Heat large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chops with salt and pepper and brush with a little oil. Cook, turning to brown evenly, until just done, 8 minutes until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees F. Remove chops from skillet and let rest for 3 minutes and keep warm. Add any remaining oil to skillet and quickly sauté garlic until tender, 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add honey and vinegar, cook and stir one minute or until heated through.
