Honey Garlic Pork Chops Recipe

One thing that I always enjoy grilling during the summer is honey garlic pork chops. This recipe uses boneless pork chops but you can use chops with the bone-in as well. The highlight of this recipe is the sauce which consists of honey, ketchup, garlic and soy sauce.  This delicious sauce is basted onto the pork chops during the grilling process and the end result is amazing. If you would prefer to use a different type of meat, this recipe would work with chicken as well. If you are looking for a simple and delicious recipe for the grill, give this one a try. Enjoy.

Honey Garlic Pork Chops Recipe

  • Author: Bobby
  • Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • A ¼ cup of soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 1/2lbs boneless pork chops (6 4 oz portions)
  • salt and pepper



  1. In a medium bowl stir together ketchup, honey, soy sauce, and garlic. Set aside.
  2. Lightly season the pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper. Brush each chop with the sauce to coat.
  3.  Grease the grill grates of an outdoor grill and heat the grill to medium-high heat. Place pork chops onto the grill, and cook (while basting with the sauce often) for about 5 minutes on each side or until the meat is cooked through (the internal temperature has reached 145 degrees).
    (Makes 6 Servings)

    I found the photo on pinterest. I could smell the chops through my screen, so had to find where they came from! Looking forward to recipes (and more luscious pics)

  2. Bobby says:

    Jasmine- any kind of cold salad would be good or sometimes I do flavored rice or french fries.

  3. christy says:

    Can you replace the soy sauce with something else? What about cooking this in the oven or on a George Foreman grill? I would love to make this tonight but do not have soy sauce and cant use the grill (storming out).
    Thanks. Looks so yummy.

  4. Bobby says:

    christy- I am not sure what you would replace the soy sauce with. I would say this could be cooked in the oven and on a George Foreman grill.

  5. Bobby says:

    Steph – I have never tried pan searing them instead of grilling so I cannot say how they would turn out. If you do try it, please let everyone know the results. THANKS.

    I used this recipe but let the pork chops marinade for about an hour and then cooked in a pan, dumping the remaining sauce in the pan also. I cooked the pork chops on medium heat for 6 minutes on each side. It was delicious!!

  7. Dena Dupuie says:

    Really loved this recipe! I marinaded it and used it with pork loin. I gave the recipe to my sister and she said her family enjoyed it also. My nephew liked it so much he took it to school for lunch the next day.

  8. dave ak1200 says:

    yeah I made this as a marinade today but added a little cumin, some ground mustard, hot paprika, and a splash of 18 year old aged balsamic vinegar. whisked it all up, gave it a taste. was right on point, cant wait to see how they taste after the charcoal does its magic.

    by the time i will cook them, they will have marinated 2.5 hours. looking forward to it.

    also, for the sides, I am doing creamed peas, mashed potatoes, and some applesauce 🙂 should be good

  9. Tiffanee says:

    Made this today. I let it marinate over night and pan cooked themwith the rest of the sauce. So delicious and tasty. Send more recipies my way. *sorry my spelling is off.*

  10. Ginger says:

    If you are wanting to cut salt you could sub whiskey for the soy or just use a low sodium soy. If you sub with whisky I would add a TBSP of molasses for depth of flavor.

  11. Sharon says:

    Tried these tonight and they were delicious. My husband really liked them too, so this recipe is definitely a keeper in our house.

  12. Debra Rusling says:

    I made this the other night they are really good I poured over ribs after I cooked ribs on low for 2 hours and cranked up to broil and added sauce .I also used spicy ketchup that’s all I had but we like spicy.

  13. Lise says:

    I would like to know if cooked in the oven what would be the temperature and how long? If cooked in the crock pot how hi and how long?

  14. jerry says:

    can i pan fry or bake in oven? is there a good replacement for soy sauce,to much sodium? if i can fry how long? if a can bake what temp and how long?

  15. Bobby says:

    Brenda – I am just guessing but I would say 350 degrees for 30 minutes or so depending on the thickness. The internal temperature should reach 145 degrees. I like to serve these pork chops with a cold pasta salad.

  16. Cathii says:

    I cooked this recipe tonight…forgot the garlic & even without, the result was delicious 🙂

  17. Lillian says:

    Made this recipe tonight and instead of grilling the chops I put everything in a crockpot. Tasted amazing! Thanks for the recipe!

  18. Desirae says:

    I made this recipe before in the oven and it turned out really good. I did 375 for 30 minutes and they were perfect. Tonight we’re making it on the grill and I can’t wait to taste them. As side dishes I’m making a flavored rice, corn, and garlic teriyaki broccoli. Always a hit in my house!

  19. Bobby says:

    You should not notice a strong ketchup flavor. The ingredients produce a flavor combination that is somewhat similar to a basic homemade BBQ sauce.

  20. Elisha Armstrong says:

    I did these on my stove top in a large skillet. They came out deliciously sticky and tender! I did not marinate them either. I simply sprayed a bit of non stick spray in my skillet, poured a little of the sauce in it and then laid the pork chops on top. Then i poured a bit more of the sauce on top and cooked them over medium heat. When they were nearly done, i increased heat to medium-high and added more sauce when needed. The chops began to caramelize and darken. They came out beautiful and were super delicious!

  21. Elisha Armstrong says:

    And they were not ketchup-y at all…more like an asian bbq sauce. It’s very similar to a sauce i prepare for my baked sesame chicken!

  22. Tara Whitney says:

    Brenda, I am not a ketchup fan and I followed this recipe. It is not a good home made BBQ sauce. It definitively tastes ketchupy. I recommend adding some mustard and onion to balance the taste.

  23. Sara says:

    I made these tonight and my family enjoyed them. I will say that there was way more sauce than we needed for 6 boneiess chops, so next time I will divide it in half and warm one half for the kids to use as a dipping sauce. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

  24. Eunice says:

    I tried this and cooked it in my electric skillet. It was an absolute dream!! And my husband loved it. Thanks for the recipe. 5*

  25. carmen says:

    Great dish! Made it with rice pilaf and corn….i would use a little less ketchup and a little more honey, but otherwise very task and enjoyed by all! Thanks for sharing!

  26. TINKY M. says:

    Made these last night and when I tell you I ate it ALL … I mean I ate it A-L-L! Delicious! Can’t wait to make them again and will also try this recipe on some wings as well. Literally finger licking good! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  27. Lisa Nicole Paone says:

    These were amazing! Even our picky 7 year old loved them! Will definitely be making these again! Thank you for such a fantastic and simple recipe!

  28. Sandra says:

    Thank you for a really good recipe. I made this recipe last night for my husband and myself. I found your website late in the afternoon and had all the ingredients on hand. It was easy, fast and delicious.
