These are the most tender, moist and flavorful pork chops you’ll ever eat! The glaze is divine with bacon, shallots, garlic, balsamic, brown sugar and fresh rosemary! They will rival any restaurant chops and with just a few ingredients and under 30 minutes of time! You must make these!


Serves 2

  • 2 thick cut, bone-in pork chops
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 Tbs of olive oil
  • 3 pieces of bacon
  • 2 large shallots, quartered
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbs of brown sugar
  • 2 tsp of fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 3/4 – 1 cup of chicken broth


Start by seasoning the pork chops on both sides with a little salt & pepper. Heat the oil almost to the smoking point in a large heavy skillet, cast iron if you have one. Sear the chops 3-4 minutes per side, until nicely browned, then remove from the skillet.Now cook the bacon until crispy, remove and drain on a paper towel and crumble. Drain off most of the grease from the skillet and turn the heat to medium. Add the shallots, cook and stir for 4 minutes, then add in the garlic and cook 1 more minute.Now, stir in the vinegar, brown sugar, rosemary and the crumbled bacon. Cook and stir for 3-4 minutes. Now, add in 3/4 cup of the chicken broth and nestle the chops in. Cook over low/medium heat for 12- 14 minutes, turning frequently and spooning the sauce over the chops. If it seems you need more sauce, add in another 1/4 cup of chicken broth. That’s it! To serve, plate the chops and spoon over that amazing sauce and shallots!
