Ingredients: pork loin, parmesan cheese, Victoria Taylor’s Tuscan Seasoning, garlic, olive oil, spinach, herb havarti cheese, dijon mustard (optional).

Cooking the loin like this with a stuffing makes a delicious and filling main course and is so impressive that you could even serve it for a dinner party. You can serve this with vegetables or with seasoned cauliflower rice. If you can’t find havarti you can use whatever cheese you prefer and if you choose to put the mustard on the top you will give the loin a lovely crust.

Ingredients: boneless pork loin chops, sea salt, black pepper, Dijon mustard, spicy brown mustard, olive oil, garlic powder, dried thyme, onion powder, dried oregano, dried basil, Italian seasoning, Parmesan cheese.

Parmesan and mustard is a classic combination that is often found in pork recipes, but the outstanding features about these chops is the crunchy coating! This looks as good as it tastes and sets the chops off really well. You could serve this with cauliflower mash or steamed vegetables like green beans. This amazing coating works just as well on stuffed chicken breasts or drumsticks.

Easy Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops (Boneless, Contains Dairy)

– Low Carb Maven

Ingredients: boneless pork chops, salt, pepper, avocado oil or olive oil, Parmesan cheese, pork rinds, fresh parsley, fresh garlic, lemon zest, egg, water.

Putting a crust on chops helps to make it look good, but also helps to keep the meat moist and stop it drying out. The crust in this recipe gives it a crunch, but it does not take away from the delicious flavors inside. These could be served with steamed vegetables or cauliflower mash.


Parmesan Encrusted Pork Chops (Contains Dairy)

– Caveman Keto

Ingredients: pork chops, almond flour, eggs, salt, pepper, Parmesan cheese.

This is such a quick and easy way to coat chops that you will be so impressed with the end result. You get a lovely crunchy coating that sets off the flavor of the meat, yet does not overpower the dish. If it is sliced thinly you can simply fry it on both sides instead of cooking the meat in the oven. The coating will stick well if you dry the chops with kitchen paper before dipping in the egg.

Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops (Contains Dairy)

– Kasey Trenum

Ingredients: pork chops, coconut oil, butter, parmesan cheese, garlic, parsley, thyme, pink salt, pepper.

Here is another recipe that uses the classic parmesan to coat chops, but this recipe also uses thyme and garlic. The coating can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator, then applied just before cooking. If you don’t have or like thyme, you could try using dried sage instead.

Parmesan and Pork Rind Crusted Pork Chop with Creamy Lemon Sauce (Contains Dairy)

– Mince Republic

Ingredients: pork chops, crushed pork rinds, shredded parmesan cheese, egg, sour cream or heavy cream, butter, chicken stock, lemon juice, fresh chives, salt, pepper.

Here is another recipe that uses crushed pork rinds to give a crunchy texture to the coating on the chops. This is a great combination with the creamy sauce, making this dish a fantastic hearty meal which is perfect for a family Sunday lunch or when entertaining guests. The lemon sauce helps cut through any fattiness and you can add even more flavor by adding in dried sage as well.

Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops (Contains Dairy)

– Fat Secret

Ingredients: dijon mustard, olive oil, dried basil leaves, garlic powder, dried oregano leaves, thyme, black pepper, parmesan cheese, pork chops.

Although this meat does not have a strong flavor, it is robust enough to take on other flavors from the herbs and mustard. This is a simple recipe that gives you such a tasty dish and does not take long to prepare. The coating suggested here can also be used with chicken breasts or even salmon fillets, so the recipe is very adaptable!

Low Carb Parmesan Dijon Pork Chops (Contains Dairy)

– 730 Sage Street

Ingredients: boneless pork chops, dijon mustard, olive oil, kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder, thyme, onion powder, dried oregano, dried basil, Parmesan cheese.

This recipe uses the classic combination of parmesan and mustard to give the flavor chops a real boost! The mixture of herbs suggested here is amazing with the chops but you can experiment with others to give a different flavor. For example, why not try adding sage or mint leaves, both of which work well here. There is quite a lot of mustard used here, but if you are not so keen you can use half mustard and half low-carb mayo instead.

Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops (Contains Dairy)

– Keto Dash

Ingredients: pork chops, almond flour, eggs, salt, pepper, Parmesan cheese.

This is quite a basic recipe for chops that gives a lovely crust on the meat. They are easy to prepare and don’t take long to cook, so would be great for a mid-week dinner after a busy day. You could also play around with the flavors by adding in some different seasonings like herbs and garlic to boost the flavors even more.

Grilled Keto Pork Chops

Blackberry Glazed Grilled Pork Chops

– PaleOMG

Ingredients: pork chops, cinnamon, dried thyme, salt, pepper, fresh blackberries, balsamic vinegar, water.

There is a real sense of luxury and decadence when you look at these delicious chops with their fruity dressing drizzled all over! These would be a wonderful meal for a dinner party served on its own or with a simple green vegetable like green beans. The blackberries add a dash of tartness and the glaze becomes slightly sticky as it cooks, letting the flavors soak into the meat.

Low Carb Banh Mi Sandwich

– Modern Low Carb

Ingredients: pork chops, butter lettuce, carrot, daikon radish, english cucumber, red onion, cilantro, jalapeno, mayo, white vinegar, red boat fish sauce, lime, crushed red pepper, salt, avocado oil.

This sandwich really is an explosion of flavors in your mouth! You have meaty pork, salty fish sauce, and lightly pickled vegetables all tied up in creamy mayo but with a real kick from the jalapeno. You can serve these ready-constructed as shown here, or place all the different ingredients in separate dishes and let the family build their own! This is also a good dish if you are counting calories as it only contains about 200.

The Perfect Pork Chop

– Four String Farm

Ingredients: pork chop, extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper.

You are best to use thick-cut chops for this recipe as they are cooked on the grill which can make some thinner ones dry out and become quite tough. These ones are still juicy in the middle and can best be described as succulent! The grill marks on the meat make it even more appetizing and these would be the perfect addition to your next family barbecue!

Quick Lemon Rosemary Grilled Pork Chops

– Chile and Salt

Ingredients: pork chops, olive oil, rosemary, lemons, garlic, crushed red pepper, salt, pepper.

Lemon and rosemary were just made to be used together! They give a fresh tang but with earthy notes from the herb and this is complemented by the garlic. If you can leave the meat to marinade overnight you will be surprised just how much the flavors increase as the herbs and seasonings have more time to soak into the chops.

Grilled Pork Chops, Cauliflower Gratin (Contains Dairy)

– Christopher Cina

Ingredients: olive oil, garlic, lemon, kosher salt, pork loin chops, cauliflower, sharp cheddar, heavy cream, garlic, rosemary.

Here is another recipe that involves marinating the chops for at least four hours. This is done quite easily if you place the marinade and chops in a zip-loc bag in the fridge, then you can turn it or shake it every couple of hours to ensure the marinade reaches every part of the chop. This recipe is so tasty and it is gluten-free too so can be enjoyed by anyone with these issues.

Lemon/Garlic/Herb Pork Chops

– Strictly Paleo…ish!

Ingredients: pork chops, olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, dried thyme, dried basil, black pepper, sea salt.

Are you aware that garlic is a superfood?  Dr. Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D. says, “Part of the Allium family, garlic is a pungent herb that owes its medicinal properties not only to its robust amino acids (17 of them to be exact!), antioxidants such as selenium, vitamins like C and B6, and trace minerals like manganese but to its 30+ sulfur compounds as well.”

And he adds, “You shouldn’t let dreaded garlic breath prevent you from enjoying this herb. Eating a raw apple and/or chewing on some mint or parsley leaves after a garlicky meal is some easy ways to freshen your breath naturally.”

Lemon and garlic together are one of my favorite combinations, as they can cut through any fatty flavor from the meat and give the dish a fresh and summery feel, especially along with the fresh basil. Cooking these on the grill is so easy and if you score the strip of fat the chops will stay flat while cooking, making sure the meat cooks evenly.

Mustard Crusted Pork Chops

– Front + Main

Ingredients: pork chops, whole grain mustard, Dijon mustard, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper.

If you like mustard then this recipe would be perfect for you as it uses wholegrain and Dijon mustard together! Just imagine the depth of flavor and heat that the mustard mix will give to these bone-in chops! And as we all know, meat next to the bone is packed with taste. Cooked on the grill, these are lovely to serve to the family as they are easy to eat, coming with their own built-in handle!

Basil-Garlic Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops

– The Stained Cookbook

Ingredients: pork chops, garlic, fresh basil leaves, lemon juice, extra-virgin olive oil, kosher salt, fresh ground pepper.

Basil is a wonderful herb as it is so fragrant and aromatic and has a wonderful fresh flavor. Combined with garlic and lemon, it gives you a real taste of summer, so these chops are perfect for grilling. As they cook, you get to enjoy all the aromas of the seasonings wafting through the air. This mixture also works well with chicken or fish like salmon.

Lemon Basil Grilled Pork Chops

– Bitz & Giggles

Ingredients: boneless pork loin chops, olive oil, fresh basil leaves, garlic, lemon juice, sea salt, pepper.

Did you know that fresh basil is packed with anti-oxidants and contains anti-inflammatory elements? Not only that, it tastes amazing! Teamed with some lemon, this is one of the freshest combinations of flavor you can get! Just remember to let the chops rest before you dive in, as this will relax the meat and make it even more tender and tasty!

Baked Keto Pork Chops

Ingredients: pork chops, eggs, cashew meal or almond flour, sunflower seeds, garlic powder, sea salt, smoked paprika, chipotle chili powder, black pepper, parmesan cheese (optional).

The cashew ‘breading’ mix used in this recipe is actually quite like traditional breading, so it can help to fill that void! It gives the chops a lovely crunchy coating which complements the juicy meat inside. These garlicky chops taste great when served with a simple green salad or, for a more hearty meal, with a serving of green beans or asparagus.

Bacon-Wrapped Pork Loin

– Popular Paleo

Ingredients: pork loin, bacon, kosher salt, white pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme.

The depth of flavor in this dish is amazing and the whole thing looks and tastes delicious! You can either use the rub mix listed here or experiment with your own version – spice it up with cayenne and smoked paprika perhaps? This is another truly impressive dish that would grace any dinner party table and leave your guests bowled over!

Garlic-Roasted Pork Chops

– A Sweet Pea Chef

Ingredients: olive oil, sea salt, ground black pepper, pork chops, garlic.

There is something about roast pork that brings back childhood memories of weekend family meals together, so why not give these chops a try and share them with your family! This is a simple recipe to follow and the end result is delicious! Don’t worry about the garlic being too strong as roasting it mellows the flavor and gives the garlic a hint of sweetness.

Paleo Pork Chops with Rosemary & Thyme

– Paleo Effect

Ingredients: pork chops, coarse sea salt, black pepper, pork fat, chicken stock, fresh thyme, fresh rosemary.

I love quick and easy recipes and this one is exactly that. The preparation takes only a few minutes, but the flavor you get once the meat is cooked will blow you away! The combination of herbs is a classic, but it works its magic on the meat every time. Don’t be tempted to overcook the meat – otherwise, it will be dry and tough.

Magic Crown Roast of Pork

– Nom Nom Paleo

Ingredients: crown roast of pork, Magic Mushroom Powder, curly parsley (optional).

This is one of the most impressive dishes I have ever seen! I can just picture it sitting in pride of place on the table for Christmas or at Thanksgiving as a wonderful alternative to turkey. The best tip for cooking a joint of meat like this is to use a meat thermometer as this is the easiest way to make sure the meat is cooked all the way through. To serve, simply slice between the bones for individual chops.

Pork Loin Stuffed with Pumpkin & Sausage

– Keto Diet Blog

Ingredients: pork loin, gluten-free sausage meat, ghee, white onion, garlic, pumpkin, Spanish chorizo sausage or other hard sausages, rosemary, sage, salt, black pepper.

If you are trying this recipe I suggest that you do use chorizo sausage as the paprika-filled juices that it gives off go so well with pork. Along with the sage and rosemary, there is an infusion of flavor that makes this loin packed with delicious taste. If you are like me and don’t like meat with fat on, you can use this recipe for pork tenderloin instead, just adjust the cooking time or use a meat thermometer.

Simple Skillet Pork Chop

– Add a Pinch

Ingredients: pork chops, olive oil, salt, pepper.

Sometimes the simplest recipes can be the best ones and this one is no exception! You have perfectly seared and seasoned meat that is still moist and juicy when it is cooked and tastes so good you might want to eat it on its own! These chops can be served with a fresh green salad or with some steamed vegetables for a more filling meal.

The Perfect Pork Chop

– This Is So Good…

Ingredients: pork chops, ghee, poultry seasoning, sea salt, ground black pepper.

Here is another easy recipe for great chops that you can have ready to eat within 30 minutes, so these are ideal for dinner after a busy day. The poultry seasoning can give an extra boost of flavor but you can use different seasonings if you prefer, even spicing things up a bit by using chili powder as well. Rest the chops for a few minutes before serving to allow the meat to relax.

Pan Seared Pork Chop

– No Crumbs Left

Ingredients: pork chops, salt, white pepper, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, almond meal.

This recipe uses almond meal to bind the seasonings to the surface of the chops, allowing you to cook the flavor into the meat. If you are using really thick chops, it might be best to use a meat thermometer to ensure they are cooked right through, but if it is still a little pink in the middle it really doesn’t matter as it won’t do you any harm.

Other Keto Pork Chops

– I Breathe I’m Hungry

Ingredients: pork chops, olive oil, garlic powder, kosher salt, ground black pepper, salsa verde, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, jalapenos, bacon.

Here is a completely different slant on traditionally grilled chops, but they certainly don’t lack in the flavor department! You have tender juicy meat, smothered in cheese and with a good kick from the jalapenos. And the crowning glory – bacon! YUM!  You can use this recipe for chicken breast or thigh meat as well.

Ingredients: pork loin or rib roast, coconut flour, ginger, dry ground mustard, salt, pepper, whole cranberries fresh or frozen, Sukrin:1, Sukrin Gold, garlic, water, lemon.

With this recipe, you can either use fresh cranberries or a ready-prepared cranberry sauce to make things a bit easier, but if you use sauce you won’t need to add any sweetener. I like to use the fresh berries as I enjoy the tart taste which is quite refreshing along with the meat. You also have a hint of heat from the ginger and mustard, making this dish warming and satisfying one.

Spicy Pulled Pork and Lime Cilantro Coleslaw

– Wicked Stuffed

Ingredients: pork chops, dried chipotle peppers, yellow onion, lime juice, tomato paste, garlic, apple cider vinegar, cumin, sea salt, oregano, beef or chicken stock, bay leaves, whole cloves, package of carrot/cabbage coleslaw, red onion, cilantro, fresh squeezed lime juice, jalapeños (optional), extra virgin olive oil, black pepper.

Lettuce wraps are perfect with this spicy recipe as they have a cooling taste yet are a great way to get the meat and veggies into your mouth! With spiced pork, you really need something fresh to set it off, so the lime cilantro coleslaw is ideal here. If you are not too keen on using lettuce leaves you can use whatever ‘wraps’ or ketogenic ‘bread’ you like.

Vegetable Hash Stuffed Pork Chops With Pepper Jack Cream Sauce (Contains Dairy)

– Peace, Love and Low Carb

Ingredients: thick cut boneless pork loin chops, butter, mushrooms, orange bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, red bell pepper, onion, celery, shallot, garlic, salt, pepper, heavy cream, pepper jack cheese, parmesan cheese, parsley.

Because the vegetable hash is made from different colored peppers it has a rainbow effect which can look so appetizing! It looks even better if you chop all the veggies the same size before stuffing the chops. The finished product is a deliciously stuffed chop on a bed of vegetables, stuffed with even more and smothered in a garlic and cheese sauce – reminds me of comfort food!

Don’t you just love one-pot meals?! They are so easy to put together and it saves on the washing-up! This recipe gives you tender chops with tasty vegetables all served up in a herby, flavorful sauce. You don’t even need any side dishes as this is a whole meal in itself. If you really don’t like sprouts you can substitute a different vegetable, but I recommend you at least try them!

Simple Tomato Balsamic Braised Pork Chops

– PaleOMG

Ingredients: ghee, pork chops, salt, yellow onion, garlic, tomatoes, tomato sauce, chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, herbs de provence, parsley, basil, black pepper.

The flavors in this dish are reminiscent of the Mediterranean, thanks to the balsamic vinegar, basil and garlic. Once the tomatoes have cooked they break down a bit, giving substance to the sauce which is packed with flavors from the herbs. If you can, always buy the best balsamic vinegar you can afford as this is one ingredient where you get what you pay for!

Perfect Pork Chops with Keto Gravy

– Keto Diet Blog

Ingredients: pork chops, ghee, salt, pepper, Ultimate Keto Gravy.

Sometimes you can feel like you are missing out on certain foods if you are watching the carbs, so this is a great gravy recipe to use as it is the mushrooms that form the body of the gravy here and there is no flour used to thicken the sauce. Poured over perfectly cooked pork chops, you have a simple but tasty meal to enjoy anytime.

Apple Pork Chops | Bacon and Apple Cider Vinegar Sauce!

– Keto Connect

Ingredients: pork loin chops, apple cider vinegar, butter, ghee, bacon, onion, ginger, cinnamon, liquid stevia, salt, black pepper.

The apple cider vinegar adds a nice flavor to this dish. The acidic notes help to cut through any fatty taste from the meat and the onion and bacon make the sauce take on a great consistency. Slice the chops diagonally and drizzle with sauce for a great presentation.

Low Carb Sandwich | Pork Loin with Thyme Butter

– Keto Connect

Ingredients: butter, pork loin, garlic, dried thyme, dried parsley, salt, pepper, keto bread, red onion.

It is a great idea to combine the herbs, seasonings, and butter as this can help the flavor infuse into the meat better. The bread will pick up some of the flavors of the meat, so every ingredient in the sandwich will blend together. You can serve this with thin sliced red onion or with some chopped salad onions.
