INGREDIENTS: 

• 4 boneless pork chops;

• 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar;

• 3 tbsp. raw honey; (optional)

• 2 garlic cloves, minced;

• 1/2 tsp. dried oregano;

• 1/2 tsp. dried basil;

• 1/2 tsp. dried thyme;

• 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes;

• Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper;

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 F. Season pork chops to taste with salt and pepper. In a small saucepan, combine the balsamic vinegar, honey, garlic, oregano, basil, thyme, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper to taste.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until slightly thickened (5 to 6 minutes). Sear the pork chops on both sides in an oven safe skillet over high heat, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Brush the pork chops with the glaze. Transfer the skillet with the chops to the oven and roast 6 to 8 minutes. Brush one last time with balsamic glaze before serving.
