Bacon & Apple Smothered Pork Chops

Bacon & Apple Smothered Pork Chops

Bacon. Apple. Pork. What’s not to love? This recipe comes by way of Nom Nom Paleo.  It’s a good one and I made very few changes because it’s a good one.   The only problem with the pork was entirely my own.  I used boneless pork chops

Pan-Fried Pork Chops are a simple staple great for any chef’s arsenal.  They are good with a simple shake of salt and pepper, but using our Seven Spice Sprinkle makes them great!


Pan-Fried Pork Chops

 

Serves/ Yield: 4

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook/ Assembly Time: 12  minutes

Total Time: 22 minutes

 

Ingredients:

  • 2-4 Tbsp. ghee, divided (or grass-fed butter)
  • 4-6 boneless pork center loin chops, 3/4-1 inch thick
  • 1-2 Tbsp. Seven Spice Sprinkle

Recipe:

Pre-heat a cast iron skillet or griddle over medium-high heat, 5-10 minutes.  Reduce heat slightly, add 1-2 Tbsp. ghee to the pan.

Sprinkle spice across pork chops. Once the ghee has melted add the chops spice-side down.  Sprinkle the top-side of the meat.  Cook on each side between 4 and 6 minutes.  If using a meat thermometer, it should read at least 160F.

About one minute before they are completely cooked place a pat of ghee or butter (about the size of a postage stamp) in the middle of each chop.

 



Simple Roast Pork

Simple Roast Pork

Simple Roast Pork is a great recipe that follows the K.I.S.S motto. Even though it is not a thirty-minute meal it is a very hands-off recipe with a fast prep time. If you have a smaller roast (1-2 lbs.) you can add root vegetables to

These are not for your Whole 30 journey.  You could definitely use the first part of the recipe to make some great grilled chops (skip the sweetener in the rub) but, they’re delicious and the sauce is so good!  Beware: it makes well over two

I finally found some Whole 30 compliant Italian sausage.  No idea why this knocks my socks off, but I get annoyed adding a thousand seasonings to ground meat to make it sausage.  Sometimes it’s just the little wins.

In related sausage news, my personal fave is the Applegate Chicken & Apple, but there’s another brand my grocery sells that’s about $2 cheaper and I sometimes get that.  You want to know the real reason I like the Applegate better.  It’s not the taste.  It is that they are straight.  Yup.  I will pay $2 extra to get sausage that I can brown evenly.  The ones with the bends are the worst – to cook with, they taste fine.
