  • 3 teaspoons fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, divided
  • 2 teaspoons molasses
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 pound boneless pork chops
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon chives
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

Preheat grill or broiler.

Whisk together orange juice, chipotle pepper, 1 tablespoon vinegar, molasses and mustard in a small bowl.

Lightly oil the grill or broiler rack. Season pork with salt and pepper. Grill or broil for 2 minutes. Turn, brush with the glaze and cook for 4 minutes, brushing occasionally with glaze. Turn again, brush with the glaze, and cook until the center is no longer pink, 1 to 2 minutes longer.

Mix oil and remaining balsamic together with salt and pepper. Pour over tomato slices; garnish with chives. Serve with pork chops.
