Ginger Pork Chops

A pleasant combination of honey, soy sauce and ginger glazes these tender pork chops and makes them seem special. Serve with buttered green beans and instant mashed potatoes as shown in the photo above right. Or complete the meal with peas and scalloped potatoes from a boxed mix.

    Fantastic flavors! My husband is not usually a big fan of sweet/savory combos, but he was very impressed with the balance of those elements in this dish as well as the slight heat from the ginger. I made this with four 1/2" cut boneless pork chops and doubled the sauce recipe, though I only used half of the recommended amount of soy sauce. We served the extra sauce over rice.

    My husband has me make just the sauce at times when he wants it over rice, its become a comfort food for him. My son asked for these chops for dinner tonight and I will have to triple the sauce!!!!

    I found this to be very good the way it is but made 3 chops and the amount was just right.

    These are delicious but you will want to modify the sauce to fit your own tastes. 2 TBLSP soy sauce is way, way too much and you don't need a whole 1/4 cup of honey. I used 1 tblsp soy sauce, 2 tblsp honey, the ginger and a little water, about 1/4 cup. Instead of broiling the chops I cooked them on top of the stove for 5 minutes on each side, removed them from the pan while I made the sauce and then added them back in to heat up with the sauce. I thought they were really good.
