Honey Garlic Pork Chops

Honey garlic pork chops have quickly become my family’s favorite way to eat pork chops! They’ve got just the right balance of sweet and savory flavors that really pack a punch and they always turn out deliciously tender. This is a tried and true weeknight dinner recipe that hasn’t failed me yet!

If you’re a fan of Asian flavors, this is the pork chop recipe for you. While honey and garlic are the two stars of the show, they’re accompanied by ingredients like soy sauce and hoisin sauce that really enhance the overall flavor palate. This pork chop recipe is anything but bland.

I’m also pretty obsessed with just how easy this recipe really is! The pork chops are seared in a skillet for just a few minutes. Then, the sauce is made in that very same skillet and it all gets baked together for just 10-15 minutes. It’s easy, quick and delicious – what more could you ask for?

Ingredient Notes

Here’s a quick breakdown of what you’ll need to make these Asian pork chops! For exact measurements, keep on scrolling down to the recipe card at the bottom of the page.

  • Pork Chops – For this recipe, you’ll need bone-in center cut pork chops.
  • Salt and Pepper – I really recommend using kosher salt (not iodized) and freshly cracked black pepper for the best flavor.
  • Olive Oil – You can swap this with avocado oil if you want.
  • Butter – I like to use unsalted butter. That way, I can add more salt if needed and better control the amount of sodium in the dish.
  • Garlic – This is a key ingredient! Because of that, make sure you’re using fresh garlic (not the jarred alternative) for the very best flavor.
  • Honey – You can always add more if you want the sauce to be on the sweeter side.
  • Chicken Stock – I love using homemade chicken stock whenever I can!
  • Rice Wine Vinegar – This creates a very subtle tangy flavor that brings it all together in the best way!
  • Hoisin Sauce – This sweet and salty sauce is the best at complimenting and balancing all of the other bold flavors in the mix.
  • Soy Sauce – I usually use low sodium soy sauce so it doesn’t end up too salty.
  • Sesame Seeds and Green Onions – The very best garnishes!

How to Make Honey Garlic Pork Chops

Take a quick peek at just how easy this pork chops recipe is! For more details on the entire process, keep on scrolling down to the recipe card at the bottom of the page.

  1. Prepare. Preheat the oven to 425°F. While that’s heating up, pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Sear the pork chops. You may need to work in batches! You don’t want to overcrowd the pan. Cook the pork chops just until golden brown on each side. Transfer the seared pork to a plate and drain off almost all of the remaining juices.
  3. Make the sauce. Add butter to the same skillet and cook the garlic in it for just a minute or so. Whisk in the remaining sauce ingredients and keep cooking until slightly thickened.
  4. Bake. Add the pork back to the skillet. Turn it to coat with the sauce. Bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the pork reads 140°F.
  5. Enjoy! Serve your honey garlic pork chops with some sesame seeds and green onions.
