Honey and pecans form a glaze to enrobe and elevate average pork chops. This recipe looks elegant and difficult, but it's easy enough for a tantalizingly tasty weeknight meal. Serve with sweet potatoes and buttered broccoli for a dinner to remember.  

 

Honey Pecan Pork Chops:

1¼ pounds boneless pork loin, pounded thin
½ cup all-purpose flour for coating
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tablespoons butter
¼ cup honey
¼ cup chopped pecans

 

Directions:

1. In a shallow dish, mix together flour, salt and pepper. Dredge pork cutlets in the flour mixture.

2. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add chops, and brown both sides. Transfer to a warm plate.

3. Mix honey and pecans into the pan drippings. Heat through, stirring constantly.

4. Pour sauce over cutlets. Serve with fresh baked sweet potatoes and buttered broccoli.
