Pork Chops with Garlic and Wine

I get a lot of recipes from The Pioneer Woman.  She's a great cook.
This one is her Pork Chops with Garlic and Wine that I made tonight.
Here is her website recipe:  Click here.

Here's a picture of my cook.  Since the initial sear is a higher temperature than the rest, I seared it on the stove before putting it on the Egg.
I only took a final shot.  The sauce was excellent.  I think the balsamic vinegar added a nice touch.

    Wow VI that looks incredible! I am bookmarking! Just curious........did you put it on the egg to finish cooking the chops, after you seared it on the stove? Man my mouth I's watering!

    Yes, Kosko, you'll see in the recipe that the initial searing doesn't completely cook the pork chops.

    Great cook VI. Vinegar, used correctly, is a secret weapon (My Dad used it instead of salt on almost everything). Balsamic, cider, red wine, white wine, white, sherry in a pinch it is all good. Going to try this one, thanks for the link .

    I like how, and I'm guessing it's a golden light source, the golden highlights got picked up in the sauce or the oil in the sauce.  Either that or you photoshopped it.  Either way, nice job, and it looks great.

    We do red wine and balsamic reduction sauces frequently.  I love them. One lesson I've learned - if you open an undrinkable bad bottle of wine - pour that sh*t out.  Bad wine makes bad sauce.

    Agreed, there is no such thing as wine that is so bad it can be renamed "cooking wine". It is simply garbage.
