Original recipe yields 6 pork chops



  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.

This is very similar to a recipe I use - only additions are I add a small mashed clove of garlic, a cup of chicken stock and finely sliced onions and peppers to sauce before adding roux. It is amazing - my husband is the pickiest eater ever and not only does he not suspect anchovies - he loves this recipe!



Outstanding. I love vinegar, but even my husband (who does not like it as much as me because he had to clean with it as a child!) loved this dish. The vinegar is not too overpowering - just very mellow. The anchovy roux is delicious - and I've never considered myself a fan of them. I was really surprised by how much we liked this dish. Can't say enough about it. A must try for everyone who comes across it!



Loved this dish! I'm a huge vinegar fan, so i tried this receipe as soon as i found it. So glad I did! Simple to prepare & delicious. The pork was tender & so flavorful. Loved the vinegar/anchovy combination. Doubled the sauce and sprinkled the tiniest bit of sugar in it at the end. Other than that, wouldn't change a thing. Reminder - this is a white wine vinegar sauce (not sweet like a balsamic sauce), so a little goes a long way. You might want to serve it on the side. Thanks so much for posting :)!
