Balsamic Pork Chops

My stepdaughter, 31 years old, has recently started dialysis due to IgA nephropathy finally rearing its ugly head. :( I have been using this site for kidney-friendly meals when she joins her mother and I for dinner. She loves pork, and it is a nice break from chicken for protein. She runs low of protein in her bloodwork, so it is very important. I love to cook! This recipe (and frankly, all of the ones I have tried here!) was a hit. It is very spice-full as are many of the ones on Davita. I use my cast iron skillet to cook in, so that my stepdaughter gets iron as well. I don't need to transfer to a different piece of bakeware, as I place the skillet in the oven to finish the cooking. This website is, in all seriousness, a 'life-saver'. Thank you to all for the hard work put into these recipes. ANYONE at the dinner table will love these! With all of the wonderful spices used, salt will not be missed. We love this recipe, and I will make it again and again.

My husband & I made this recipe the other nite - first one from this site. It was easy & we both enjoyed it. My husband just started dialysis this month so we were very pleased to find/make this delicious dish. Keep up the good work - we sincerely appreciate your efforts.

I have made this before and it's absolutely wonderful. I'm curious if it would work on a pork tenderloin?

Could I use canned mushrooms and lower the potassium a little bit? Or what other vegetable could I use? Dietitian comment: Yes that change will reduce potassium by 88 mg.

Since being sodium restricted I've been having a problem finding recipes that are flavorful enough without adding salt. This was extremely good. I never missed the salt at all.

Just starting sod restrictions and was dreading! This is great...the chops stayed moist a d the onions and mushrooms carmelized perfectly adding the most delicious taste to the pork. Just enough to coat the rice also! Thanks for having this site.
