– 4 pork chops (bone-in or boneless, about 1-inch thick)
– 4 cloves garlic, minced
– 1/3 cup honey
– 1/4 cup soy sauce
– 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
– 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– Salt and pepper, to taste
– 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)


1. **Prepare the pork chops**: Season the pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides. Set them aside.

2. **Make the honey garlic sauce**: In a small bowl, combine minced garlic, honey, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, and Dijon mustard. Mix well until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.

3. **Cook the pork chops**: Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops to the skillet and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side until they are golden brown and cooked through. The internal temperature should reach 145°F (63°C).

4. **Add the sauce**: Once the pork chops are cooked, reduce the heat to medium-low and pour the honey garlic sauce over the pork chops. Let the pork chops simmer in the sauce for 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld and the sauce to thicken slightly.

5. **Serve and garnish**: Remove the skillet from the heat. Transfer the pork chops to a serving plate and drizzle the remaining honey garlic sauce over them. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.

### Tips

– **Choose the right pork chops**: For this recipe, you can use either bone-in or boneless pork chops. Just make sure they are about 1-inch thick for even cooking.

– **Adjust the sauce**: Feel free to adjust the amount of honey, soy sauce, or vinegar in the sauce to suit your taste preferences.

– **Rest the pork chops**: Let the pork chops rest for a few minutes before serving to allow the juices to redistribute for maximum tenderness.
