Pork Chops with Honey-Garlic Sauce

The sauce on these honey garlic pork chops is so good, I sometimes double it so there's extra for dipping whatever veggie we have on the side. —Michelle Smith, Eldersburg, Maryland

    Very moist pork chops! Everyone liked the sauce, even my most picky eater. I didn't have reduced sodium soy sauce so it was a little salty.

    We liked this recipe. I was skeptical because I don't like honey at all, but I was surprised with the taste of the sauce.

    This is a hit every time I make it! I follow the recipe exactly, with rave reviews every time. My 7-year old regularly requests these flavorful chops.

    Very tasty and very easy to make! The porkchops I used were much too thick, so I had to cook them longer, resulting in more yummies left in the pan once the chops were removed. In order to cut down on cleanup, I made the sauce right in the pan. Forgot to add soy sauce and garlic, but the sauce was quite delicious without it. Next time around, I will definitely use thinner chops. All in all, a great recipe that's a true keeper!

    Easy and delicious. Used bone in thin cut chops and browned for about 3 minutes per side. Fully cooked and juicy. I also salt and peppered the chops before cooking.
