Pork Chops with Honey-Balsamic Glaze ala ~DKBB~
(original recipe by Nicole Clayton on tasteofhome.com)

4 bone-in pork loin chops
½ tsp. crushed red pepper
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
2 tbsp. olive oil

Glaze
½ cup balsamic vinegar (Wildly Delicious Fine Foods Black Heat Hot Spice Balsamic Vinegar)
½ cup honey
2 tsp. dried minced onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. minced fresh rosemary or ¼ tsp. dried rosemary, crushed
⅛ tsp. salt
⅛ tsp. pepper
¼ cup butter, cubed
  • Sprinkle pork chops with crushed pepper flakes, salt, and pepper (both sides).
  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; add pork chops; cook for 5 -7 minutes per side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium, a meat thermometer should read 160°). Remove from pan and keep warm.
  • In the same skillet, whisk the vinegar, honey, minced onion, garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 6 – 8 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove from heat and whisk in butter until melted.
