Course Main Course


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • pork chops (2 thick bone-in chops or 4 thin chops)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • ¼ c honey
  • ¼ c water
  • 2 tablespoon vinegar white, apple cider or rice wine vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper optional


  • Pour the vegetable oil in a large skillet and turn the burner on medium/high heat.
  • Season the pork chops with salt and pepper.
  • Once the skillet is hot, add the pork chops. Cook uncovered for 3 minutes on each side to sear the outsides of the chops; remove the chops from the pan and set aside.
  • Turn the burner down to low/medium heat.
  • To the skillet, add the butter and garlic. Let the garlic cook for about a minute.
  • Next, stir in the honey, water, vinegar and pepper. Let cook for a few minutes or until the sauce begins to thicken.
  • Add the chops back to the pan and cook for 5-10 minutes, basting frequently with the sauce. The pork chops are done when they register an internal temperature of 145°F. Let rest for 3 minutes before slicing.
  • Thinly slice the chops and serve over a bed of rice; drizzle the remaining sauce over the pork.
  • Garnish with parsley and additional crushed red pepper, if desired.
