Honey Pecan Pork Chops

***This time of the year just makes me want to let out a happy sigh...I absolutely love the holidays. What are you thankful for this year? I have so much to be thankful for...I truly feel blessed. I hope that you feel the same way!

Right now, I have a turkey de-frosting in the refrigerator and a grocery list of things that I still need to go buy for the big day. This year, I'm responsible for the turkey, cornbread dressing, homemade cranberry sauce and Pecan-Caramelized Brie for the appetizer...no pressure! ;-)

Here are the recipes I'll be using:
Cornbread Dressing - I'll be using a combination of THIS recipe and THIS one.

These are all recipes that I've used in the past, and I can't wait to make them again!

Now, back to the current post...I wanted to include this recipe for Honey Pecan Pork Chops because it's got "holidays!" written all over it. These porkchops are sweet without being too sweet, and there's just something extra special about them! I think you'll love these!

Bon Appetit!***

4 pork cutlets, tenderized, 1/4-inch thick
4 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Season flour with salt and pepper; dust surfaces of pork with seasoned flour.

Melt butter in large heavy skillet over medium-high heat; brown cutlets on one side, turn; stir together honey and pecans and add to skillet, stir gently. Cover and simmer for 7-8 minutes.

Serve cutlets with sauce from skillet.

Made these tonight. Pork was delicious, but the honey and pecans burned quickly. I would suggest cooking pork cutlets completely then putting honey pecan mix in skillet for a very short time (1-2) minutes.

I tried making this tonight and unfortunately by putting the honey and pecans in just after the pork chops they burned really fast and ruined everything. I'd try it again but would make the sauce after cooking pork chops as another commenter mentioned.

Just made this and it turned out great. I didnt put the sauce in till the pork chops were cooked fully then added the honey. I didnt have pecans so I used an almond and walnut mix I had and chopped it up. Absolutely delish!

Liz. Made this tonight and the best pork chops ever and
also easy to make. On to my favorites. Cook chops
fully before adding honey and pecans to avoid burning.

These pork chops were absolutely delicious and very quick to prepare! I recommend tenderizing the chops first (as indicated).
