Pork Chops with Balsamic-Honey Glaze

The past few weeks have been busy and our dinners have therefore ended up being pretty simple. Sundays dinner of pork chops with a balsamic-honey glaze was no exception. I came across the recipe awhile back in one of those "Eat This, Not That" cookbooks. I love browsing through those cookbooks at the bookstore! They are full of simple and healthy versions of restaurant food. This recipe is low in fat and calories but you'd never know it!

Pork Chops with Balsamic-Honey Glaze
from "Eat This, Not That" Cookbook

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 T. butter
2 T. honey
1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
4 thick-cut pork chops
salt and pepper

In a small saucepan, cook the balsamic vinegar, butter, honey, rosemary, and pepper flakes over medium heat. When the butter has melted and the mixture starts to bubble remove the the sauce from the heat.

Prepare a grill or grill pan. Transfer a little of the balsamic glaze to a small bowl and set aside. Season the pork with salt and pepper and brush with the remaining glaze. Place the pork on a medium-hot grill and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, depending on thickness. Remove the chops and drizzle with the remaining sauce prior to serving.
