Awesome Honey Pecan Pork Chops
I was a bit doubtful, but my all of the kids, from my 3 year old to the 45 year old liked this one! I made some modifications. First, I always soften my meat by adding a bit of baking powder and oil, which I did in the morning, along with some salt and pepper.
I had to keep changing the butter during frying as it went very brown, so I wiped the pan out twice during the process, using kitchen towels. I made the sauce separately using fresh butter and a mixture of honey and maple syrup. It was incredibly sweet at this point, (even for me and I have a very sweet tooth), so I added some water, light soy and a dash of lemon juice and some more butter. I let it all thicken up a bit then poured it over the pork. Also, here in Qatar we can't get Pecans, so I used walnuts. Everyone has asked to for it again. I will try it with chicken as pork is hard to come by here, being a Muslim country.
In fact I am so pleased with this recipe I am going to post on our Doha Mums website that I made it, so others can try. A definite winner. I served it along with the Apple Spiced Rice, from this site.
