  • 4 pork chops you can use bone in or boneless
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup balsamic glace or as needed
  • Dried thyme
  • Fresh chopped thyme optional


  • Rub the pork chops with olive oil and season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with dried thyme. Heat a well-seasoned pan, preferably cast iron, over medium heat; add the pork chops and cook, turning occasionally and brushing with the glace, until cooked through and well glazed. Sprinkle with thyme leaves, if desired. 


A quick brine is recommended but not necessary. To brine, simply add ½ cup sugar, ½ cup salt to about 1 gallon of cold water; place the chops in and let them sit for 15 – 30 minutes.  Drain; pat dry and proceed with the recipe.
