Pork Chops with Gorgonzola and Balsamico


There has been a recent discussion on using balsamic vinegar on the Slow Talk food forum. I posted my simple glaze, and I realized I haven't made it for quite a while.

The salad was a leftover from the night before. We went to Stuft Pizza in La Quinta, and I ordered a wonderful Calamari Spinach Salad. It consisted of baby spinach, with lots of mangos, gorgonzola, (I deleted the tomatoes and avocado), tossed in a delicious balsamic vinaigrette with crispy calamari on top. I ate half my salad and half the calamari for dinner, the rest of the calamari for lunch, and added a few more spinach leaves to the rest for our dinner. We STILL couldn't finish it! That lump on the right is half a roll.

Brad grilled pork tenderloin chops. I used 1/2 cup of balsamic with 1 t. of sugar, and reduced it by half for the glaze over a little gorgonzola. The chops went into the broiler for a minute or two. Delicious!

Palma I just had to tell you I made the pork chops with the reduction sauce. Divine! thanks so much. I had such a busy day working on stuff for my dad and the property we're trying to sell. Anyway on the way home I thought I just have to get something for dinner so I bought pork chops thinking about your post I had read before I left this morning. Had everything. It was great! Thanks!

We're having friends over Sunday, and John will be grilling pork tenderloin and we'll top it off with the balsamic reduction and gorgonzola. Thank you for another wonderful foodie tip. I can't wait to try it!
