  • 4 pork chops bone-in or boneless, thick-cut
  • salt and pepper to season
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon butter (or olive oil to make this recipe dairy free)

For the Honey Garlic Sauce


  • Season both sides of the pork chops with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large pan set over medium high heat. Add the pork chops. Sear each side until golden brown and cooked through, approximately 4-5 minutes on each side. Transfer to a clean plate and set aside.
  • Return the pan to medium heat. Add and melt the butter and scrape up any brown bits stuck to the bottom of the pan. Stir in the minced garlic. Cook for about 30 seconds, or until fragrant, then add the honey, ketchup, water, soy sauce, and apple cider vinegar. Whisk the sauce as it comes to a simmer, about 2 minutes.
  • Return the pork back to the pan, baste with the sauce and continue to cook until everything is heated through.
  • Serve garnished with fresh chives, green onions, or parsley, if desired.
