Balsamic-Glazed Pork Chops


2 Pork Chops
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
Olive Oil, for cooking
1/4 C Water
1 1/2 T Balsamic Vinegar
1 T Chicken Stock Concentrate
1 T Brown Sugar
Fresh Thyme Sprigs
1 T Butter

Pat pork chops dry with paper towels and season all over with salt and pepper. Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add pork chops and cook until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes per side. Transfer to plate and keep warm in microwave.

Heat same pan over medium-high heat. Add ¼ cup water, vinegar, stock concentrate, 1 TBSP brown sugar , and  2-3 thyme sprigs. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly reduced, 2-3 minutes. Season generously with pepper. Turn off heat and stir in 1 TBSP butter until melted. Discard thyme sprigs.

Return pork chops to pan and turn to coat in glaze. Top pork chops with any remaining glaze and sprinkle with as much remaining chopped thyme as you’d like.
