Prep time


Cooking time






  • 4 pork chops, about 1-inch thick and 6 to 7 ounces each

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken stock

  • 2 teaspoons honey or brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, optional

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • Salt, to taste


  • Prepare Pork Chops
  • Season on both sides with salt and pepper. Set aside, for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make the spice rub. In a small bowl, mix the flour, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and smoked paprika. After 30 minutes, use a paper towel to pat the pork chops dry, and then rub both sides of the chops with the spice rub.
  • Heat the oil in a medium skillet (with lid) over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, add the pork. Cook until golden, 2-3 minutes.
  • Flip the pork. Lower the heat, then cover. Cook 6 – 12 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer reads 145 F when inserted into the thickest part of the chop. Transfer pork chops to a plate then cover loosely with aluminum foil. Let the pork rest for 5 minutes.
  • Make Pan Sauce
  • Increase the heat to medium-high, then add the chicken stock, vinegar, and honey.
  • Bring to a simmer and cook until reduced by half. Taste then adjust the seasoning with salt, more vinegar or honey.
  • Slide the skillet off of the heat and when the sauce is no longer simmering, swirl in the butter. Slide the pork chops back into the pan and spoon some of the sauce on top. Slice the chops then place back into the pan.
  • Scatter fresh parsley over the pork then serve.
