I prefer boneless pan fried pork chops over bone in. That’s because they contain less excess fatty tissue and cook faster! The sweet and sour honey lemon sauce is delectable with this crispy meat as well!

I love using coconut oil in this honey lemon sauce. Coconut oil is also called copra oil and its extracted from the meat of a ripe coconut. It’s high in saturated fats and therefore slow to oxidize. This basically means it has natural preservatives and lasts a long time.

Coconut oil adds a lovely flavor to the sauce which is amazing with boneless pan fried pork chops. Another unique and mouthwatering flavor in this dish is the black garlic powder. It’s so delicious I use it in both the meat and the sauce.

So what makes black garlic different than regular garlic? Black garlic is aged and heated causing a chemical reaction between amino acids and reducing sugars. Whole garlic bulbs are heated for several weeks which turns them black.

Coconut oil and black garlic are delicious with this dish.

The results create a natural balsamic vinegar or tamarind flavor. It’s absolutely delectable in the boneless pan fried pork chops with honey lemon sauce. Other ingredients for the sauce include coconut oil, white wine vinegar, lemon juice, and yellow mustard.

I also use minced ginger, garlic, shallots, and honey. Don’t forget salt and finely chopped mint leaves for the best sauce recipe. For the main course I use 8 (6 oz) boneless pan fried pork chops, olive oil, and salt. Also a dash of black pepper and black garlic powder for full flavor!

When making the chops, sear them in a pan first, then pop in the oven. While they are baking, fry up the garlic and shallots for the sauce. Once they begin to brown combine the remaining ingredients and simmer. Get the full details and descriptions below!
