Pork Chops with Honey Garlic Sauce and Apple-Cranberry Wheatberry Salad

This is a nice weeknight meal, simple to prepare and quite tasty. I had never heard of “wheat berries” before this recipe and they were a little hard to find in the stores, but worth the search. so be careful when hearing the sauce for the pork chops. Mine seized up a little abs was quite thick. Next time I will use a lower heat.


Pork Chops with Honey Garlic Sauce

4 bone-in Pork loin chops (6 oz. each)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup honey
2 T reduced sodium soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced

In a large, non-stick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook pork chops over medium high heat until cooked through, about 6 minutes on each side.

Remove from pan and tent with foil. Combine remaining ingredients and add to pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 3-4 minutes. (Be careful not to cook too long as it can get too thick.)

Drizzle over pork chops and serve immediatly.
