Make boring pork chops absolutely delicious.
Contributor: Heather Elder
4 (3/4-inch-thick) center-cut pork chops (about 2 lb total)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 oz small shallots (about 8), quartered and peeled, leaving root ends intact
2/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
• Pat pork dry and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
• Cook, turning over once, until pork is just cooked through, about 3 minutes total.(note: I had to cook longer than 3 minutes)
• Transfer pork to a platter and boil sauce until thickened and syrupy, 1 to 2 minutes.
• Pour sauce over pork.
