Agrodolce (agro: sour; dolce: sweet), a traditional Italian sweet-and-sour sauce made with vinegar and sugar (or sweet ingredients such as fresh peaches and raisins), adds fresh summer flavor to the granddaddy of all pork chops. Thick-cut pork porterhouse includes a juicy portion of the tenderloin on one side and a large cut of the loin on the other.
