Double Crunch Honey Garlic Pork Chops

These pork chops were absolutely amazing.  You could do this with chicken too, but you have to tenderize/flatten the meat first.  I would also suggest drizzling your child’s pork chops with honey rather than dipping in the spicy honey sauce.  My son doesn’t mind spicy, but my daughter refuses to eat anything hot 🙂  My husband really enjoyed this meal (even though it’s not beef) and we found the meat is even better as leftovers the next day because all the flavors and seasonings have really mixed well together.  I served with red mashed potatoes (mashed potatoes made w/red potatoes, skin left on).

Ingredients for Pork Chops (see ingredients for sauce after instructions for pork chops):

6 center loin pork chops, well trimmed
1 cup flour
2 tsp salt
2 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp ground ginger
1/2 tbsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground thyme
1 tsp ground sage
1 tbsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper  (use less if you don’t like it hot)
2 eggs
4 tbsp water


Sift together everything but eggs, water and meat.  Make an egg was by whisking together eggs and water. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper, then dip the chops in the flour and spice mixture. Dip the chop into the eggwash and then a final time into the flour and spice mix, pressing the mix into the chop to get good contact. Heat a skillet on the stove with olive oil or other oil, covering the bottom. You will want to carefully regulate the temperature here so that the chops do not brown too quickly on the outside before they are fully cooked on the inside. I find just below medium heat works well. I use a burner setting of about 4 1/2 out of 10 on the dial and fry them gently for about 4 or 5 minutes per side until golden brown and crispy. Drain on a wire rack for a couple of minutes before dipping the cooked chops into the Honey Garlic Sauce (below).

Honey Garlic Sauce


2 tbsp olive oil
3 – 4 cloves minced garlic
1 cup honey
¼ cup soy sauce
1 tsp ground black pepper

In medium saucepan add oil & garlic. Cook over medium heat to soften the garlic but do not let it brown. Add: honey, soy sauce, ground black pepper. Simmer together for 5-10 minutes, remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes. Watch this carefully as it simmers because it can foam up over the pot very easily.

Happy Eating Friends! ~Trina
