Let's talk about summer in a pan...these pork chops have the sweet summer taste of ripe peaches, honey and oregano and are stepped up with balsamic vinegar, to give them a tangy, sweet flavor.
Get yourself some gorgeous, thick bone-in pork chops and sear them on the cooktop. Add a sauce of balsamic & honey, throw the peach slices in, and broil it until you get a syrupy consistency and the peaches are beautifully caramelized.
Top the chops with some feta cheese and basil and you are ready to dine! All with just 10 ingredients, and less than 30 minutes start to finish!
Makes: 4 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
2 bone-in pork chops
Kosher salt and black pepper
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
½ cup balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp chopped fresh oregano or thyme leaves
2 peaches, sliced
6 ounces feta cheese, cubed or crumbled
1/2 cup fresh basil
crushed red pepper flakes
Preheat the broiler to high. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Season the pork chops all over with kosher salt and pepper. Add the olive oil to the skillet; when the oil shimmers, add the pork and sear on both sides for 3-4 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking for about 8-10 minutes, or until the pork chops are cooked through.
In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, honey, and oregano. During the last 2 minutes of cooking, pour the balsamic sauce over the pork chops. Remove from the heat and add the peaches. Transfer the skillet to the oven and broil for 4-5 minutes or until the peaches are lightly charred. If the balsamic sauce starts getting too thick, add ¼ cup of water to keep it saucy.
Remove from the oven and top with feta, fresh basil, and chili flakes. Serve the pork with the peaches and balsamic sauce from the pan. Enjoy!
