15 oz center cut boneless pork chops (3 pork chops)
ground black pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon chopped Italian parsley, for garnishing
2 1/2 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons warm water
3 dashes cayenne pepper
Season the pork chops with salt and ground black pepper, on both sides. Combine all ingredients in the Honey Garlic Sauce, mix well.
Heat a cast-iron skillet on high heat. Add the vegetable oil and 1 tablespoon of butter. Add pork chops to the skillet and fry each side of the pork, uninterrupted, for approximately 3-4 minutes each, or until surface turns brown. Flip over pork chops and repeat the same.
Push the pork chops to one side of the skillet, add remaining butter. Add the garlic and saute for approximately 10 seconds, or until they turn light brown. Add Honey Garlic Sauce, cook to reduce the sauce to a thicker consistency (or until the sauce turns an amber brown). Spoon the sauce over pork chops. Turn off the heat, garnish with the parsley and serve.
