We here are not such big fans of Pork Chops, but I like to buy them, so we do not always eat Chicken.. I am always looking for different ways to cook them to make them more appealing.. Most times they get thrown on the BBQ with some sauce and that is that.. While I was surfing Pintrest I came across this recipe from the blog ROCK RECIPES, and well it was so tasty I will share it with you.. I served it with a simple mac and cheese with added spinach..
~ Double Crunch Honey Garlic Pork Chops~
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
Make an egg wash by whisking together:
4 tbsp 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.
~Honey Garlic Sauce
In a medium saucepan add
2 tbsp olive oil
3 – 4 cloves minced garlic
Cook over medium heat to soften the garlic but do not let it brown. Add:
1 cup honey
¼ cup soya sauce
1 tsp 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.
This will become a regular in my Kitchen 🙂
