Total time: 45 minutes | Serves 6
  • 1 cup wildflower honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 5 cardamom pods
  • 4 cloves
  • 3 tablespoons Sherry vinegar
  • 6 (10-ounce) center-cut pork loin chops
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • Salt, pepper

Step 1Combine the honey, coriander seeds, fennel seeds, cardamom pods and cloves in a saucepan (the honey will boil over in a small saucepan). Gently bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the honey becomes dark amber-colored, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 2Remove from the heat. Carefully pour the vinegar into the pot to avoid splattering. Stir well. Pour the mixture through a sieve to remove the spices and discard them. Set aside the honey at room temperature.

Step 3Heat the grill. Lightly brush both sides of the pork chops with the oil. Generously season with salt and pepper. Grill the chops over a hot fire, turning as necessary, until they're no longer pink in the center, about 8 minutes a side. Remove them to a serving platter.

Step 4Serve warm, brushing both sides of the chops with the honey glaze. Top with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce.
