Honey Garlic Pork Chops

Indulge in the sweet and sticky allure of honey garlic pork chops, ready to savor in just 20 minutes! Whether you favor boneless or bone-in pork chops, this recipe has you covered.


  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 pinch teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • In a small bowl, blend together minced garlic, honey, red wine vinegar, water, and cayenne pepper (if desired). If the honey is too thick, you can microwave the mixture for 15-30 seconds. Set it aside.
  • Heat olive oil in a cast-iron skillet or heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat. Generously season both sides of the pork chops with salt and pepper.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the pork chops to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes per side until they achieve a golden brown hue. After cooking, transfer the pork chops from the pan and set them aside.
  • Introduce butter to the pan, allowing it to melt. Use a spoon or spatula to scrape up any flavorful bits from the pan’s bottom.
  • Combine the garlic and honey mixture with the melted butter and pork juices in the pan. Continue cooking while stirring frequently with a spoon or spatula for 2-3 minutes until the sauce thickens. It’s ready when the spoon or spatula leaves a distinct trail behind it. (If the sauce sticks too much, add an extra tablespoon of water.)
  • Once the sauce has thickened, return the pork chops to the pan, ensuring they are thoroughly coated with the sauce.
  • These delectable pork chops can be served immediately or refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 4 days, or frozen for up to 3 months.
