Honey Ginger Fried Pork Chops

It seems like this is a good week for my kitchen (well, at least after the weak ravioli). This seems like your standard double-battered fried pork chop, but it’s quite a bit more. In this dish, once you think you have all the layers nailed down, another one pops up and hits you in the face.

HONEY GINGER FRIED PORK CHOPS

  • 6 pork loin chops, trimmed neatly
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp pepper, divided
  • 1½ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground thyme
  • 1 tsp ground sage
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup water
  • Vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup honey
  • ½ cup soy sauce

In a wide bowl, mix flour, salt, 2 teaspoons pepper, ginger, nutmeg, thyme, sage, paprika, and cayenne pepper. In another bowl, beat together eggs and water. In a large skillet, heat a ½-inch of vegetable oil over slightly medium heat until decently hot. In batches of three, dredge each chop in flour mixture, then in eggs, then back in flour mixture. Place in oil to fry. Cook each chop for 5-6 minutes a side, flipping once. When done, place on a wire rack or paper towels to rest and dry. When all chops are cooked, heat olive oil over medium heat in a saucepan. Add garlic and sauté until soft and slightly browned. Add honey, soy sauce, and remaining tablespoon of pepper. Cook for 5-10 minutes, making it doesn’t foam over. Remove from heat and allow to set slightly. Spoon sauce over chops when serving.

Makes 4-6 servings. Enjoy!
