Grilled Pork Chops with Rosemary Agrodolce - Paleo
Agrodolce is a wonderful, delicious and surprisingly easy to make sweet and sour sauce. Try using it to glaze a beautifully grilled pork chops or other cuts of meat!
- 2 centre-cut pork loin chops - or similar cut
- 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup Extra Virgin olive oil EVOO
- 2-3 cloves garlic - finely sliced
- 1 tbsp fresh rosemary - finely chopped
- kosher salt and black pepper
- sweet paprika
- avocado oil
Add balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, EVOO, garlic and rosemary to a cold 2-qt sauce pan. Set over medium-low heat and gently cook the agrodolce until reduced and syrupy (approx. 10-12 min total).
Meanwhile, preheat grill pan or grill to high heat. Pat pork chops dry with paper towel, drizzle with a small amount of avocado oil and gently season both sides with salt, pepper and paprika.
Grill pork chops approximately 2-3 minutes (depending on thickness). Flip and glaze with agrodolce. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes or until desired doneness, flip and baste with more agrodolce.
Transfer grilled pork chops to a serving platter and drizzle with more agrodolce. Serve with a sautéed bitter vegetable, such as rapini, and roasted sweet potatoes.
