Rosemary Balsamic Pork Chops

In recent weeks, I have been looking for healthy flavorful meals to fix my family. Pork is usually not the first meat I gravitate toward in the supermarket. However, I have found that being chickened out and bored of beef will make you try new things. In this new venture, I am finding quite a few yummy recipes for pork "the other white meat." This savory recipe certainly entertains my taste buds. The rosemary gives it a fresh flavor. While the sweetness of the honey mustard mixed with the bitterness of balsamic vinegar create a deletable sauce!

Rosemary Balsamic Pork Chops

4 lean cut pork chops
4 tablespoons of garlic
2 tablespoons of olive oil
salt & pepper
1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons of water
1 tablespoon of honey Dijon mustard

Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Press the rosemary into each side of the pork chops. Pour olive oil in sauce pan. Add garlic. Heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Cook pork at medium heat about 5 minutes on each side or until cook thoroughly. Remove pork chops from pan leaving the garlic behind. Mix balsamic vinegar, water and mustard in small dish. Add the mixture to the garlic. Cook an additional 2 minutes until thickened.
