While pork is cooking, combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl; set aside. Reduce heat to medium-low; add honey mixture to the pork. Cook 10 minutes or until done, turning pork once. Remove pork from the skillet and allow the sauce to boil until thickened and slightly reduced for a glaze, 3-5 minutes. Spoon glaze over the pork before serving.

* To make ahead/freezer meal – Brown the pork as directed above and once browned, remove and allow to cool. Place cooled pork chops into a freezer storage bag. Add the remaining ingredients to the bag, seal and freeze. When ready to prepare, remove from the freezer and defrost, Transfer the contents into a crockpot, cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours or on high for 3-5 hours.
