Kitchen Quickie - How to make black pepper balsamic strawberries

July 4, 2020

Welcome to my new podcast on Podbean! I'm hoping to share quickies like this first video and longer form episodes for bigger dishes in this new format.

I love this sauce and strawberries are just beautiful this time of year. The sauce comes together quickly and is very versatile - - it can be used on desserts like icecream, breakfasts like oatmeal or granola - or as a sauce for an entree like halibut or pork chops. It's one of my favorite summertime recipes.

Ingredients

  • 10 ripe strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon coarse ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. warm the pan on medium high heat - add the olive oil
  2. saute the strawberries for five minutes in the olive oil, then add the sugar - cooking two more minutes, until strawberries begin to soften
  3. add balsamic vinegar and turn the heat down to medium until vinegar mixture reduces by half into a thick syrup
  4. add orange juice - stir to combine and remove from heat. 
  5. Serve immediately
