Do you ever have those periods of time where you’ve got a lot of pent-up energy, excitement, and a dash of anxiety all at once? You can barely focus on work, let alone have the patience to make a good meal? That was the position I was in for a period of time.

 

As I anxiously waited for my first granddaughter to make her grand appearance into the world, I wanted to be available at any minute so I could welcome this precious addition to my family into the world.  That being said, I was only making meals that required little preparation and cooking time, and now I’m sharing it because who doesn’t love a delicious weeknight dinner that doesn’t make you slave in the kitchen after a full day of work.

 

Pork Chops with Honey Glaze – Oven Baked

 

PORK is such versatile meat. There are endless flavor combinations that you can (successfully) experiment with it.  It’s actually the most widely consumed meat, making up about 36% of meat consumption in the world. Make sure that you choose your pork wisely and to your taste! The leanest part is the pork tenderloin, which is almost as lean as a skinless chicken breast- for the health conscious. I recommend getting chops that are at least an inch thick for this recipe, no matter what kind of cut you prefer.

 

If you love a little sweet with your savory, then this baked pork chop recipe with honey glaze is certainly for you. The mix of soy sauce, honey, Worcestershire sauce, ginger, and garlic salt create a drool-worthy combination and a beautiful, golden glaze. It’s always a nice treat when something that tastes this divine can be so simple to make. Not to be dramatic, but this is probably the best pork chop recipe I have ever made.

 

Cooking the globe doesn’t mean excluding the food from your own country. The food you grew up eating is always the best and, in most cases, means comfort. It also means that you can tweak it a bit and get completely new flavors, inspired by other cuisines. Bosnian cuisine doesn’t combine sweet with savory and it was first when we moved to Germany that I tried pork chops with honey and ventured out to add peaches and pineapple. It was this weird feeling of satisfying your sweet tooth by eating pork, but I learned to love it.

Pork chops are so juicy to begin with, and they devour this honey glaze once you pour it on top of them.  I prefer to cook my pork chops like a steak- sear each side and then let them bake in the oven. After their time in the oven, they come out with a perfect, golden-crusted skin and a mouth-watering center. Speaking of the center, The National Pork Board recommends cooking pork to an internal temperature of at least 145 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

While they’re in the oven, you can take advantage of your time and prepare your sides. I suggest Jasmine rice and sugar snap peas- actually, I HIGHLY recommend the trio. I would generally keep the rice on the plain side, but I have the best game plan for the sugar snap peas. One of the best things about making this pork chop recipe is the drippings left behind from the chops. If you’re thinking what I’m thinking, you know that these sugar snap peas are about to be bathed in the most delicious vat of flavor.

 

If I have you drooling a little bit, then I guess it’s time for us to get started on these!

    My friend you have to stop doing this to me. Every single time I pop around for a visit, I’m drooling all over my laptop. I just can’t cope. This sounds so incredibly yummy. Pork and honey were meant to be together. Hubby is going to braai tonight and if I have anything to do with it, then this is going on the fire.

    Jas, This looks so delicious! I make something similar with honey and soy sauce for salmon and why I never thought to put it on pork chips is beyond me. I’ll be making this next time I bake pork chops.
