Honey & Soy Glazed Pork Chops
These honey soy glazed pork chops have been a dinner staple in our kitchen for years. They're so fast to make, I always have the sauce ingredients on hand, and it's all made in one pan. I like to serve this with rice or couscous to soak up the extra, yummy sauce.
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 4 boneless pork chops about 3/4" thick
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1 clove garlic minced
- salt & pepper
Sprinkle salt and pepper on each chop.
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chops and cook each side until brown and cooked through (I usually remove them when they are still just ever-so-slightly pink because they will continue to cook out of the pan--safe internal temperature for pork chops is 145 degrees.)
While the chops are cooking, combine honey, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and cornstarch in a bowl and stir until combined.
Transfer chops to a plate.
With heat still on medium, add minced garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring constantly, for about 30 seconds.
Add soy sauce mixture to the pan and let it cook, stirring frequently, for about a minute. It will boil and thicken.
Spoon sauce over chops and serve.
