Balsamic Pork Chops
- 1 6.2-ounce package fast-cooking long-grain and wild rice mix
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 6 3/4-inch-thick boneless pork chops
- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves pressed
- 1 14 1/2-ounce can chicken broth
- 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
- Garnish: fresh rosemary sprigs
- Cook long-grain wild rice according to package directions; keep warm.
- In a shallow dish, combine flour with the minced rosemary, salt and pepper. Dredge each pork chop in the flour mixture and shake gently to remove the excess.
- Add butter and oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat until melted. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute or until fragrant. Cook chops about 4 minutes on each side or until nicely golden. Remove to platter.
