What if I told you that I’ve discovered your new favourite way to eat pork chops…
And it only takes 7 minutes?
I know, I know. You think I’m telling…
Well I’m not, and I will not apologise for the pig pun.
I thought it was crackling, but if you’re really upset about it, here’s a close up of that hunky chop in it’s delicious caramelised glaze.
This recipe is honestly child’s play. Throw together the ingredients for the glaze (2 minutes) then pop your pork into a hot pan and let it sizzle and get all sticky and glossy for around 5 minutes.
Even less if you decide not to purchase the largest pork chops you can get your mitts on.
This is just the ticket for a busy weeknight, or any busy night in fact.
I have a feeling that’s almost every evening in December for most of us.
Plate ’em up and eat ’em whilst they’re hot.
The very best speedy supper, whether your just feeding little old you, or a crowd of hungry guests.
Sticky Honey Mustard Pork Chops
- 2 free-range pork chops
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 1/2 Tbsp agave nectar (sub. for honey)
- 1/2 Tbsp wholegrain mustard
- 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
- salt and pepper
In a small bowl, combine your minced garlic, agave nectar, mustard and lemon juice.
Set a frying or griddle pan over a medium-high heat on the hob.
Whilst it's warming up, season your chops generously with salt and pepper on both sides.
Once the pan is hot, add some low-calorie cooking spray.
Spoon 1/4 of the honey mixture onto one side of each pork chop, then quickly flip them into the pan so that they are honey side down.
Divide the remaining mixture between the two chops, spooning evenly over the top as they cook.
Using tongs, move the chops around in the pan to prevent the honey from burning and setting onto the pan.
Fry for 2-3 minutes on one side, then flip and fry for 1-2 minutes on the other side. You may need to fry for more / less time depending on the thickness of your meat. Make sure that no pink juices run from the chops when a knife is inserted.
