Star Anise Vanilla Balsamic Pork Chops

Star Anise Vanilla Balsamic Pork Chops

*4 pork chops bone in or out

1 Tbsp Soy sauce

1 tsp garlic powder

2 Tbsp any traditional Spirits & Spice Extra Virgin Olive Oil 

*1 Tbsp unsalted butter

6 cloves garlic, minced

¼ cup honey

¼ cup water (or chicken broth)

2 Tbsp Spirits & Spice Star Anise Vanilla Balsamic

Pepper to season 

Preheat oven broiler (or grill) on medium-high heat. Season chops with soy sauce, pepper and garlic powder just before cooking.

Heat oil in a pan or skillet over medium high heat until hot. Sear chops on both sides until golden and cooked through (about 4-5 minutes each side). Transfer to a plate; set aside.

Reduce heat to medium. Melt butter in the same pan, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Sauté garlic until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Add the honey, water and balsamic. Increase heat to medium-high and continue to cook until the sauce reduces down and thickens slightly (about 3-4 minutes), while stirring occasionally.

Add pork back into the pan, baste generously with the sauce and broil/grill for 1-2 minutes, or until edges are slightly charred.

Garnish with parsley and serve over vegetables, rice, pasta or with a salad.
