Pork chops that are the easiest and most delicious you’ve ever had, ready in just 20 minutes. That’s a deal you can’t refuse!

In July 2011, I cooked these chops for the very first time. It’s been four years. The old photos didn’t do it justice, so I made the dish again to let you know that it needs to be prepared as soon as possible. Preferably, tonight.

These are the easiest chops to make ever. They only take 20 minutes from start to finish. The sweet-sour glaze is incredible. You will want to drink it all up. Save some to go with the pork chops, as they’re a match made in heaven.


  • Pork chops 8 ounces, bone-in, 3/4 to 1 inch thick
  • To taste, add Kosher Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper
  • Two tablespoons of unsalted butter

  • Two cloves of minced garlic
  • Half a teaspoon of dried oregano
  • Half a teaspoon of dried basil

  • To taste, add Kosher Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Pork chops can be seasoned with salt and black pepper to taste.

  • For the sweet-and-sour glaze, combine the balsamic, honey, oregano, and basil in a small pan over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
