  • 2 tbsp butter

Instructions

  • Preparing Pork Chops - Generously season 4 thick pork chops with salt pepper and Italian seasoning Add 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp butter to the hot pan until bubbly. Add pork chops and sear on each side for 3 minutes on medium high heat for a total of 6 minutes. Make sure to not go over 6 minutes since we will be reheating the pork chops in the sauce later on. Remove pork chops from the pan.
  • Preparing The Sauce - Add 1 tbsp butter to the now empty pan and add chopped scallions, garlic, fresh chopped rosemary and thyme. Cook for 2 minutes on medium heat. Next, add 2nd tablespoon butter, 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar and 1/4 cup honey and cook until well incorporated, approximately 2 minutes. Now add 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard - this will thicken the sauce. Taste the sauce and add salt, if necessary.
  • Add pork chops back to the pan and reheat spooning the sauce all over. This will allow pork chops to finish cooking. Pork chops internal temperature should be 145 F.
