This is a quick recipe that can be made up with little effort if you are stressed out after a long day at work. Food should bring comfort, not add more stress!

It was a real hit in the test kitchen, with our taste testers enjoying it immensely. It is made with center cut, bone-in pork chops in a cast iron skillet. Jeff is one of those supremely gifted cooks that can make people try food they don't normally like, which means that someone here who only likes pork chops if they are extremely burnt tried these and absolutely loved them, despite the fact that they weren't a blackened crisp that nearly fell apart into ash on her plate.

Jeff thinks this is a "borderline fancy recipe, really almost fancy, depending on who you're eating with." The balsamic vinegar and all those other things cooked up in one skillet and the drippings poured over the meat slowly like it is the star of a commercial when it has been removed from the pan? Yeah, it is for sure almost fancy. That incredible aesthetic value and the wonderful smell had our in-house vegetarian having second thoughts about her diet decisions.

We served our honey balsamic pork chops with roasted potatoes, which were so good at least one person offered to eat them all to get them off Jeff's hands. He said he was prepared to fight to the death for the potatoes though, and said person graciously declined the opportunity to battle for the roasted potatoes.
