Steps to make The Best Juicy Skillet Pork Chops


Season the chops


Season the pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides. Leave the chops to rest for 30 minutes.


Make spice rub


Mix 1 tablespoon of flour with ½ teaspoon of smoked paprika and 1 teaspoon each of chili powder, garlic powder and onion powder together in a small bowl.


Rub the chops with the spice rub


After 30 minutes, dry the pork chops with a paper towel. Rub them on both sides with the spice rub.


Cook the chops


Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a medium skillet (with a lid) over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and cook for 2 - 3 minutes until golden. If there is a strip of fat on the side, hold the pork chop fat side down for 30 seconds until the fat browns.


Add stock


Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 6 - 12 minutes while covered.To check if the chops are cooked, cut into the biggest one and check that the juices run clear.


Cover and rest


Place the pork chops on a plate. Cover loosely with aluminum foil and leave to rest for about 5 minutes.


Make a sauce


Turn the heat under the pan up to medium-high. Add 1 cup of chicken stock, 1 tablespoon of vinegar and 2 teaspoons of honey. Scrape any bits stuck to the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spoon.




Bring the sauce to a simmer and cook until it reduces by half. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt, more vinegar or honey if necessary. Remove the skillet off from the heat and swirl in the butter. Return the pork chops to the skillet and spoon some of the sauce on top.



Serve garnished with freshly chopped parsley with mashed potatoes on the side.

Super unique dish never thought to make any meat with honey before always thought it was left for desserts but now I know to explore new things!

Didn't add parsley or use olive oil instead I used sunflower and ditched the greens all together, was fine without them and I have plans to make these again.

Good dish if you're a fan of slightly spicy pork chops, my brother loved it a lot but I wasn't a big fan sadly so I think I'll be making it only for the family dinners.

I like how it doesn't take too long to make these compared to a few other recipes I know on this site so I'm happy with the prepartion time and the taste.
