     I made this pork with pork chops instead of a pork loin, cut into pieces.  The balsamic vinegar reduction had a great flavor when the Dijon, shallots, and garlic were added into it.  The vinegar thickened up, had a slightly sweet taste, and was flavored with the herbs.  It was great over wild rice.
