  2. Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the pancetta and sauté for 8-10 minutes, or until fat had rendered and the pancetta is crispy. Add the shallot and sauté 2 minutes longer.
  3. Stir in the sherry vinegar, maple syrup, and brown sugar. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to medium and simmer to reduce the liquid by half. This will take 20-25 minutes.

This recipe is word for word stolen from Mike Isabella from Top Chef. I've had the dish in one of his restaurants and own the cookbook he published it in.

Excellent! I used sugar-free syrup and splenda brown sugar and I reduced the amount of each by half. I also had to substitute red wine vinegar for the sherry but this was still really good.
