1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
6 cloves garlic, minced

Step 1

Preheat the oven broiler or grill on medium-high heat.

Step 2

Season the pork chops with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Step 3

Heat the oil in an oven-safe pan or skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering.

Step 4

Sear the chops until golden and cooked through at 145 degrees F, about 4-5 minutes per side.

Step 5

Transfer the chops to a plate and set them aside.

Step 6

Reduce the heat to medium.

Step 7

Melt the butter in the same skillet, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom.

Step 8

Sauté the garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Step 9

Add the honey, broth, and vinegar.

Step 10

Increase the heat to medium-high and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce reduces down and thickens slightly, for about 3-4 minutes.

Step 11

Add the pork back into the pan and baste them generously with the sauce.

Step 12

Broil or grill the pork until the edges are slightly charred, about 1-2 minutes.

Step 13

Garnish with parsley and serve!
