Balsamic Glazed Pork Chop

Ok my friends, Let me start by saying that I have never made a meal that is truly like going to a fine dining restaurant. I’m serious… These were probably the best pork chops I have ever made, low calorie and simple too.  It goes great with Broccoli Rice Casserole or Loaded Mashed Potatoes or just a good ol’ side of veggies.  So, if you’re ever having one of those days where life is knocking you down, and your just pretending to be a functioning adult and/or parent… try making dinner a little easier by having a few pork chops in your freezer it’s a fabulous go to meal for your entire family:)

4 boneless thinly sliced pork chops, pounded to 3/4″ thick
garlic salt
pepper
onion flakes or onion powder
2 tablespoons olive oil
2/3 cup balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoon sugar

Pound pork chops to 3/4″ thick.  Season chops with garlic salt, pepper, and onion flakes or onion powder.  Heat pan to medium heat for one minute, then add olive oil and heat another minute.  Add pork chops and cook over medium high heat until browned on both sides (about 5 minutes.)  Place pork chops on plate, lower heat a bit, then add vinegar and sugar and cook until sauce thickens (about two minutes, sauce won’t get very thick but will become a little more syrup like.)  Place pork chops back in pan and cook an additional 4 minutes, rotating and turning over a few times to glaze the pork chops with the sauce.  Serve hot, with sauce poured over pork chops.
