Pan-seared and cooked in a balsamic honey sauce, imbued with fresh herbs, take simple pork chops to the top. Summer-y, hearty, and simple.

Isn’t that what summer is all about?

Let’s talk about easy. One skillet, a handful of ingredients… and less than 30 minutes. Yes. Absolutely. Any night of the week.

Peaches

Then let’s talk about fresh. Is there anything better than summer fresh peaches? Just don’t ask me that during strawberry, or raspberry, or blueberry, or blackberry season. Okay — they’re all amazing. But peaches mark summer’s mid-point. And when they’re fresh from the trees, they are amazing.

But here’s a secret. I love these pork chops so much, I’ve also been known to use frozen, sliced peaches too. I thaw them on the counter while the pork chops are cooking. By the time I add them to the skillet, they are thawed. Just add a couple of minutes to the broiling time.

When buying peaches for this recipe or for grilling, be sure they are not overly ripe as they will fall apart during the cooking process. Look for ones that have a slight give to the touch.

Easy Dinner

These skillet pork chops are usually a one pan dinner. However, my guys love roasted potatoes, and I love a simple green salad. So often — they find themselves together on our plates.

Ingredients

4 bone-in pork chops
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1/2 tablespoon fresh minced rosemary leaves
2 peaches, sliced
crushed red pepper flakes

Instructions

Preheat the broiler to high.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the pork chops on both sides with salt and black pepper. Add the olive oil to the skillet, when the oil shimmers, add the pork chops and sear on both sides for 3-4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium; continue cooking for 8-10 minutes, or until the pork chops are cooked through.

In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, honey, thyme, rosemary, and red pepper flakes. During the last 2 minutes of cooking the pork chops, pour the balsamic honey sauce over the pork chops. Remove from heat and add the sliced peaches. Transfer the skillet to the oven and broil for 4-5 minutes, until the peaches are lightly charred.

Serve the pork with the peaches and balsamic honey sauce from the pan.
