A honey glaze transforms simple weeknight pork chops, giving them a lovely sweetness. We've paired the pork with roasted veggies, but it's also pretty tasty with cheesy polenta.

  • Prep time 20 minutes
  • Total time 30 minutes
  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 red onion , cut in 2-inch pieces
  • 2 red peppers , cut in 2-inch pieces
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup cubed feta cheese (about 50 g)
  • 2 tablespoons liquid honey
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic , finely grated or pressed
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 4 bone-in centre-in pork loin chops (about 850 g total)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Method

In large bowl, toss together red onion, red peppers, half of the oil, the Italian seasoning and half each of the salt and pepper. Arrange in single layer on generously greased rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with feta. Roast in 425°F oven, turning once, until veggies are tender and golden, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together honey, vinegar, garlic and mustard. Sprinkle pork with remaining salt and pepper. In large nonstick skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat; cook pork, turning once, until just a hint of pink remains inside, 8 to 10 minutes. Pour honey mixture over pork chops; cook, turning to coat, until glazed, about 1 minute.

Divide pork and vegetables among 4 serving plates; sprinkle with parsley.
