The "Goodest" Honey Balsamic Pork Chops

The 4.5 year old in our house claimed these were the "goodest" pork chops. I think I'd have to agree with him!
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Total Time 35 mins
Servings 4


  • 4 farm raised fresh pork chops
  • salt/seasoned salt
  • Glaze:
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2-3 green onions chopped
  • 1/2 tsp garlic
  • 1/4 tsp rosemary


  • Rub in a preferred amount of salt or seasoned salt on each side of each pork chop.
  • Turn on the heat under your frying pan (electric or stovetop both work fine.)
  • Pick up one of your pork chops and rub the fatty edge around in the bottom of your pan (to "oil" your pan without having to add extra oil.)
  • Add the pork chops to the greased pans and cook on each side (about 5-10 minutes, depending on heat temperature) until the internal temperature is 145 degrees.
  • While the chops are cooking, mix together the glaze.
  • When the chops are fully cooked, lower the heat and drizzle the glaze evenly across the chops.
  • Let the glaze simmer for 5-10 minutes longer.
  • Serve and enjoy!


This recipe easily be varied to go with a different number of pork chops.
I made six with it, needing 3 different frying pans across the stove. I used a stainless steel electric frying pan for 3 of them and non-stick pans for the other 3. Non-stick probably worked better for cleaning as the glaze becomes pretty hard after it cools and it fell off the non-stick better. But I love my stainless steel pan, so I just soaked it in water and with a stainless steel sponge and some elbow grease, everything came clean.

Sadly, it looks like my wonderful stainless steel skillet is no longer made. If I had to buy another one, I’d get this one.
