Bacon Wrapped Pork Chops are tossed in a balsamic herb marinade, then wrapped in a bacon weave for a delicious & impressive dinner recipe that is so easy to make!
A few weeks back, Mike Filbey, co-founder of ButcherBox, reached out to me about sharing a link to my Beef Ragu recipe with his e-mail subscribers.
Of course I was excited that he wanted to share the recipe, but as I looked into ButcherBox, I was equally as excited about his company!
At ButcherBox, they find the best 100% grass-fed beef, organic chicken and Heritage Breed pork in America and deliver it directly to your doorstep each month.
Growing up in Oklahoma, we had a “meat man” that would deliver beef to our house each week, so the idea of ButcherBox really rang true to my Oklahoma upbringing.
I received my first box two weeks ago and was instantly hooked. I choose the Beef & Pork Box, which featured 4 – 6 oz boneless pork chops, 4 – 5 oz top sirloin steaks, 4 – 8 oz beef boneless short ribs, 2 lbs ground beef & of course, I added the bacon, because, yum, bacon! ButcherBox also offers an all Beef Box, a Mixed Box and a Beef & Chicken Box.
I decided to immediately put the pork chops & bacon I received in the box to use in this recipe for Bacon Wrapped Pork Chops!
My obsession with bacon wrapped meats started with the Bacon Wrapped Turkey Breast I created for Thanksgiving two years ago and has since moved to Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf and now Bacon Wrapped Pork Chops!
The balsamic herb marinade gives a great flavor to the tender and juicy pork chops, while the bacon weave adds a salty and crispy exterior to the dish. Overall, it’s #porkonpork deliciousness!
- 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 4 sprigs fresh rosemary (stems removed & chopped)
- 4 sprigs fresh thyme (stems removed & chopped)
- 2 tbsp steak seasoning
- 6 cloves garlic (crushed)
- 2 (8 oz) boneless pork chops
- 8 slices bacon (sliced in half)
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Whisk the balsamic vinegar & olive oil together in a small bowl. Mix in the rosemary, thyme, steak seasoning & garlic.
Add this mixture to a plastic bag with the pork chops and toss to coat.
Place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
In the meantime, weave 4 bacon slices together (8 halves of bacon), then weave the other 4 bacon slices together.
Place a pork chop in the center of each bacon weave.
Wrap the weave around the bacon.
Place the bacon wrapped pork chops on top of a wire rack on a foil-lined baking sheet.
Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
