Double Crunch Honey Garlic Pork Chops

A couple weeks ago I picked out recipes from Pinterest to try for the next month and this was one of the choices I made. I'm telling you, these pork chops are great, but the Honey Garlic sauce? It's THE best. There's a local restaurant that my husband and I love to go to that makes the best honey garlic sauce I've ever had. This sauce is almost identical to the restaurants and will become a regular, whether I end up making the pork chops again or not.

So without further adieu, there they are!

6 center loin pork chops, well trimmed
1 cup flour
2 tsp salt
2 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 tbsp ground ginger
1 tbsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground thyme
1 tsp ground sage
1 tbsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
2 eggs
4 tbsp water

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

Sift together flour, salt, pepper, ginger, nutmeg, thyme, sage, paprika, and cayenne.

Whisk 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 about a half inch of canola 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. Serve with noodles or rice.

Sauce: In a medium saucepan add oil and garlic. Cook over medium heat to soften the garlic but do not let it brown.

Add the rest of the ingredients. 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.

Like I said before, the sauce is amazing and will definitely become a regular, possibly my go-to. I hope you enjoy this find too!

Until next time! :)
