Ingredients

  • 4

    (3/4-inch-thick) boneless center-cut loin pork chops

  • 2

    teaspoon lemon pepper

  • 1

    tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1/2

    cup balsamic vinegar

  • 1/3

    cup chicken broth

  • 2

    tablespoon light brown sugar

Directions

Sprinkle chops evenly with lemon pepper. Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat until hot; add chops. Cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove chops from skillet; keep warm. Combine vinegar, broth, and brown sugar in skillet, stirring to loosen any browned bits from pan. Cook over medium-high heat 4 minutes, or until mixture is reduced to a thin sauce. Spoon over chops. Usually when you brown meat in a skillet, little caramelized bits of the meat will cling to the pan. These little nuggets are full of flavor, so 'deglaze' the skillet like the fancy chefs do. Add a little liquid to the skillet and stir the bits into a tasty sauce, like in this recipe.
