Maple Balsamic Baked Pork Chops Recipe

As the cost of meat has increased over the years, I’ve discovered pork tends to be a good choice instead of beef.  Many times pork chops are also less expensive than chicken, turkey or ham.

When friends are over, I don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen slaving over a hot stove. Since the meat is marinated before cooking, they are quick and easy to prepare.  I find I am able to spend less time prepping and cooking a meal in the kitchen and more time enjoying the company of family and friends.
