Grilled Pork Steaks with Balsamic-Rosemary Glaze

Grilled Pork Steaks with Balsamic-Rosemary Glaze
Don't know what to make for dinner tonight? Chances are that you already have most of the ingredients to make this incredibly flavorful dish.

Tender & inexpensive pork steaks get a big flavor boost from a quick basting with a rich, tangy balsamic, rosemary & butter glaze. You can prepare this recipe under the broiler or on the stove top using a grill pan, but it's at it's absolute savory best when done on a charcoal grill.

4 pork blade steaks or bone-in pork chops
3 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup Crema di Balsamico (balsamic cream)
4 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 sprig fresh rosemary, torn into pieces
Additional fresh rosemary for garnish



Put pork chops on a plate and drizzle with the olive oil. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper and allow to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.


While the pork chops are marinating, prepare a charcoal grill or heat a gas grill to medium-high heat. Warm the balsamic cream over medium-low heat, stir in the butter and rosemary and set aside.


Put the pork chops on the hot grill and cook, turning each chop twice and brushing frequently with the balsamic- butter mixture, until browned and cooked medium rare to medium, about 10–12 minutes (depending on the thickness of the chops and the desired level of doneness). Transfer to a warm plate and allow to stand for a few minutes before serving with any remaining sauce. Garnish each plate with a sprig of fresh rosemary.


Cooking tips:

If you don't have balsamic cream in your pantry, just heat 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar in a pan and swirl in a slurry of 1 teaspoon of cornstarch dissolved in a little water.  Bring to a low simmer for 5 minutes to make your own quick balsamic glaze.
