Honeyed Pork Chops
This recipe has been enjoyed by our family for several years now. Between the honey, ginger, and the soy sauce you will find a delicious flavor.

We all LOVED LOVED LOVED this meal it was fantastic! Because I was feeling too lazy to chop the onion I THINLY sliced the onion and made a bed of it for the chops to lay on and poured the sauce over the top of it all.Once the chops were cooked I strained the drippings and made a sauce by making a roux with 1 T. butter and 1 T. flour then added the drippings. The onions were an added treat (if you don't mind cooked onions). So sweet and tender. Served with Japanese-Style Sesame Green Beans (also on this site), mandarin oranges and plain white rice. WOW. As another suggested, it would be great to mix some of the sauce in with the rice (rather than just piling it on top). SO SO SO Yummy.
This was GREAT! I made it for company tonight (which always makes me a little nervous, trying a new recipe with company coming) but it turned out exactly as I was hoping. The only change I made was to use half soy sauce and half teriyaki sauce instead of all the soy sauce that was called for. It was sweet but not too sweet, and the meat was so moist! It tasted like I had marinated it. I did only end up cooking it for about 40 minutes and it was completely done, even a little more dry than I would have preferred.
Very delicious! I just made these for dinner tonight. I did as other reviewers suggested and added more honey to the sauce. I went an extra mile and marinated the chops for three hours in honey, garlic salt, and manderain juice. Cooked it covered half the time, flipped them, and then uncovered it for the final ten to fifteen minutes of baking. The frying part in the recipe DOES help so DO NOT SKIP that part. I served the chops with garlic red potatoes and salad with homemade dressing. Fantastic!!!
Yummy! Has a good sweet taste. I will surely use this recipe again. I did cut the recipe in half,it would have been way to much for my husband and I. I also flipped the pork chops half way through cooking to get both sides cooked in the sauce. I think it would be even better if it was marinated over night.
This was a fabulous recipe. I did add worchestshire sauce and green/red peppers to the sauce. Everyone love it. I plan to try it with pork tenderloin next time.
Thank you! This was really simple and very tasty. I didn't pan sear the pork chops first and they turned out very well. I would suggest using very little water, if any. The flavor is really wonderful, and my husband loved them, too. This is a keeper.
I thought this was fantastic and it smells so good when baking! I didn't change anything about the recipe except I only used 4 chops (well, tenerloin boneless chops) but kept the rest of the portions as written. I didn't really measure the honey (I'm sure it was about 3-4Tbs), either, but I wouldn't change a thing! I covered with foil for the first 30m, then took it off till the meat reached 160, which took about 40m more - my chops were about 1.5" thick. Delicious! Will be making again! Oh - I didn't brown in the pan first, but that's just b/c I didn't want to wash the additional pan.
First I had to scale this to 9 chops, but then followed exactly except I didn't have onion. My chops were on the thin side so I only baked for about 25 minutes. Definately a tasty dish, also I did flip halfway through to get both sides coated well w/ the sauce. Will make again, and I might add more honey so that flavor comes through better.
Sound recipe! However, try using a "bone-in" chop. The bone will add more flavor and tenderness. Pork can now be eaten a little less cooked these days due to science, sear the chop on high heat to get the crust, 3 minutes tops each side, then bake! Remove at 150 degrees and let rest, in about 5 minutes it will done!
I was disappointed in the thin consistency of the sauce, but this was very flavorful, moist and juicy. I take reviews with a grain of salt and often just blip right over the ones where the reviewer has made so many changes that the end product doesn't even resemble the recipe. In this case, though, I'm glad I took the advice to reduce the browning time to three minutes per side (plentyof time), double the honey (and then some), slice the onion and place the slices on the bottom of the baking dish, and reduce the cooking time. I turned and basted them after 20 minutes, and spooned the sliced onions on top. The chops registered 160 degrees after 40 minutes, and the onions were nicely caramelized. Everyone liked it and they want to have it again.
We thought it was great. Something different and will defiantly make it again. I made some little changes ...I added the juice from a fresh mandarin and twice the amount of honey to the sauce. Marinated the meat in the sauce for 1 1/2 hours. Put garlic powder on the chops before frying. I baked 3 chops for a little over a hour. My Husband said 5 stars for sure. It was not too sweet just a nice flavorful combination.
Also did this with chicken! In fact I have tossed chicken pieces in a freezer bag with the sauce and froze it. Popped it out of the freezer bag while still a block of Ice and put it in a baking dish. Set the oven to come on and bake it. Cooked rice when I got home.
WOW! Totally loved this recipe. I didn't really feel like pork chops though so I made something totally different. But it was great! I hate the reviewers on this site. Make your own recipe if you can do it differently and better.
mine really didnt turn out like id hoped... not like the picture :(
Super easy & delicious! I took the advice of other reviews & added about 1T more honey - yum!
These are great as is, but for an even more bold, fuller flavor, I replace the water with bourbon and they turn out absolutely great -- better then five stars. I cover the baking dish with foil and bake the pork chops for 30 minutes on one side. I then remove the foil, spoon some sauce over the chops, and bake uncovered for another 20-30 minutes (depending on the thickness of the chops), to an internal temperature of 160 degrees. Make sure not to over cook. I take a temperature reading when I turn the chops to get an idea of how much longer they should bake. Serve the chops with any extra sauce spooned over the top. Thicken the sauce with a little cornstarch and water if you want.
Had to wing it with this one because I didnt have the time. Put the oil in the pan, sauteed the onion for a few minutes then added the pork chops. Browned on each side then added the rest of the ingredients. Covered and simmered for 10 minutes on the stove. Removed the meat raised the heat and added a little corn starch. Meat was probably not as tender as the oven would have been but the family (all 5) loved it. Ready in 20 min.
This was such a delicious pork chop recipe!! I added some Garlic, the tiniest bit of Sweet Chili Sauce (like 1 Tbs or even less) And Red Bell Pepper. I also kept this originally suggested amount of sauce and used it for just our 2 pork chops.. After baking the pork chops in it, this left me a good amount of the delicious sweet sauce to pour over the rice. It made a delicious meal!
Good start... leave out the honey (too sweet), no water, no onion,no pepper, increase the oil to 1/2 cup, increase the ginger to 1 tsp., and add 1 tsp. garlic. Marinade all for at least 3 hours and grill, frying is soo unhealthy.
I thought these pork chops were great. However, I altered the recipe a bit. I added some grated garlic, teriyaki sauce and pineapple juice. About half way through, I added a pineapple to the top of each pork chop. I made this for friends, and they devoured them.
Oh my gosh! Thank you for making me the queen of pork chops tonight! I halfed the recipe, as we only had 3 pork chops, but I used all 3 tbsp of honey. The onion I minced really fine, and added to the sauce. I didn't even have to turn them over halfway through, just brushed some of the sauce back on them. These things melt in your mouth! The onions get their own sweet flavor when they carmelize in the oven, and it blended so perfectly! Everyone loved them, definitely a family favorite!
When I made this I didn't have very good quality pork chops so even though I adjusted the cooking time they turned out tough. However the sauce was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! I can't wait to try it with better chops and maybe even chicken!!
Both my boyfriend and I love this recipe. I sprinkled the pork chops with a little garlic powder before frying for 3 min per side, and my boyfriend suggested that I add about a tbsp brown sugar to the sauce. Also I only baked them for about 50 minutes. Absolutely delicious! Thank you!
Awesome! My 7 yr old couldnt stop telling me how great it was, which is rare. My husband thought it was gonna be dry, but it was very moist. I didnt brown the meat first, and it still turned out moist. I think it would be even better if it had marinated for a couple hours first but overall this is a great recipe. I used pork steaks instead of chops.I didnt have ginger, and i tripled the recipe since the steaks were so big. Perfect recipe, easy and delicious. Highly recommended if you dont want to stand over the stove. Thanks for sharing!!
So delicious and easy! We are a fan of spicy more so than sweet, so we added a teaspoon or two of hot mustard in the sauce...we really liked the result.
I didn't find these to be all that great. I added garlic powder to the rest of the ingredents and I covered them for the first half of the cooking time. I found them to be a bit dry. My husband said they were good but I don't think I will make these again.
Husband loved and doesn't care for pork chops, boys ate their portion and asked for another. The whole family rated this one a 5 star!
This was excellent! I followed the directions exactly and it was very tasty. A light sweet taste to it. I think the 1/8tsp of fresh cracked pepper was a nicer touch then already ground pepper. Will for sure make again.
Very tasty. I marinated pork chops overnight and since I did not have any onions, I used 2 garlic cloves like others had suggested. I did not brown the meat first and I only baked it for 45 min. I will make it again and next time I will brown the meat and maybe thicken the sauce at the end to pour on top of it.
These are wonderful. I made them on a night that we had friends over. Everyone thought they were great. I did use bone in chops as that's all that I had on hand but the flavor was wonderful. Next time I will be using double the sauce however. Thank you for sharing.
This came out absolutely delicious..My boyfriend love this recipe. Very tasty and will def make it again.
I only cook for myself, so I'm always looking for easy recipes. This is a good one! I set the servings to 2, but then I added minced garlic, doubled the honey and increased the water a bit. I lined the pan with tinfoil to make for easy clean-up, and I put in thin-sliced onions as a bed on the bottom (as recommended by another reviewer). The pork chops came out perfect and delicious!
This recipe did not turn out as I expected it to. The sauce seemed really thin... My husband and my sisters boyfriend LOVED it. I myself did not care for it and most likely will not make it again, unless the hubby requests. P.S I'm also 6 weeks preg so my taste buds may be off! I might make it again after the baby just to make sure! ;)
This wasn't all that good - certainly not what I expected based on the reviews. The pork was seriously overcooked and dry and the sauce did not have any substance. The flavor of the sauce wasn't bad, but it would need to be thickened to be effective, I will not try again, but if I did, I would eliminate the water.
Excellent recipe, I only modified by adding 1 tbs balsamic vinegar and 1 tsp of Dijon mustard to the sauce. After cooking thicken sauce with 1 tsp dissolved cornstarch in water and served over rice. Thank you this one is a keeper.
Good flavor, but the sauce was thin and not a lot of flavor transferred to the meat. I think either thickening the sauce or marinading the meat overnight would help.
Simply delicous! These where so tender that you could cut them with a fork! I however do reccommend another 2TBSP of honey ;)...
excellent recipe. i used fresh ginger and i added some minced garlic. very good.
Very easy, very tasty. I followed recipe, but added a bit more honey and about 1 large Tbsp. of hoisin sauce. Made sauce inn zip lok bag and added chops; marinated one hour. Tossed sauce and chops into glass dish and baked. Served chops and sauce over jasmine rice.
Mmmm this was sooo good! I took the advice of another commenter and covered it up while baking to make it more tender! I also added some fresh garlic, Worcestershire sauce and some Sweet Chili Sauce
I gave this 3 stars because its' appearance didn't turn out like I had hoped; glazed and brown. But, I am happy with how it tasted. It was flavorful and my family liked it. They even ate the leftovers I had later.
If I could give it 3 and a half stars, I would. It was good. but not great. I should have listened to the previous reviewers and doubled the honey; I coudn't taste it. I used 1/2 and onion and that was all I tasted. I also added a minced clove of garlic. They weren't very tender- they weren't tough, but a little chewy. Maybe I'm a little picky because I'm pregnant.... but they could have been better.
This is really good! My husband loved it..we added garlic and doubled the honey as one reviewer suggested. I cooked the chops with onions and red and green bell peppers and served it all over rice. excellent!
Awesome! I didn't have honey so I used dark corn syrup. It turned out beautifully.
the sauce tasted fantastic, but i would suggest brining your cut of pork before making this, as mine turned out a bit tough, cooked as per the instructions above.
This was fantastic. I marinated thin boneless chops for 24 hours with the sauce and onions. Added some chopped garlic too. Baked it then sliced it up and served it mixed with Jasmine rice and sauteed french green beans stir fried in sesame oil. Sprinkled the mixture with toasted sesame seeds. My Hubbie, 2 and 3 year old could not stop eating it. No leftovers!! A keeper for me.
Yummy recipe. After tasting the pork chops my son said "That a recipe to keep" I did use olive oil instead of vegetable oil and instead of cooking in the oven I cooked them in the crock pot on low for a few hours after brown the chops on each side.
I cooked this yesterday and I was pleasantly surprised. I like sweet so I used only 2 tbs of Soy sauce. I marinated the pork chops for several hours. This was a great recipe.
I made twice the amount of sauce and baked rice in the pan with the chops. The taste was great and we will use this sauce recipe again maybe even with chicken or shrimp.
ok, maybe i'm being one of those annoying people that rates a recipe and says they changed everything about it... BUT, my husband wanted to grill some nice, thick pork chops tonight, so i made this sauce without the water and added about a teaspoon of hoisin sauce, and they were FANTASTIC! we just kept mopping the sauce on them every few minutes and they were SO tender, and the honey was so great all carmelized on the chops... mmm. thanks for a great sauce recipe!
Really good! I used 4 chops browned, put the 1/2 cup water in the pan where I browned the chops to get the good juices from the meat and mixed all the liquid in there and then poured it over the meat. Also used the same amnt of sauce but added 2 more T. of honey as in the recipe for 6 chops. Served over rice with the sauce. Yummy!
Not enough flavor.
SO good. I doubled the honey and added garlic, as suggested by a previous reviewer.
tried this tonight, was a little concerned about the cooking time, I was right. Brown for 5 mins and then bake for 1 hour +, are you kidding me it was worst than leather!!! You don't need to cook pork to death anymore.
This is a great recipe...only thing to change...you don't need to bake it for 1 hour...I baked it for 45 min. at only 300 and they were great...also, when I pan seared, added salt, pepper, and some ginger--great! Will cook again!
These were very good, and the sauce is very nice. I will definitely try these again, but will not use a thick center-cut chop like I did the first time. I think this is one of those recipes that give a good starting-off but needs to be tweaked to your personal tastes, know what I mean?!
Tasted great! I added a little extra honey as others recommended and made double the sauce. Wonderful!
My whole family enjoyed these. I doubled the honey as suggested by others. I also put lemon pepper on chops before cooking them on the griddle. I then cooked for 30 minutes covered in oven and 30 minutes uncovered. Used corn starch and water to make gravy out of juice. Yummm.
good flavor. only needs to bake for 30 min though
This is good. I think you can just brown the pork chops on the stove and brush the sauce on the chops or dip in the sauce. I would double sauce if you bake or cook the chops on the stove. One more thing, you do not have to add the water.
My kids even loved it! Ages 11-5
Read a lot of the reviews about blandness and dryness. Thought that searing the meat before adding the sauce might be a mistake. Searing locks in juice and other sauces out. I used the sauce as a brine for 3 hours mixing twice. Then seared my boneless pork ribs and added back to the sauce. I did double the sauce recipe and baked on 325 degrees for a half an hour covered and 15 minutes uncovered. I used a bread pan so the sauce would completely cover the ribs. Family loved the flavor. Some of the bigger pieces were pink inside but I like under done vs. over done. The flavor definitely penetrated the meat. Love to hear any other ways to make this. It was delicious!
Love this sauce! I used chicken instead of pork. I made the sauce the night before and let my chicken marinade in it over night, then I grilled it on my indoor grill. It was incredible, it has become a regular recipe for my family.
lots of flavor... we really liked it.... i used a pork tenderloin and reduced the sauce after....
Delicious. Even without the onion.
Delicious! I've made these twice now and have followed the recipe exact. The only thing I did different was baked for 40 minutes instead of an hour; didn't see the need for the extra 20 minutes since the chops were done. Served these with rice and broccoli, pouring the sauce over the top; excellent pork chops with an oriental flair! Thanks for the recipe.
Very good!! The sauce is delicious, and flavors the pork really well. I used boneless pork chops, shorter cooking time and they came out great!! Will become a staple in my favorite recipes!
FANTASTIC!!!! just two changes! hope this helps those who thought it was to sweet. I marinated chops in mixture for an hour. Instead of soy sauce I used Terriyaki sauce and I added minced garlic and basil to the mixture. i tried a piece when it was almost done and it seemed a little too sweet for my taste. I cooked some bacon and put half slice on top of each chop and baked for five minutes before taking out. The salt from the bacon made the chops less sweet. Served with back beans and saved the sauce from the baking dish for a quick lunch recipe tomorrow with chicken. Will add in routine dinner schedule! thanks! Oh and, I put the chops on the plate and then the beans over it, Chops werent that sweet... the blend of the beans and the sauce was very delicious!
We love these. I bake mine covered with foil and take that off for the last 10-15 minutes of cooking- the chops seem to stay moister that way. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing.
This was awsome! My picky husband loved it, and could not beleive I did not marinate it for hours! My picky 5 year old asked for seconds. I used pork tenderloin instead of chops. I will definately make this again.
I thought this was an excellent recipe, no complaints. Can't wait to make it again. Thanks!
These pork chops are sooooo good! My husband and I just loved the flavor. Our girls, ages 3 and 1 1/2 loved them too! This is surely a staple on my menu. I made some rice and mixed the sauce in it and served it as a side with the chops. Yummy rice, too!
very good flavor, well worth making!
This was sooo good. The ingredients complimented so nicely. My chops browned in the while baking which made for a pretty presentation. My famly ate them up quick. I tucked this recipes away going to try it on chicken. YUM!
I used the boneless porkchops with this recipe. I also used 2 teaspoons each of garlic powder, onion powder and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper on the meat before browning in the oil. I then covered it with foil, after a half hour I basted the chops, recovered and then basted again and took off the foil for the last ten minutes. Once this was done, I placed the chops in a air tight plastic container with the gravy to keep the moisture. I served this with Rice Pilaf and Mixed vegetables. A good recipe that I will make again.
Very easy, very quick and very good!
this was very moist and easy to make. i am a new cook and i was able to make this on the first try! i didnt sear the meat and found it was done after 45 minutes in the oven. i would double the honey next time as that is the flavour i like best and found it was lost with the other flavours. there was lots of sauce left over for the rice. i will be making this again!
These were yummy, but they just tasted like pork chops with honey. There was really nothing special.
Very good. Covered in foil for first 30 minutes and uncovered for last 30 minutes. Next time I might thicken the sauce a bit, but it was still really good over the prok chops and rice I made with it. I added garlic like some suggested and a little extra honey. Saw someone mentioned sesame greeen beans as a side dish. To save time I used Green Giant's frozen ones with the almonds. Perfect side and the sauce tasted good on those too!
Maybe I did something wrong but these came out swimming in a liquid fatty broth and were not flavorful at all.
Excellent recipe, tasted great. The whole family loved them.
I too was very surprised by how much we liked this. Be sure to use a meat thermometer early on in the cooking time. My chops were over an inch thick. I browned them a lot so they were done baking in about 20 minutes. I set the chops on a plate and covered them to keep them warm. I then poured the leftover sauce into a Pyrex, added 2T Wondra, and poured it back into the pan that I browned the chops in. The result was a nice glaze that went really well with the chops and the brown rice and broccoli. Thanks a lot for a very simple but very yummy dish! I only had three chops. If you have six and like sauce, you might want to double it.
I cooked this for my husband and myself. He loved it! I cooked it with a side of cheesy potato casserole. We had leftovers, so he brought it to work and som co-workers tried it and loved it! Thanks for the recipe! It is delicious!!!!
Well now....these chops were perfect in a pinch and then some! My chops were thin so I reduced the oven temp to 300 degrees for one hour and they turned out tender and tasty! Thank you for this post...it is indeed a keeper!
This was good! I have to try it again. My husband baked it and it did not come out carmelized. All and all I thought it was great!
Very tasty, but the cook time was way off, especially if you fried them even briefly. I pulled them out of the oven after 40 minutes, and they were dangerously close to dry. Flavor was great-- poured extra heavy on the honey, and I tried half soy sauce and half teriyaki like another reviewer suggested and they came out beautifully. Next time I'll fry for just a couple minutes on each side to seal in juices, then yank out of the oven after 30 - 35 minutes.
These went over so well last night with my fiance and company. I didn't have any ginger so I used 1 clove of garlic minced. I added about 5 drops of spicy brown mustard (love sweet and spicy together)and sub'd olive oil for the veggie oil. My chops were a bit on the thin side so they were done in about 35 mins. Had I cooked them the whole hour they would have been a bit too dry. This is a keeper, thank you so much!
Might have been better if my husband had been home when they were done, which was after 30 minutes, not 60 minutes. I never bake pork chops that long, but thought maybe with all the sauce they would need additional time. They did not. The sauce was liquid, even after an hour, so I mixed in 1/2 Tbsp of cornstarch and water to thicken it. It was ok, but I have better recipes. Won't be making again.
These were excellent -- very flavorful. I did not marinate ahead of time and instead of baking them, I browned the chops in a pan and then added the sauce ingredients and simmered covered on the stovetop for about 30 minutes. The chops stayed very moist and were full of flavor. My kids (4 and 6) ate them without complaint! :)
Easy and so good. Good for leftovers, too.
Taste was nice but the pork chops came out a bit dry. If I make them again I will modify the recipes - perhaps letting them cook in a skillet vs. in the oven.
I used boneless pork chops. I only cooked approximately 30 minutes, and they seemed dry. The sauce was very thin and didn't glaze like I thought.
Simple and delicious. That' really all there is to say. Terrific!
Easy, fast, moist, and delicious! I sliced the onions and placed them in the bottom of the baking pan, and covered for the first half of the baking time, as suggested by a couple of other cooks. Don't know if it made any difference in the moistness, but didn't think it would hurt, and feared the dreaded dry chop!
I just made these for dinner tonight. Followed directions exactly except for suggestion to cover part way then uncover and this turned out perfect!!! When my husband took his first bite all he said was OH MY GOD and eyes rolled....that is enough to give a definite five in my book. Made rice with broccoli as side dish the sauce left in pan is delicious served over rice. I will be making this again very soon.
Love Love Love this recipe! I love the sweetness of this dish and i dont have ginger at my house...so i replace the ginger with Cinnamon Applesauce. I also add extra honey. I have the hardest time getting my kids to eat dinner at home...They devour this dish!
