Honey Maple Pecan Pork Chops

Today's recipe, Honey Maple Pecan Pork Chops, are the best dang pork chops I have ever had - ever! Deeee-licious. Simple to make too.  

I don't cook a lot of pork, but this recipe has me wanting to make it more often. The mixture of the honey, maple and pecans is perfection. The sweetness is not overwhelming - the soy sauce and chicken broth are key. If you prefer a sweeter sauce, stick with the original recipe from, Awesome Honey Pecan Pork Chops. The recipe has almost 600 reviews with a 4 1/2 star rating.    

I served the pork chops with steamed green beans and my Honey Roasted Mini Red Potatoes. If you haven't tried the potatoes yet, I highly recommend making them with this dish.

  • 3 pounds boneless pork chops, 1/4 inch thick, *pounded thin
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup flour to dredge pork chops
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped (lightly toasted) 
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • salt & pepper to taste
In a small bowl, mix honey, maple syrup, soy sauce, chicken broth and pecans - set aside. 

In a shallow dish mix flour and salt and pepper. In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, melt butter. Dredge pork chops in flour, shake off excess and place in skillet. Brown both sides and cook until pork chops are *cooked through. Once ready, move chops to a serving plate.  

Reduce heat to medium and add the honey-maple-pecan mixture to the butter drippings in the skillet. Heat until hot, stirring continuously. Once heated through, spoon mixture over pork chops and serve. Enjoy!
