Monday’s Menu: Balsamic Glazed Pork Chops

Need an easy and yummy idea for Supper tonight? I found inspiration for this recipe on Pinterest and tried making it last week, even though Adam is not a fan of vinegar. You can easily subsitute a meat of your choice if you are not a fan of pork.


  • 4 Boneless Pork Chops
  • Garlic Salt
  • Pepper
  • Onion Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2/3 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon Coconut Sugar

Balsalmic Pork Chops 2


  1. Season both sides of chops with garlic salt, pepper, and onion powder.
  2. Heat pan to medium heat, then add olive oil and heat.
  3. Add pork chops and cover pan. Cook over medium high heat until browned on both sides (about 5 minutes.)
  4. Place pork chops on plate. Lower heat, to make the reduction, add vinegar, sugar and cook until sauce thickens (about five minutes, sauce won’t get very thick but will become a little more like a syrup.)
  5. Place pork chops back in pan and cook an additional 2-4 minutes, rotating and turning over a few times to glaze the pork chops with the sauce.
  6. Serve by pouring sauce onto of pork chops.
*we served onto of Near East Couscous*

As soon as Adam walked in the house he smelt the vinegar and was immediately turned off. He was determined not to eat  the dish and order pizza. However, with a little convincing I got him to taste the syrup concoction and he was in! He even said he would eat it again!

Let us know if you give it a try! It really was delicious and VERY easy to make!

Hope you are enjoying your Newly Newlywed or Nearly Newlywed moments as much as we are!

PS: Remember we’re newlyweds, not experts! Sorry no final picture! It smelt so good we started eating and forgot to take a picture! Whoops!
