I found the recipe for these honey garlic pork chops on an old newspaper clipping in a recipe box I’ve had for years, and decided to make them for a simple dinner. The recipe itself is incredibly simple… marinate the pork, then grill or broil it until done. Easy, right?

The pork is at its very best in flavor when it has had a chance to marinate for at least 4 hours.  My suggestion is to mix up marinade early in the day (or even the night before), drop in the pork chops and let them refrigerate all day, for best flavor!

Prepare The Pork Chops

Start with 1½ inch thick boneless pork chops. Trim off some of the extra fat around edges, if necessary.

Fat is trimmed off boneless pork chops before cooking.

Make The Honey Garlic Marinade

In a small bowl, mix together the lemon juice, honey, soy sauce, sherry and minced garlic. Stir well, to combine. This is the marinade.

Marinade for honey garlic pork chops is mixed in bowl.

Place the pork chops in a large gallon sized re-sealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the chops. Seal bag, then turn to coat chops with the marinade on all sides.

Place the sealed bag on a plate (I do this in case the bag leaks), then place in refrigerator for at least 4-24 hours.  Occasionally turn the bag over to fully coat each side.

Pork chops are marinated in honey garlic sauce before cooking.

When ready to cook, preheat oven broiler (or outside BBQ grill).  If using broiler (as I did this time), place a piece of aluminum foil or parchment paper on a 9×13 cookie sheet. Spray a wire rack (oven safe) with non-stick cooking spray. Place the pork chops on the rack (by doing these steps, it will make your cleanup a lot easier). Save the marinade left in bag.

Cooking The Honey Garlic Pork Chops

Cook under broiler or on grill for 12-15 minutes. Turn the chops at least once, and baste occasionally with the remaining marinade while the chops are cooking. Cook the pork chops until they reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees. Do not overcook, as this will dry out the chops.  When done, discard the remaining marinade.

Marinated pork chops are placed on wire rack to broil.

Remove the cooked honey garlic pork chops from wire rack and serve.  I served them with Toasted Orzo with Lemon and Chives, and a simple green salad. My husband and I really enjoyed this meal (and it was soooo easy to make!).

Honey garlic pork chops served with salad and toasted orzo side dish.

I hope you will have the opportunity to give this easy and delicious pork recipe a try.  You certainly will appreciate that you won’t have to put in a lot of effort or time in order to have some yummy pork chops for dinner!
