  1. 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.
  2. 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.

good recipe! i used pork steaks and balsamic vinegar since its what i had. were really easy and simple to make. i served these with rice.

The flavor was not that good and my chops came out dry; I'm wondering if it could have been because my chops were thicker than 1/4". I also used anchovy paste but I couldn't really taste it; ...

Amazing flavor for such a simple recipe. I used anchovy paste instead of the filets and butter and still got amazing results. This one will become a regular!

Love this dish! It has the 'tang' of pork chops and sauerkraut (which I LOVE) but gives me something different to make with the same basic flavor. I made one change...I used capers instead of ...

I guess I don't care for tangy gravy-sauces. I like vinegar, but not like this.

The flavor seemed a little bland to me. Next time I think I will try adding a few spices to it to suit my taste better.
