the pork chops several times to get them coated with the sauce. Serve hot and pour additional sauce over the pork chops for serving if desired.
