We love us some pork chops!

Really, we do, I don't cook a lot of red meat these days because it can be expensive but also because it isn't the healthiest for you. You gotta love "the other white meat." Thing is, I'm always looking for a new way to prepare it since my husband I have pork fairly often. Anotehr pork perk? It's versatile meat that can take on a lot of different flavors.

I tried this recipe tonight for Honey and Spice-Glazed Pork Chops from myrecipes.com, making just a minor change. They came out fab! I really loved the sweet flavor, but it wasn't overpowering either. I'm definitely adding this to my repetoire of pork recipes.

Honey and Spice-Glazed Pork Chops

1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Cooking spray
4 (4-ounce) boneless center-cut loin pork chops (about 1/2 inch thick)
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl.

Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper; cook 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Reduce heat to medium-low; add honey mixture. Cook 10 minutes or until done, turning pork once.
