Basting these pork chops with a mixture made from honey, garlic, soy sauce and ginger ensures they stay moist. Make sure to use a skillet that's at least 12 inches wide for this elegant and speedy main course. These easy honey-garlic pork chops will fit in the skillet like puzzle pieces.

  • 4 bone-in, 3/4-inch-thick pork chops, trimmed (1 3/4 pounds)

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 tablespoon avocado or grapeseed oil

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon mirin

  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Sprinkle pork chops with pepper. Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chops and cook, turning once, until beginning to brown on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes total. Remove from heat.

  3. Stir honey, soy sauce, mirin, ginger and garlic together in a small bowl. Baste the chops liberally with the sauce and transfer the skillet to the oven.

  4. Roast, turning and liberally basting once, until the chops are barely pink in the middle and an instant-read thermometer registers 145°F, 6 to 10 minutes total.

  5. Serve topped with any remaining glaze from the pan.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
