|2 tsp||olive oil|
|2 tsp||balsamic vinegar|
|6 medium||shallots (peeled; leave whole)|
|fresh ground black pepper (to taste)|
|1 tsp||rubbed sage|
|2 tsp||unsalted butter|
|2 4 ounce||boneless pork chops|
Preheat oven to 325°F.
Place the olive oil, vinegar, sugar, shallots, salt and pepper in a stainless or non-reactive pan. Cover and place in the oven. Roast the shallots for about 30 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes or so.
At about 20 minutes place a large skillet in the oven.
When the shallots are well caramelized remove the pan from the oven. Add the sage and butter and cover.
Increase the temperature of the oven to 375°F.
Spray the pan in the oven with oil and add the pork chops. Sear on one side and let cook for about 6 minutes. Turn and cook for another 7 - 8 minutes.
While the pork is cooking, place the pan with the shallots over low heat. Stir to blend in the melted butter.
When the pork is done, serve topped with the caramelized shallots.
