  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar

  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp cracked black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic flattened
  • ½ cup water optional

Instructions

  • Blend together all the ingredients, except the water.
  • Place the pork chops in a large bowl or baking pan and pour marinade over them
  • if the mix does not cover the chops almost completely add in a little water to until it does. (the pan should be just big enough to hold the chops touching)
  • Allow pork chops to marinate 2-4 hours
  • Heat saute pan until very hot using a paper towel dipped in oil, lightly coat the pan, or use pan spray.
  • Place the chops into the pan and allow them to remain on that side for at least two minutes, or until sugars in marinade caramelize ( you want the side to sear and get dark in color)
  • Turn over pork chops and allow the other side to sear and caramelize (2-4 minutes)
  • At this point the pork chops should almost be done.
  • Turn over chops one last time and add two tablespoons of the marinade to the pan, after one minute remove the pan from the heat.
  • Serve pork chops with your favorite sides
