I could eat these balsamic figs with every meal!

Serves 4

4 thick pork chops

salt & pepper, to taste

1 pinch of red chili flakes

1 cup balsamic

2 tablespoons sugar

8 figs, cut in half

  1. Rub the pork in with salt, pepper, and chili flakes.
  2. Place on a hot grill and give them 2 to 3 minutes on each side until it's reached desired doneness.
  3. In a small saucepan, bring balsamic and sugar to a boil.
  4. Let it simmer 5 minutes, season with salt and pepper.
  5. Add the figs, cook for 4 minutes. Serve them warm with the pork chops with some of the liquid.


You don’t have to use expensive balsamic, you’ll just be cooking it down.
