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
- Begin cooking couscous as instructed on box
- Heat 1 tbs olive oil in a pan on medium-high until warm, but not so hot that it’s popping at you
- Coat pork chops front and back with 1 tablespoon of the balsamic vinegar
- 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
- Once cooked thoroughly, remove chops from pan and set aside to rest
- Place chopped onions in pork chop pan on medium heat to allow them to cook and soften, toss occassionally
- Heat remaining olive oil in pan on medium heat until warm, then add sliced zucchini with paprika and salt, toss occasionally, remove when soft
- 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)
- Serve & enjoy!
