So guess what I made last night? *Winky wink.* Glazed pork chops. Completely my own recipe. My version is almost.... Asian-y--if that makes any sense? It would have been great in a stir fry, or even with a side of Asian rice on the side, or just with regular ol' 'all American sides' itself!
So here's what you're gonna need:
~ Medium sized bowl.
~ Medium sized baking dish.
~ Tin foil.
~ Measuring cups.
~ Measuring spoons.
~ Stove pan.
So here's what you're gonna do:
Take four pork chops from packaging and place them out thawed and ready for action!
Measure 1 teaspoon of paprika, add to bowl.
Take 1/2 cup of brown sugar, add to bowl.
Add 2 tablespoons of honey to the bowl.
Measure out 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, add to bowl.
Take 1 teaspoon of cayenne power, add to bowl.
Add 1 teaspoon of black pepper to the bowl.
Add a pinch of salt to the bowl.
Mix all of the spices together the best you can. I know it's going to get thick, but what I did was add a teeny bit of water--no more than a table spoon--to make stirring it a bit easier.
Once you've mixed your 'pork chop rub', grab a pork chop, slather it in the spices and repeat with all of the others. Use ALL of the rub, you're going to need it.
Now before you put your chops in the pan, preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and get your baking dish and the piece of foil ready.
Add your pork chops to the pan on medium heat (trust me, I put mine on high, and I ruined one!), and cook on each side for 6 minutes!
After each chop has been semi-cooked, add them to the baking dish and cover the dish with foil. Bake for 20 minutes!
Now, if you used ALL of your spices you should have a bit left in your pan. Heat it up a bit to where it's smooth, run it across the tops of your chops and serve!
