Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp sage, dried
  • salt & pepper
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/8 cup brine from candied jalapéno jar
  • 1/2 cup candied jalapenos, chopped can use more or less, depending on how spicy you like your food.

Instructions

  • Mix flour, sage and salt & pepper in a medium bowl.
  • Season pork chops with salt & pepper. Dredge in flour mixture.
  • Pan fry in heavy bottom pan, until golden brown on both sides
  • Remove pork from pan. Then deglaze pan with beef stock, scraping off browned bits from bottom of pan. Add honey and jalapéno juice. Add jalapénos to taste. I usually add about 1/2 cup chopped. Cook sauce over high heat for a few minutes, until sauce thickens.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste. Return pork chops to pan and coat with sauce. Cook until pork reaches desired temperature on meat thermometer. About, 145°F.

Cook sauce over high heat to thicken.
