    Garlic Pork Balsamico - 3.5 pts

    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    Ten cloves of garlic may sound like a lot, but after cooking garlic's
    pungent flavor mellows to give the chops a mild, slightly sweet taste.

    Makes 4 Servings

    List of Ingredients


    1 small bulb garlic (about 10 cloves)
    1 cup water
    12 ounces boneless pork loin, cut into 8 slices
    1 tsp dried rosemary, crushed
    1 tsp olive oil
    1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
    2 tbsp water
    1 tbsp honey-mustard
    Fresh rosemary sprigs (optional)


    Separate garlic bulb into cloves. Do Not peel. In a small saucepan combine garlic
    cloves and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Drain; cool slightly.
    Peel cloves and set aside. Sprinkle both sides of pork slices with rosemary,
    pressing into surface of the meat. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet. Cook half
    of pork and garlic cloves over medium heat for 6 to 7 minutes or till no pink
    remains and juices run clear, turning meat over after half the cooking time.
    Remove from skillet; keep warm. Repeat with remaining pork and garlic. For sauce,
    stir together vinegar, 2 tbsp water, and honey-mustard. Add to garlic in skillet,
    stirring to scrape up any browned bits. Bring mixture just to boiling. Reduce
    heat. Simmer for 1 to 2 minutes or till sauce becomes slightly thickened. To serve,
    spoon sauce over pork. Garnish with fresh rosemary sprigs, if desired.
