The rain has not stopped here in the Tampa Bay area, and rainy days call for comfort food, movie nights, and warm drinks. What better than some spicy honey pork chops to bring some coziness in my home while it’s pouring outside. These pork chops were so delicious that I could not help sharing the recipe with you. If it’s raining a lot by you, do like us, play some oldies while enjoying these spicy honey pork chops. They are easy to make and taste delightfully good.
Spicy Honey Pork Chops
4 pork chops
¼ cup of Honey
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp paprika
Salt and Pepper
1 tbsp butter
2 medium shallots
¼ chicken broth or water
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp red hot sweet chili
Preheat broiler on medium-high heat
Season pork chops with salt, pepper, paprika, and the garlic powder
Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Sear the pork chops on both sides until they are golden brown for about 5 minutes each side.
Transfer to a plate and set aside.
Reduce the heat, melt the butter. Sauté the shallots and scrape up any brown bits.
Add the honey, red hot sweet chili, chicken stock, and vinegar.
Continue to cook the sauce until it is reduced and thickened. Add the pork chop back into the pan, baste generously with the sauce and broil them for 2 minutes.
I served my pork chops with white rice and sautéed beans.
While it was gray outside, our house was warm. We never stopped counting our blessings regardless of the circumstances.
