Sticky Honey & Soy pork chops

Sticky Honey & Soy Pork Chops

Simpler than these incredible pork chops you won’t easily find! Whilst editing the photos for this post I started salivating thinking about the sticky, sweet meat flavoured with soy, ginger and a hint of chilli.

Sticky Honey & Soy Pork Chops

So often I feel pressured (by myself) to create absolute masterpieces for dinner and I often forget that sometimes the simpler and more  straight-forward a recipe, the more rewarding the eating will be. And nowhere is this truer than with these delicious pork chops. Honey, soy, ginger & chilli is by no means a new combination but one that works so well with pork. And when paired with a simple salad of mixed leaves, sugar snap peas and a zingy dressing, makes for a perfect simple supper.

    Hi Alida,
    I just love the combination of that sticky sauce – I constantly find myself declaring my favourite ingredients or combinations – never does one last long though until the next recipe! Will definitely be listing this one on my dinner to do list!! Thanx!

    Perfect timing. Just what I needed to add inspiration to the defrosting chops for supper. Thank you.

  • Donna

    what type of “Chili”?

  • Laura

    Can u use ground ginger vs freshly grated ginger? Thanks!

  • Michelle

    Made these tonight, and they were very good! I’m thinking I’ll cook the sauce down a bit next time so it sticks a bit more, but the flavor was really nice. :) Thanks so much for the recipe! :)

  • Mrs. Bossy to you...

    Are you cooking the pork chops in any oil or just put them in the pan by themselves?

  • Mrs. Bossy to you...

    Are you frying the pork chops in any oil or just put them in the pan?

    • Alida Ryder

      No, I just use a non-stick pan because the marinade has oil in it already.

  • Kell

    Will this marinade work just as well on pork fillet too?

    • Alida Ryder

      Absolutely Kelly. This is also magic on chicken breasts and thighs.
