Crunchy Honey Soy-Glazed Pork Chop

Crunchy Honey Soy-Glazed Pork Chop
Serves: 4

Everyone knows how to make a breaded and fried pork chop, this is nothing new to me, I make pork chops occasionally, the interesting thing about this recipe is the sauce/glaze that the fried pork chop is coated in after cooking. I found the idea on Pinterest and adjusted the glaze to suit my own tastes.


4 Boneless Pork Sirloin Chops
Buttermilk for breading


1 cup flour
2 tsp salt
2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tbsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper


Toss pork chop flour and spices mixture, then in buttermilk, and then in flour mixture again

Heat a skillet on the stove with about a half inch of olive oil covering the bottom. You will want to  regulate the temperature here so that the chops do not brown too quickly on the outside before they are fully cooked on the inside. I find just below medium heat works well. Fry them gently for about 4 or 5 minutes per side until golden brown and crispy. I placed mine in a warm oven on a rack (200 degrees) after frying to keep them warm and crispy.

 When you are finished cooking all the chops, dip the cooked chops into the Honey Soy Sauce (recipe below).

Honey Garlic Sauce:

2-3 whole smashed garlic cloves
1 cup honey
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Simmer together for 5-10 minutes,  watching carefully as it simmers because it can foam up over the pot and create a huge mess.

The sauce will thicken as it cools, so make sure that you are using warm sauce to coat easily.

Serve with your favorite sides, it is sweet, salty and a bit spicy, but mostly, it is delicious!
