I’m about to do something horrible.
I’m going to throw my OWN MOTHER under the bus.
I hope she doesn’t read this, so don‘t share it with her on Facebook, OK?
When we were growing up, dinners tended to happen in a rotation. Broiled chicken, rice and peas on Monday, meatloaf on Tuesday, pork chops on Wednesday. You get the idea. I don’t blame my mom (did you read that part, did you????). She had five kids to feed and had to cook to the lowest common denominator of picky eaters. For the record, I was not the picky eater….(throws siblings under bus with mom). My mom made a lot of awesome dishes (ahhhh…her red beans and rice…her lasagna…her seven-minute frosting.) but her pork chops were not one of them. I don’t like broiled pork chops. There, I said it and I will even take the “picky” label for it if needed. I don’t like broiled pork chops.
I wouldn’t eat pork for a long time as an adult, but now I think it’s my favorite white meat.
I LOVE this recipe for honey garlic pork chops. They’re grilled, not broiled, by the way. With assorted pork chops on sale at Brookshire’s this week, you can buy a bunch and cook them any old way you like.
Honey Garlic Pork Chops
1/8 cup honey
3 Tbs soy sauce
6 cloves garlic, minced
6 pork loin chops, boneless, trimmed of excess fat, 4 oz each
In a shallow dish, whisk together honey, soy sauce and garlic.
Coat chops in mixture.
Reserve left over honey mixture for basting.
Place chops on greased grill over med-high heat, close lid and cook, basting 2 times.
