    Balsamic vinegar is well, vinegary, right out of the bottle. But when you simmer it down, it makes a sweet syrup which pairs beautifully with pineapple. Very Polynesian if you ask me.

    You can use this recipe with boneless pork chops or bone-in pork chops, so the cooking time can vary greatly. Your best bet is to use a meat thermometer and make sure it reaches 145 degrees.

    Not too sure how to cook bone in pork chops? It’s fairly easy, it’s actually more about checking for the internal temperature, which like I said should be 145 degrees, instead of the color of the outside to know if it’s finished cooking.

    All you have to do is season both sides of your pork chops with salt and pepper, then you sear each side until it’s a nice brown color on both sides. That usually only takes a couple minutes on each side. Bone in pork chops usually take a bit longer than boneless pork chops to cook but should only be an extra 10 minutes.

    Some people get intimidated when it comes to cooking certain meats, but you’d be pleasantly surprised how easy they are to make. Pork chops shouldn’t have to be only eaten on special occasions, they should be able to be made whenever you feel like enjoying them!
