March 2019 USWM Featured Chef, Steph Lodge shares this mouth-watering recipe for Balsamic Glazed Pork Chops. It’s a quick and easy recipe that you’ll enjoy sharing with your family and friends.

As you might expect, Balsamic Vinegar has its origins in Italy. It’s dark colored and has a richly flavored from freshly crushed grapes. The whole grape is used in the process which gives the finished vinegar a complex flavor profile. You’ll find it commonly used as the base marinade in many fine restaurants.

US Wellness Pork is sourced from farms with a dedication to sustainable farming methods. Our pork comes from 1960’s heritage breeds that have outstanding flavor.
