For dinner tonight I was making the “boys” pork chops. I didn’t want to make the usual lol… so I thought I would mix a few things together and hope it tasted well. I guess I should have known that combining honey, brown sugar and garlic would work no matter what but I also added a bit of cayenne pepper powder and a few other things.
This is the experimental pork chops recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as they did!
This is what I decided on for my ingredients. The only thing I didn’t have in the picture is the sliced onions I decided to add at the last minute.
The first thing I did was to pour about 1 Tbsp. of Olive Oil in my baking pan and using a pastry brush made sure the whole bottom of the pan was “greased.”
Then I placed the pork chops in the pan, spread the sliced onion rings on them and set it aside until the “sauce” was mixed up.
Now I mixed up the sauce. I added 3 Tbsp. Honey, 4 Tbsp. Brown Sugar, 2 Tsp. Garlic Powder, 1 Tsp. Cayenne Pepper Powder and 3 Tbsp. Water to a large measuring cup and using my whisk, mixed it all up until combined. It looked like this.
I poured this concoction all over the pork chops and onions, making sure they were all covered.
Then I sprinkled some fresh ground pepper on top and baked it at 375 for 45 minutes.
And this is what came out of the oven when the 45 minutes were up!
