Honey Garlic Pork Chops

This Honey Garlic Pork Chops Recipe is super easy to make and you won’t need a long list of fancy ingredients. I’m sure you have a couple of these in your pantry. No marinating needed, which is also a win because its saves so much time!  

The key to developing great flavor is browning the meat on both sides, so while the pork is cooking leave it be and do not touch them for the first couple of minutes. Once seared on both sides, turn the heat down a bit and pour in the glaze. Be sure to scrape the browned bits on the bottom of the pan while the sauce is cooking.

QUICK TIPS: 

  • Melt butter in the same pan that the pork chops were seared in to keep those flavours going into the sauce.
  • Cook the sauce until it reduces down and thickens slightly for about 3-4 minutes. Be sure not to cook for too long or the honey will reduce down completely, leaving you with a dry sticky pan. 
  • Baste the pork chop generously with the honey garlic sauce.

    Your pork chops sound delicious but your instructions are confusing. #1 and #4 are the same. Do you brown the chops, take them out of the pan and then make the sauce in the same pan and put the chops back in? I’d like to try this recipe if your instructions could be clearer.
