Spiced Pork Chops with Honey Balsamic Glaze

Just like T-Pain, I'm in love with a Skillet.  I got mine recently and all I want to do is cook everything on it (and spoon hot oil over meat like I'm competing on Iron Chef). I wanted to make my typical garlic and rosemary pork chops, but the gf found a recipe that will definitely go to the top of the queue the next time we host a dinner party.  Once you try the glaze, you'll want to spoon it over everything (just like T-Pain).  


Pork Chops
1/4 cup - Olive Oil
4 - 8oz Boneless Pork Chops
Kosher Salt
Freshly Ground Pepper
1/2 tsp - Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

1/2 cup - Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 cup - Honey
2 cloves - Garlic (minced)
1/2 - Yellow Onion (minced)
1 tsp - Rosemary (chopped)
1/2 stick - Unsalted Butter (divided and at room temperature)
Kosher salt 
Freshly Ground Pepper

1) In a skillet, heat the olive oil over high heat.
2) Season the pork chops with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
3) Add the pork to the pan and cook until brown on both sides (spoon the hot oil over the meat and pick it up with tongs to cook the sides).
4) In a small saucepan, bring the vinegar, honey, garlic, onions, and rosemary to boil over medium-high heat.
5) Stir occasionally until the honey has dissolved and simmer for 9 minutes.
6) Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the butter.
7) Season with salt and pepper and drizzle the glaze over the pork chops.
