This was really delicious and so easy! Perfect for an after work dinner. I used cherry tomatoes which were a bit sweeter!

This recipe has good points and not so good points. The sauce was very good however a little to sharp tasting. I know it's because of the balsamic vinegar so next time I will simmer it a little longer. I followed the recipe to the tee with the searing but it didn't work very well. The 6 mins wasn't long enough (it was still pink) and to cook it a little longer just made it tough. I was thinking to tweak it a little and sear it a couple mins while sauteeing the veggies in another pan then combining all the ingredients and simmering for maybe 20 mins. That way the balsamic vinegar will reduce and the chops won't be so tough. We'll see how it comes out the next time.

Sorry, we didn't like this at all. We didn't think the flavors blended well together and I am a adventuresome cook. I will not make this again because I can't imagine how I could improve it.
