Honey-Garlic Pork Chops
4 pork chops bone in or out
Salt and pepper, to season
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tbs olive oil
1 tbs unsalted butter
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup water, or chicken broth
2 tbs rice wine vinegar (or apple cider vinegar, or any white vinegar)
Preheat oven broiler (or grill) on medium-high heat. Season chops with salt, pepper and garlic powder, Set aside.
Heat oil in a pan or skillet over medium high heat. Sear chops on both sides until golden and cooked through, about 4-5 mi each side. Transfer to a plate. Set aside.
Melt butter in the same pan, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Sauté garlic until fragrant, about 30 sec. Add the honey, water and vinegar. Increase heat to medium-high and continue to cook until the sauce reduces down and thickens slightly, about 3-4 min, while stirring occasionally.
Add pork back into the pan, baste generously with the sauce and broil/grill for 1-2 min, or until edges are slightly charred.
Garnish with parsley and serve over vegetables, rice, pasta or with a salad. Serves 4
