Pork Chops with a Rosemary Balsamic Strawberry Sauce...

Serves: 2
   2 pork chops, bone in

   1 tsp crushed rosemary
   1/2 tsp coarse salt
   1/4 tsp pepper
   1 tsp olive oil
   4 tbsp rosa moscato (I used Brown Brothers Zibibbo Rosa)
Rosemary Balsamic Strawberry Sauce:
   1 cup strawberries, finley chopped
   1/2 tbsp low GI cane sugar
   2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
   1/8 tsp dried rosemary
   Pinch coarse salt
   Pinch pepper
  1. In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, add the strawberries,brown sugar, vinegar,rosemary,salt and pepper. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Reduce heat to low and cook for an additional 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally or until the sauce becomes thick.
  3. Meanwhile, pat the pork chops dry with paper towel and season with rosemary, salt and pepper.
  4. In a large skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil and butter. Sauté pork chops for 5 minutes per side (adding half moscato each time, it gives great colour and adds to the taste) or until the meat bounces back at the correct viscocity- medium. Allow to sit for 3 minutes prior to cutting.
    Serve with a steamed greens, sauteed potatoes and the sauce over the pork chops or on the side as a dipping sauce.
****There will be left over Rosemary Balsamic Strawberry Sauce, it is great in salads;
on other meats or even on deserts****
