I like to make this in a cast-iron skillet, like this one:

A heavy duty stainless steel skillet will work just fine, too.

Reduction is just a fancy way of saying “glaze.” Okay, it’s more than that, but it is a concentrated sauce of ingredients, in this case, maple syrup and balsamic vinegar, that is cooked down (reduced) to a thick sauce or glaze. The reduction adds depth of flavor which is exactly what you want when pairing with pork chops, which on their own can be a bit…bland. Not so with this reduction; try it yourself – it’s so easy!

I like to serve these chops with a side of yummy garlic mashed potatoes and these easy Brussels Sprouts.

Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 4-oz. boneless pork chops
Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • ½ c. balsamic vinegar
  • 2½ T. real maple syrup
Instructions
  1. Heat olive oil in a large, heavy-duty skillet over medium-high heat.

  2. Season pork chops on each side with salt and pepper, to taste, and add to the pre-heated skillet. Brown pork chops on each side, approximately 3 minutes per side. Remove pork chops from pan and set aside on a rimmed dish.

  3. Add balsamic vinegar and maple syrup to hot skillet and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium and cook mixture until it is reduced to about ⅓ of its original volume. When ready, the glaze will become thick and syrupy. (Do not overcook or the mixture will become hard and sticky).


  4. Return the pork chops to the skillet along with the juices that collected on the plate. Stir liquid to blend juices into the syrup and cook for another 1-2 minutes. 


  5. Transfer chops to a serving platter or individual serving plate and drizzle with pan sauce. Serve immediately.
