    Not too good. I think I messed up the sauce. Pork chops were too thin

    Great sauce! Mine was a little salty, but that was my fault. Will definitely make again!!!

    This was deeeelicious - great with mashed potatoes. Sauce/gravy is a little tangy from the balsamic and garlic. I loved it!

    I made several modifications because this delightful recipe naturally lends itself to it and I was rewarded with an amazing meal. I only had a single pork chop so that was the first change. I also used white wine and white wine vinegar. I used salt, onion powder and savory on the pork chop since I’m not a huge fan of pepper - it was sensational. I’m excited to experiment with other variations! What a great recipe!!

    This was really tasty! The flavors of the wine, balsamic, and garlic together are so delicious. I think a small onion or shallots would be a great addition to this recipe and I’ll probably try that next time.

    I would actually give this recipe 4.5 stars if possible simply because the wine reduction took MUCH longer than expected, and the final sauce was not nearly as thick as the recipe describes. However, the taste was amazing and it paired really well over rice. I used Merlot and added an extra tablespoon of balsamic, just because my chef nose was telling me it needed a little more tang. This is a very salty/umami dish, so if that's what you like, definitely try it.

    this was AMAZING!!!!! reduction, of course, is key i cut garlic cloves in half lengthwise as they were large. whole family loves it... nice thick, but not too think sauce with a great flavor!

    This was the worst recipe I've ever wasted my time on! It looked really good in the picture and I followed it to a tee. The flavor was horrible the only reason it has 1 star is because I couldn't figure how to take the star off!
