Pork Chops In Balsamic Vinegar


This is a great, easy recipe that you just can’t go wrong with. Choose a fairly good quality aged balsamic vinegar and some thick meaty pork chops for the best results. This recipe has been on my blog from the very beginning and remains one of the favorite recipes I hear about!

Pork Chops In Balsamic Vinegar

Cook Time: 25 mins

It really pays to use a good quality aged balsamic vinegar in this recipe.


6 Pork Chops
2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
All-Purpose Flour
1 Sprig Of Fresh Sage
1 Clove Garlic
3 Tablespoons Butter
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
4 oz. Dry White Wine
1/2 Chicken Or Beef Broth Cube
4 Tablespoons Balsamic vinegar
Fresh Parsley To Garnish


Cut away the extra fat from the chops.
Coat lightly first with the mustard, then in the flour.
Finely chop together the sage and the garlic.
In a frying pan, melt the butter and oil until bubbly.
Saute the sage and garlic for a minute, then add the chops and brown well on both sides.
Pour the wine over the chops and add the bouillon cube.
Cook on low until almost all of the liquid has been absorbed.
Drizzle the vinegar over the chops and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Serve hot with a sprinkling of fresh parsley.

    This is an incredible recipe! I’ve made it a number of times now, and it is a favorite of mine. For an even better result though, buy yourself a nice pork tenderloin, and slice it into 1″ thick medallions. Dredge the medallions through the dijon and flour, and then cook them according to the recipe. Skip the regular pork chops, as you never know if they’re going to be tough or not. You can’t go wrong with pork tenderloin though as it’s tender just about 100% of the time.
