    FlemishMinx's Note:

    This is a quick yet tasty dish. The acidity of the balsamic vinegar is balanced by the sweetness of the shallots. I suppose the chops could be broiled rather than pan-fried, but you would lose the lovely drippings for the sauce.

      My husband and I both loved this recipe. I didn't and wouldn't change a thing (except the other reviewers advice to add broth first). This went perfectly with roasted potatoes and sauteed green beans and mushrooms.

      I used 5 pork steaks and followed everything on the recipe. However, I did not add butter into the sauce as I was opting for a healthier approach for dinner last night. I certainly will be making this again and maybe the next time I will add a little butter and will give an update here if it makes any difference to the sauce. Thank you, FM!

      Excellent & easy! Next time I'll use loin chops. I used bone-in and they were too fatty. The sauce was so good, wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for this yummy recipe!
