Knock Your Socks off Pork Chops

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by knid44

A pretty simple combination of flavors that explodes in your mouth. Use the best vinegar and fresh rosemary whenever possible. Generally I like to eyeball my measurements, so adjust the amount to your taste. This is my standby for romantic dinners and has always had great success ;)

The combination of the garlic and balsamic vinegar is excellent, but the rosemary just seemed to compete with it. I would make it without the rosemary next time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. coarsely chop garlic.
  2. in a shallow dish, combine the garlic and olive oil.
  3. Using a pestle, crush the garlic in the oil, allowing the flavors to mesh. Of course, if you're a normal person like me and don't own a pestle, any instrument with a blunt end will work, such as the base of a glass or back of a spoon. I use a shot-glass.
  4. Add the rosemary and vinegar to the oil-garlic mix.
  5. Rub the pork chops with a little salt, then add them to the marinade, being sure to coat them well. Cover and refrigerate for one hour.
  6. Place the meat in a skillet on medium-low heat, pouring any remaining marinade on top. Cook for about ten minutes, then turn and cook for another five minutes or until done.
