honey garlic pork chops

I found this recipe via Pinterest, and while I have had some bad calls finding recipes that way, I figured this one was fool proof (who can go wrong with soy sauce, honey and garlic?).  Luckily, my instincts proved right.  The pork was delicious!  We had friends over who also have a couple of kids, and all people - little and big - were going to town on it!  Not one speck of leftovers!  It was yum.  I altered the recipe a bit and will post my altered recipe below (the original recipe is here).  I will definitely be making this again!

RECIPE: Honey Garlic Pork Chops

3/4 c. honey
1/2 c. soy sauce
1 1/2 heads of garlic (or about 18 cloves), minced
6 center-cut pork chops (about 3.5lbs total)

In a small glass mixing bowl, mix together honey, soy sauce and minced garlic.  Stir until well combined.  Divide the mixture in half, pouring each half into its own gallon-sized freezer bag.  Add 3 pork chops to each bag.  Close up the bags and massage the pork a bit, to get the marinade to 'take' well.  Lay the bags flat in the fridge.  Let the pork chops marinate for about 8 hours.

Heat your grill to about medium heat.  Remove pork chops from the marinade and place on the grill.  Grill each chop for about 7 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.  Serve warm (with Calrose rice and mixed veggies, perhaps?) and ENJOY!  Mmm.


  1. Wow, that is a lot of garlic. But I totally trust you so I will have to give this a try. I love the idea of grilling: no big dishes to wash. Our grill is crap and I have been threatening for years to get Shawn a new one for Father's Day but I don't think he's interested. Maybe I should buy a new one for myself!
    Once again I am update my food blog. That would be amazing news, wouldn't it?

  2. Mindy, it WAS a lot of garlic (no fun to peel), but it really didn't taste strong at all. Try it, and tell me your thoughts. Also, this is probably way more than you want. It fed 4 adults and 4 kids. Maybe half it? And you should totally get a new grill! I vote yes. :)
