Dinner tonight, August 17, 2015
A different pork dish,a bit to sweet for my taste, but over all an interesting dish
4 servings
  • 3-4 pork chops
  • for the marinade
  • cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ tablespoon ground basil
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • for the blueberry sauce
  • 1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1) To prepare marinade, combine balsamic vinegar, water, garlic, and next four ingredients in a bowl and whisk til smooth. Pour marinade in to a large ziplock bag and add pork chops. Seal bag and chill 1 hour or overnight.
2) Set oven to broil. Line a baking sheet and spray with cooking spray.
3) Remove marinated pork chops from bag and discard marinade. Lay pork chops on baking sheet so that they are not touching. Cook 8 minutes on each side. Cut into the center of one pork chop to check doneness. If desired, cook longer for more well-done meat.
4) While meat is cooking, add blueberry sauce ingredients to a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and continue to cook until ¾ of liquid is gone, be sure to stir periodically. Top cooked pork chops with blueberry sauce.
