Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate.

    Advertisement
  • Mix honey, soy sauce, crushed red pepper flakes, and black pepper in a bowl. Pour about 2 tablespoons of the honey-soy mixture into a small bowl and save for later. Brush chops with canola oil on both sides, and sprinkle with salt and black pepper.

  • Grill the chops on the hottest part of the grill until lightly charred and crusty, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Move the chops to a cooler area of the grill, and continue to cook, brushing both sides generously with the honey-soy glaze, until chops are no longer pink inside, about 3 to 4 more minutes. The juices should run clear, and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of a chop should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

  • While chops are grilling, brush slices of onion with oil, and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Grill onion slices until they are translucent and browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. To serve, place chops and onions on warmed plates, and brush the chops with the reserved honey-soy glaze.

Cook's Note

To make this kid-friendly, omit the crushed red pepper flakes.

I'm going to rate the base of this recipe as I never follow one to the letter. I did add 2 ingredients that made this completely over the top. I added 1 teaspoon of lime juice and 1 teaspoon of sesame oil and it made it fantastic. I think this is a great recipe for a BBQ beginner. Thanks for submitting it, we all enjoyed it here and my husband said I can definately make this one again. Read More

This was a great recipe! I do not have a grill, but we tryed this on the stovetop and it turned out amazing. I cook the chops on high to brown the outside and then turned down to simmer. This is when I added the glaze and let it cook for about 30mins. I turned it about 3 times total. I added seasme seeds for an added kick! I think this would also be great if you baked it! Read More

This was an AWESOME recipe! The only differences I did was instead of red pepper flakes I used Chili flakes and instead of the grill I baked them in the oven.... I basted them before I put them in the oven (375 for 45 mins) , 15 minutes before they were to come out and then again when I was ready to serve them. They turned out very juicy and fell apart! Even my picky eater of a brother liked them! I think next time I'll try it on chicken. Read More

AMAZING!!!! Even with the pinch of red pepper flakes. But I will say I had a ton of basting sauce left over if you have thin boneless pork chops or pork loin steaks this recipe could easily do 8-12 chops. I grilled my thick slices of onions up and basting those as I cooked....OhMyJebbers!!! FANSTATIC!!!! This will be a repeater recipe for sure. I am going to try agave next time in place of the honey and see if I get the same results!! TY TY TY!! Read More

Delicious and simple. I picked it because my husband loved sweet recipes. I was afraid it would be too sweet for me but we both loved it. My only thing is that you could 1/2 the recipe and still have enough. Ended up throwing a bunch of honey and soy sauce away... Read More
