Yummy. Yummy. Yummy. I love pork and I love roasted garlic more, and adding balsamic just makes it all better. Another delicious recipe to add to my cookbook. Thanks.

I saw this prepared on Everyday Italian this past weekend, and am so happy you posted it here! I really love this recipe, and the vinaigrette is very versatile. In addition to the pork, we ate it on a salad of greens and my daughter even put it on her baked potato! Yummo!
