Double Crunch Honey Garlic Pork Chops
Here is a different twist on pork chops. I love trying different flavors on familiar preparations. This was a perfect match. The honey, soy sauce, and garlic all paired perfectly with a crispy double crunch outside layer and perfect pork inside. The sauce on the pork chops is delicious, so I suggest to serve this over brown rice so you can really get all of the benefits of this sauce! This is one of my husbands favorite meals. The next time you are making fried pork chops, give this recipe a try, you won't regret it. Do not be intimated by the new flavors, they are still fried pork chops afterall ...

Ingredients for the Pork Chops:
6 Pork Chops
1 cup of Flour
2 teaspoons of Salt
2 teaspoons of Pepper
1.5 tablespoons of Ginger, ground
1 tablespoon of Nutmeg
1 teaspoon of Thyme
1 teaspoon of Sage
1 tablespoon of Paprika
1/2 teaspoon of Cayenne
Oil for Frying
Ingredients for Egg Wash:
4 tablespoons of Water
Ingredients for the Honey Garlic Sauce:
2 tablespoons of Olive Oil
4 cloves of Garlic, minced
1 cup of Honey
1/4 cup of Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon of Black Pepper
First, get out two medium bowls. In one bowl combine the flour, ginger, nutmeg, thyme, sage, paprika and cayenne. Make sure these are well combined. In the other bowl, whisk together the eggs and water.
Now, heat an iron skillet over medium-heat with 1/4 inch of oil in the bottom of the pan.
Next, get out your pork chops. It is time to season and prepare them.
Put a sheet of wax paper on the counter for easy clean up. Place the pork chops on the wax paper and rub the generously with the salt and pepper.
Now, take each pork chop and press them firmly in the flour mixture, then to the egg wash, and then back to the flour mixture. This will give you the double crunch.
After you have prepared each pork chop, start frying! Place the pork chops in the oil and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown.
While your pork chops are frying, start the sauce. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the garlic and olive oil. After the garlic is soften add the honey, soy sauce, and black pepper and let simmer for 5-10 minutes on low.
Back to the pork chops, when they are done frying place the pork chops on a plate with a paper towel underneath to catch any of the extra oil.
Dip each pork chop into the honey garlic sauce and serve over brown rice.
