Raspberry Balsamic Pork


Besties, do I have a Good recipe for you. This raspberry balsamic pork is light, fast and tasty. It seems fancy enough for your Valentine's meal but easy enough to make on a regular old Wednesday. I typically make this with chicken, so know that this is another option, but last week I decided to mix it up and make with boneless pork chops. This is so versatile you can use thin or thick cut pork or boneless chicken. Let's get to the recipe so you can see how I made this.


4 boneless pork chops or chicken breasts

2 Tbs olive oil



Option: Citrus Herb Seasoning 

2 Tbs Balsamic vinegar

1/3 cup Raspberry preserves (preferably seedless)

Since I made this with pork, I will be providing instructions referencing pork, but know you can substitute chicken here too.

-Season pork with salt and pepper. If you want to give this dish a little something extra season with a citrus herb seasoning too. I love the Citrus Herb Seasoning from Tastefully Simple and added it in the prep stage.

-Gently heat a large pan over medium heat and add 2 Tbs. of olive oil

-Brown pork about 8 minutes a side based on thickness (mine shown above are thick) until cooked thoroughly. Typically you want the pork to be 150 degrees with a meat thermometer.

-Once the pork reaches the internal temperature of 150 degrees, take them out of the pan and let them rest three minutes.

-Turn the heat to medium/low and add the 2 Tbs. of balsamic vinegar . Gently deglaze the pan scraping up the brown bits.

-Add raspberry preserves and let the balsamic and preserves melt in together.

-Once the preserves have melted remove from heat and serve over the pork chops.

Serve with rice and steamed vegetables. We like this with jasmine rice.

To make Better add one element of organic pork, organic vegetables or brown rice. To make Best add multiple elements of organic pork, organic vegetables and brown rice.  If you think your kids won't eat the sauce, the pork chops alone are so Good and can certainly be dipped in ranch dressing if that is what your kids like. Enjoy.
