Honey Pecan Pork Chops

This is a fabulous recipe for pork chops. I just buy the average boneless pork loin chops - not the really thin or really thick ones. This is nice enough to make for company, but easy enough for a weeknight.

Honey Pecan Pork Chops

6-8 boneless pork loin chops
1/4 cup to 1/2 cup flour for coating
1/2 tsp. dried sage
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper
2 Tbsp. butter
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup chopped pecans

In a shallow dish mix together flour, salt, pepper, sage, and thyme. Dredge pork in the flour mixture. In a large skillet or fry pan set to 325, melt butter. Add chops and brown on both sides until just no longer pink in the center. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil. Mix honey and pecans into the pan drippings. Heat through, stirring constantly (about 30 seconds). Pour the sauce over the pork chops and serve. YUMMY!!


  1. I didn't know you loved to cook so much. I thought you learned to enjoy it because you're a mother of five. Oh how I wish I had your talent and desire. I do NOT enjoy cooking. It's definitely a chore for me. Maybe with practicing with yours and others recipes I'll enjoy cooking more. It's hard to cook for an apraxic little dude and a VERY picky hubby. I've got a new goal though, (one I set back about two months ago) and I'm determined to cook healthy foods that my family will enjoy.

  2. I love to cook, but I think it's harder with 5 kids. Some of them like broccoli, some don't, one doesn't like bananas, two don't like blueberries, some don't like ground seems like whatever I make someone doesn't like it! So, I try to find things that will please most everyone. Cooking is just like everything, it gets easier with practice. You can do it!! :)
