Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!

glazed porkchops


These are the best pork chops I have ever put in my mouth. 


In fact, they were so good that my (usually-kinda-picky) son kept asking for more ~ even after complaining that we were trying another pork chop recipe this week. They were good even before I added the balsamic glaze sauce, so I made my kids a plain version without the sauce that turned out fantastic, and then added the glaze. Both ways were just perfect, and I’ve decided I need to ask you all for recipes again soon!


To make life even a little easier they were done in less than 20 minutes, and have just 4 Weight Watchers points. Pop some potatoes in the oven to bake, add and a salad and some veggies on the side, and you’ve got dinner tonight!

Balsamic Glazed Pork Chops (4 Weight Watchers Points)


  • 4 boneless thinly sliced pork chops, pounded to 3/4" thick
  • garlic salt
  • pepper
  • onion flakes or onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon sugar


  1. Pound pork chops to 3/4" thick.
  2. Season chops with garlic salt, pepper, and onion flakes or onion powder.
  3. Heat pan to medium heat for one minute, then add olive oil and heat another minute.
  4. Add pork chops and cook over medium high heat until browned on both sides (about 5 minutes.)
  5. Place pork chops on plate, lower heat a bit, then add vinegar and sugar and cook until sauce thickens (about two minutes, sauce won't get very thick but will become a little more syrup like.)
  6. Place pork chops back in pan and cook an additional 4 minutes, rotating and turning over a few times to glaze the pork chops with the sauce.
  7. Serve hot, with sauce poured over pork chops.

    • So glad you liked them Amie – thanks so much for letting me know! I was so surprised at how good they were and am thrilled to have a new pork chop recipe too. 🙂

  3. Christy says:

    Finally made these tonight and the whole family loved them. Especially hubby! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Is the olive oil part of the sauce, or dump after pork chops are browned?

  5. Hi Kelsey! The olive oil is to cook the pork chops in after they’re seasoned – so season them, then add oil to skillet, then cook and follow the rest of the directions. Hope that helps!

  6. these were absolutely delicious! I was skeptical at first how strong the balsamic was so I added a bit more sugar and it turned out beautifully. Hubby was asking for more! Definitely making this at least once a week, thank you!

  7. I made this tonight and it was DELICIOUS!! I was sad that I didn’t make more. Thank you for sharing this amazing recipe.

  8. What is the serving size for this? Is it one or 2 pork chops for 4 SP?
    We love the recipe!

  9. I see the WW points, but I would love to know the number of calories per serving and serving size, please. 🙂
