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.

    Hello, many thanks for the recipe. This is no doubt a silly question but do you use sweet or salty soy sauce?

      Either, I used a regular salty soy sauce though.

    What does 3 cm pieces of ginger mean?

    • Alida Ryder

      A 3cm piece of fresh ginger is around 1 inch of fresh ginger.

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

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

    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.

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

    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! 🙂

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

    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!
