Honey Garlic Pork Chops

School started the last two days in most areas of Michigan and New York. I am watching my friends post back-to-school pictures and hoping everyone has a great day.

I forget how tired we all are during the first week of school. I had planned on these big fancy dinners to celebrate and when the time came to make dinner I just didn’t have the energy. Now is when we really need these simple meals for the first few weeks of back-to-school.


This was such a simple dinner to make that it made me very happy. The kids happily ate it and we all sat around the table and talked. It was wonderful! I added buttered egg noodles with garlic and some brown beans to complete the meal. This is a recipe that is going back in our rotation.

Honey Garlic Pork Chops

  • Servings: 6 pork chops
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

A simple meal for nights when a quick meal is needed.


  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 5 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced finely
  • 6 pork chops, bone-in
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl stir ketchup, honey, soy sauce, and garlic. Set aside.
  3. Heat a large oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat. Season pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides and set aside.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the skillet.
  5. When sizzling, add pork chops and brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. If needed, brown chops in batches so as not to overcrowd the pan.
  6. Return all chops to skillet (or a rimmed baking sheet) and brush both sides with ketchup-honey bake for 10-15 minutes until the chops are cooked through.
  7. Remove from the oven and spoon sauce over the top before serving.

    I bet that is nice as the sauce sounds very much like my ‘BBQ sauce’ which I pour over chicken legs and cook in the oven, while vegetables ( peppers, big mushrooms, courgettes etc ) roast in olive oil and garlic on the other shelf.

    I agree, the first week of school is exhausting, especially with the heat we’ve been having. Easy is the way to go!
