One night I wanted something spicy, something sweet and the only meat I had was pork chops. I have made pork before and, not going to lie, it was not that great. I sat down did some searching for a decent recipe and just couldn’t find anything that I was really interested in. So I figured that it can’t be that hard to come up with my own sweet and spicy sauce that would pair perfectly with pork. And I am sure happy that I did it myself!
The tanginess was perfect, the spice just right and the sweet not too much. I had perfectly blended together the right amount of ingredients and created a sauce that I will probably use on just about anything. So if you’re ready, here it is…..
You’ll want to make sure you have all these ingredients before you start…..
Also, I did not take exact measurements of the ingredients used. You will want to use anywhere from 1-3 TSP of the spices and 2-4 TBSP of the sauces. I added more red-pepper flakes and honey than the others and very little ginger and turmeric.
- red-pepper flakes (more than the other spices)
- ginger (small amount)
- turmeric (small amount)
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- honey (more than the other sauces)
- teriyaki sauce
- worcestershire sauce
- soy sauce
- olive oil
Now lets begin……
- First you want to start by taking the olive oil and heating that in a skillet. Then take your pork-chops and sprinkle them (on both sides) with a little bit of salt,pepper, paprika, ginger, turmeric,garlic and onion powders.
- Take the honey, red-pepper flakes, paprika, ginger, turmeric, garlic and onion powders, salt, pepper, teriyaki sauce, worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and blend together to get a medium type consistency.
- Now that your olive oil has heated in your skillet add the pork-chops. Cook on medium-high heat until they are just about done.
- Now lower the heat to a low-medium setting and add the tangy sauce that you have made. You will want to simmer the sauce with the meat till it thickens up, so I would say about 7-8 minutes, maybe shorter or longer.
Take your pork-chops and place on plate and drizzle the leftover sauce that is in your pan onto the top of your chops. And there you have it. Simple yet delicious!
