Balsamic Pork Chops


  • pork chops
  • vegetable oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard


Heat some vegetable oil in a fry pan over medium-high heat. Sprinkle salt and pepper over pork chops. Cook in the pan till done. Remove pork chops to a plate.


In the same pan, add a bit more oil, and saute some onions. Then add 3 Tbsp. brown sugar, 1/2 cup orange juice, 3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar and 1 tsp. Dijon mustard. Bring to a boil on high heat, then lower heat to medium and simmer till reduced and thickened, about 10 minutes. Serve sauce over pork chops. Note: That is what the recipe said to do. I don't like onions, so eliminated them, and I put the chops back in the pan with the sauce for the last 5 minutes or so of the reduction time, and turned them a time or two so the sauce could really "soak" in the meat. Oh my - delicious!
