    Just made these delicious pork chops. I followed the recipe to a T. They were super moist. I paired them with roasted vegetables (shallots, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, fennel bulb, carrots) that I seasoned with garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt and pepper, and EVOO. I drizzled the entire meal with Nona Pia’s balsamic and glaze. Absolutely delicious!!
