  • 2x 8oz/250g Pork Chops (bone in)
  • 2 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 4 cloves of Garlic (2 lightly crushed with skins on, 2 minced)
  • 1/4 cup / 70g Honey
  • 1.5 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 sprig of Rosemary
  • 1 sprig of Thyme
  • Salt & Black Pepper
  • Olive Oil


  • Bring your pork chops to room temp then liberally coat with salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.
  • Place a frying pan over high heat, wait a couple minutes for it to get nice and hot then lay your pork chops down. Fry for 3-5mins or until charred, then flip over.
  • Drop in your butter, thyme, rosemary and 2 garlic cloves. Baste the chops for another 3-5mins, or until the second side is charred & the juices are running clear. Flip and sear the fat until golden, then remove & rest to one side.
  • Turn heat down to a low-medium, & when the pan has cooled down add your minced garlic. Make sure it’s not still scorching hot or the garlic will burn & go bitter.
  • Fry until the garlic just begins to catch colour, then pour in your honey, soy sauce and apple cider vinegar. Simmer until you can coat the back of a spoon, stirring regularly. Add pork chops back in (just to coat in the sauce) then serve. Your chops should just be cooked through after resting, but if they need a little extra then add to the sauce for a few minutes until hot through the centre.
