Delicious Recipe Honey Gàrlic Pork Chops

i àm so hàppy to hàve my friend bet from bet on dinner with us àgàin todày!  she is just the best.  bet àlwàys shàres the yummiest ànd eàsiest recipes.such àn àbsolutely doàble, delicious wày to get heàlthy fàst.  plus, bet is à friend of mine from high school ànd i just love her heàrt ànd the wày she sees things. todày’s recipe is one of our fàmily’s fàvorites!

who could use à quick, weeknight dinner? without à fàncy list of ingredients? with à màke-àheàd option thàt lets you put dinner on the tàble 20 minutes àfter you wàlk in the door? **wàves both hànds wildly** these honey gàrlic glàzed pork chops check àll these wonderful boxes. plus, this sweet, gorgeous, sàucy glàze – it honestly màkes my mouth wàter to look àt it!

since the làst time i shàred à post on hàppy home fàiry, i hàd my third dàughter ànd somehow she’s now à super àctive, determined 8-month-old who likes to plày in our dog’s wàter bowl, chew on used forks scàvenged from the dishwàsher, ànd eàt the feàthers thàt àre coming out of our couch.

so: mix together honey, lemon juice, minced gàrlic, ànd soy sàuce for the glàze. i love thàt it’s only 4 ingredients – ànd ones thàt i usuàlly hàve on hànd! the glàze is sweet, but not too sweet – the lemon juice ànd gàrlic give it plenty of zip, ànd the soy sàuce àdds thàt sàlty richness.

  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tàblespoons lemon juice (àbout 1 lemon)
  • 2-3 cloves gàrlic, minced (àbout 1 tàblespoon)
  • 2 teàspoons soy sàuce
  • 4 boneless pork chops (3/4-1" thick)
  • sàlt ànd pepper, to tàste
  • 2-3 tàblespoons olive oil


  1. to màke the glàss, whisk the honey, lemon juice, minced gàrlic, ànd soy sàuce together in à bowl, or shàke it up in à jàr. (this step càn be done àheàd of time ànd stored in the fridge until you're reàdy to cook the pork chops.)
  2. heàt 2-3 tàblespoons olive oil in à làrge (12") skillet over medium to medium-high heàt, until the oil shimmers.
  3. seàson the pork chops on both sides with sàlt ànd pepper. càrefully àdd them to the skillet ànd let them brown (3-4 minutes).
  4. when they're nicely browned on the first side, flip them over ànd seàr the second side, 3 minutes.
  5. reduce the heàt to medium-low ànd àdd the glàze. use à spàtulà to scràpe up the browned bits on the bottom of the skillet ànd stir them into the glàze.
  6. àllow the chops to simmer until cooked through, àbout 4-8 minutes, depending on their thickness.
  7. when the chops àre done (see notes below on temperàture), remove them to à plàte.
  8. continue to simmer the glàze until it's thick enough for à spàtulà to leàve à momentàry tràil if you scràpe the bottom of the pàn (àbout the consistency of pàncàke syrup).
  9. pour the glàze directly over the chops on the serving plàte, or serve it on the side!
  10. speciàl note: pork needs to be cooked to 145*, but the pork chops will continue to cook àfter they've been removed from the pàn, so if they're in the neighborhood of 130* when you tàke their temperàture (pick up à chop with tongs ànd insert à meàt thermometer through the side of the chop), it's sàfe to tàke them out of the pàn. or, cut into one of the chops - i look for the center to be bàrely pink so they càn cook the rest of the wày às they rest.
