Pin this recipe for later, I promise you won’t regret it!

 

These juicy pork chops are super easy to make with just a handful of ingredients and yield the perfectly juicy meat on the inside with sweet and savory golden glaze on the outside.

 

This flavorful meal requires little preparation and cooking time. I mean, who doesn’t love a delicious weeknight dinner that doesn’t make you slave in the kitchen after a full day of work, amirite? 

 

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.

Cuisine Around the World

 

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 my first when we moved to Germany. 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.

HOW TO SERVE OVEN BAKED PORK CHOPS:

 

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 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 (I use this meat thermometer)

 

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!

Pro Tips / Recipe Notes:

 

  • When cooking in a cast-iron skillet, it’s always a good idea to heat the skillet first, then add oil and other ingredients. It performs best when heated and cooled gradually. 
  • Once you put the meat in the skillet, don’t fuss with it. It needs a couple of minutes to properly sear and lock in all that yummy flavor. Turn it only when it gets a white border all around, about 1/4 to 1/2 – inch wide. You can also shake the pan and if the meat is no longer sticking, it’s ready to be turned.
  • Brown pork chops in batches. If you’re making this recipe as a romantic dinner for two, halve the recipe. There’s also no need to transfer the chops into the baking pan. Move your cast-iron skillet from stovetop to the oven.

    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.

      Hi, Carlos (if that’s your name)!
      Well, that wasn’t very nice of you to say. How would you feel if I’d say: someone’s getting paid for being negative Nancy? But, I won’t say that and instead, I’ll give you a couple of suggestions (because I’m a nice person who likes to help and uplift others):
      1. To get straight to the point (as you put it) there is a button right at the top of the post that lets you skip to the recipe, called SKIP TO RECIPE. Have you missed it?
      2. If you are a seasoned cook (some of my readers are beginners) and don’t appreciate recipes with helpful tips and hints, you can go to allrecipes.com. I won’t be mad, I promise.
      I hope you have a lovely day!
      Best, Jas

Let's talk!
