Recipe For Pork Chops with Vinegar


6 (6 ounce) boneless pork loin chops
3 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/4 cup water
salt and pepper, to taste
4 anchovy fillets, chopped
2 teaspoons softened butter
1/2 teaspoon all-purpose flour


Pound pork chops to 1/4 inch thickness. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium-high heat and brown pork on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Drain fat. Pour water, vinegar, salt, and pepper in pan. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook chops until tender, about 30 minutes. Remove chops from skillet, leaving juices, and place on a platter to keep warm.

Mash the anchovy fillets together with 2 teaspoons butter, and 1/2 teaspoon flour. Whisk this paste into the simmering liquid to thicken. Cook and stir until the liquid has thickened and the flour is no longer grainy, 3 to 4 minutes. Pour sauce over pork chops to serve.
