Pork Chops With Balsamic Glaze Recipe.
Without honey, the sauce in this recipe is a savory blend of balsamic vinegar and herbs with just enough red pepper flakes to give it a pop. With the honey, there’s an extra thickness to it and a little more sweet flavor to balance out the vinegar. It’s good either way – just pick whatever goes best with your dinner plans and have at it.
