Glazed Pork Chops

I was surprised when Dan wanted to make this recipe since it mixes savory and sweet.  That is usually a don’t in his book.  Thankfully he really liked this recipe.  Savory and sweet is a perfect combo in my book and so I was glad to get to try this out.  It was a total winner, but what isn’t when it includes sage leaves.

Pan-Fried Glazed Pork Chops
adapted from Jamie’s Food Revolution
  • 16 ounces of pork chops
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 4 sprigs fresh sage
  • 1 lemon
  • honey to glaze
Rub both sides of the chop with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. 

Remove the stem off the sage leaves and toss in a little olive oil and set aside.

Heat a frying pan over high heat and lay both chops flat in pan and cook 4-5 minutes/side.  When the chops turn golden add a few sage leaves to the pan, cook for about 30 seconds and remove. 

Spoon a large tablespoon of honey over each chop and flip so that they get completely coated.  When the chops turn a dark golden color remove and let them rest on a plate for a minute or two.
