For some strange reason, throughout my life, I have really avoided pork chops UNTIL NOW. Don made these last night and Boy oh Boy are they fabulous. True.
- 4 boneless pork chops
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. black pepper
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. If not using a frypan that can go into the oven, grease a 9″ x 13″ baking dish.
Season the chops with the salt, pepper and garlic powder. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Brown pork chops 3 to 4 minutes each side and transfer to the prepared pan.
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/8 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/8 cup soy sauce
- 1 tsp. chopped garlic
- 1 tbsp. butter
- 1/8 tsp. ground ginger
- dash cayenne pepper (or more to taste)
Whisk the honey, brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic and butter together in a bowl and pour over the chops.
Bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest for approximately 5 minutes to allow the chops to soak up some of the sauce.
Add a 1/4 tsp. corn starch mixed in a 1/4 cup of water to the remaining sauce and stir until it thickens.
Serve the chops with a stir-fry vegetable side dish and add the extra sauce.
