Honey Ginger Pork Chops

4 bone-in pork loin chops ($1.50)
1/4 cup honey ($.75)
1/4 cup lemon juice ($.20)
4 tablespoons soy sauce, any variety ($.15)
2 garlic cloves, minced ($.25)
2 T. minced gingerroot ($.50)
1 T. parsley ($.10)

In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, brown pork chops on both sides. Cook over medium heat for 10-12 minutes or until juice run clear and a meat thermometer reads 160°.

In a small bowl, combine the honey, lemon juice, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger. Remove chops and keep warm. Add honey mixture to the skillet; cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve with chops. Top with parsley before serving.

Yield: 4 servings
Cost: $3.45 or $.86 per serving

Want a easy variation?
Swap out orange juice for lemon juice, omit ginger and add 1/8 C. brown sugar (with the honey, garlic, etc.) and 1/4 C. toasted, chopped walnuts just before serving for a nutty sweet crunchy!
