HONEY GARLIC PORK CHOPS INGREDIENTS

You’ll need:

  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • ¼ of cayenne pepper
  • Fresh chopped parsley for garnish

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

BROTH: You could also use vegetable, bone, or beef broth for this easy recipe. Any brand of broth will work, you could even make your own! You can also use regular or low-sodium broth.

BONE-IN PORK CHOPS: If you have bone-in chops, you can either remove the bone by cutting it out or adjust the cook time, adding an extra few minutes. Use a meat thermometer to make sure the temperature is at least 155°F near the bone.

HONEY: For a slightly different sweetness for your sticky honey garlic sauce, try substituting the honey with maple syrup.

HOW TO MAKE THIS HONEY GARLIC PORK CHOPS RECIPE

STEP ONE: In a small bowl combine salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Whisk together. Season pork chops on both sides with the entire mixture.

STEP TWO: In a medium mixing bowl, combine honey, chicken broth, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, and cayenne pepper. Whisk together and set aside.

STEP THREE: In a non-stick large skillet over medium heat, add olive oil and butter. Add boneless chops in a single layer and sear until browned. Flip the pork chops over and sear the other side of the chops.

PRO TIP:

Searing will lock in all the juiciness of the meat, so make sure not to skip this step.

STEP FOUR: Once both sides are seared, add the garlic to the pan and let cook for 30 to 45 seconds. Add honey mixture to the skillet and move pork chops around in the pan to coat in sauce on both sides.

STEP FIVE: Let the sauce simmer until it reduces and turns a nice amber color. This takes about 15 minutes. Turn pork chops over every 5 minutes while the sauce is cooking. 

PRO TIP:

It takes 15 to 20 minutes for the sauce to reduce. Give it time and let it simmer until it is just about done. Then turn up the heat to finish it. 

STEP SIX: When the pork chops reach about 155°F degrees when tested with a meat thermometer, then turn up the temperature of the burner to medium heat and bring the sauce to a fast rolling boil until it finishes reducing and is thicker. 

PRO TIP:

The cooking time for your pork chops will vary depending on how thick they are. Use a meat thermometer to check that they are cooked through.

STEP SEVEN: Drizzle any extra sauce from the pan and garnish the pork chops with fresh parsley and serve.
