  • Ready In

  1. Stir the balsamic vinegar, ketchup, brown sugar, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper together in a saucepan over medium-low heat; cook the sauce at a simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Season both sides of the pork chops with salt and black pepper. Brush the chops with the sauce from the saucepan.
  4. Cook the pork chops on the preheated grill until the pork is no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Remove from the grill and allow to rest for 3 minutes before serving with the remaining sauce on the side.

Upon completion of cooking they tasted pretty good, but smelled really bad (nauseating) while marinating & definitely smelled bad while cooking.

Very tasty - easy to follow recipe - works just as well if baked in the oven at 350F for 30-35 minutes. Yummy!!! I'll definitely be making these chops again in the future.

Really really good! Added less balsamic vinegar and about 3 tablespoons of olive oil, and left out the salt. Its a new favorite!
