Honey Garlic Pork Chops

Pork chops cooking
6 pork chops
1 c. flour
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. black pepper
1 1/2 Tbsp. ground ginger
1 Tbsp. ground nutmeg
1 tsp. ground thyme
1 tsp. ground sage
1 Tbsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
Honey garlic sauce
2 eggs
4 Tbsp. water
canola oil

Honey Garlic Sauce:
2 Tbsp. olive oil
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
1 c. honey 
1/4 c. soy sauce
1 tsp. cracked black pepper

Don't let the sauce foam over!
Combine the flour, salt, pepper, ginger, nutmeg, thyme, sage, paprika, and cayenne pepper in a bowl, and mix well. Combine the eggs and water together in a shallow bowl, and whisk. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper, to taste. Dip each pork chop in the flour mixture. Dip the the chops in the egg wash, then a final time in the flour mixture. Press the mix into the pork chop to make sure it sticks well.

Heat a skillet on the stove with about 1/2 inch of canola oil in the bottom. Turn the heat to just below medium, and cook the pork chops about 4-6 minutes on each size. You want to make sure the outside doesn't get done before the inside.

Dinner is ready!
To make the sauce: In a small saucepan, combine the olive oil and minced garlic. Cook over medium low heat for about a minute, then add the honey, soy sauce, and pepper. Simmer for 5-10 minutes. Be careful because it can easily foam up over the pot! Remove from heat and let cool a few minutes.

When the pork chops are done cooking, drain on a wire rack for a few minutes, then dip in the honey garlic sauce. I served the pork chops with rice.
