Balsamic Pork Chops

I don’t know about the rest of the world… but I LOVE balsamic vinegar. I think it’s so tasty. It’s always interesting incorporating it into meals because there’s a delicate balance between too much especially if you’re not a vinegar person.

So I got the idea from MyFitnessPal and I made it a little different, just because I have my own little style of cooking. I paired it with CousCous and cooked Zucchini.


  • 2 pork chops
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 2 tbs of balsamic vinegar, separated
  • 2 tbs olive oil, seperated
  • 1 large zucchini, sliced
  • 1/2 tbs paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 box of couscous


  1. Begin cooking couscous as instructed on box
  2. Heat 1 tbs olive oil in a pan on medium-high until warm, but not so hot that it’s popping at you
  3. Coat pork chops front and back with 1 tablespoon of the balsamic vinegar
  4. Add pork chops to pan and sear on each side for about 2 minutes, reduce heat slightly to medium and place cover on pan, continue cooking each side for additional 3 minutes each
  5. Once cooked thoroughly, remove chops from pan and set aside to rest
  6. Place chopped onions in pork chop pan on medium heat to allow them to cook and soften, toss occassionally
  7. Heat remaining olive oil in pan on medium heat until warm, then add sliced zucchini with paprika and salt, toss occasionally, remove when soft
  8. When onions are soft, add pork chops back into pan to allow them to warm up and mix flavor with onions (option to add a tad bit more balsamic for more of that taste)
  9. Serve & enjoy!
