1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp honey
1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
4 thick-cut pork chops
Salt and black pepper to taste
How to Make It:
Cook the balsamic vinegar, butter, honey, rosemary, and pepper flakes in a small saucepan over medium heat until the butter is melted and the mixture begins to bubble lightly. Remove from the heat.
Preheat a grill or grill pan. Transfer about 2 tablespoons of the balsamic glaze to a small bowl and set aside. Season the pork chops all over with salt and pepper and brush with the remaining glaze.
When the grill is medium-hot, add the pork and cook for 3 to 4 minutes each side, depending on thickness. (For perfect medium pork, a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chop will read 140°F.)
Remove the chops and, with a clean brush, brush with the reserved glaze.
