This Honey Garlic Pork Chops Recipe is so simple you won’t believe it when you see how quickly it comes together! This dish requires no marinating and is a rapid and tasty way to serve bone-in or boneless pork chops – seared till golden, then simmered and broiled (or grilled) in the most fantastic honey garlic sauce!

4 bone-in or bone-out pork chops
Season with salt and pepper.
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tbsp of olive oil
1 tbsp. unsalted butter
6 minced garlic cloves
1 tablespoon honey
A quarter cup of water (or chicken broth)
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar (or apple cider vinegar or any other white vinegar)
Preheat the oven broiler (or grill) to medium-high. Season the chops with salt, pepper, and garlic powder before cooking.
Warm the oil in a pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the chops on both sides until brown and done (approximately 4-5 minutes per side). Place on a platter and put away.
Turn the heat down to medium. In the same pan, melt the butter, scraping away any browned bits from the bottom. Sauté garlic for 30 seconds or until aromatic. Combine the honey, water, and vinegar in a mixing bowl. Increase the heat to medium-high and continue to cook, stirring periodically, until the sauce reduces and thickens slightly (approximately 3-4 minutes).
Return the pork to the skillet and baste lavishly with the sauce for 1-2 minutes, or until the edges are slightly browned.
Serve garnished with parsley over vegetables, rice, pasta, or with a salad.
