Super Easy Pork Chops Recipe for Busy Days

Louise Hendon | January 27

I was wondering how I can make Keto pork chops without breadcrumbs but still full of flavor.  And after experimenting a bunch, I discovered 2 different methods:

  1. use a delicious spice or herb blend, or 
  2. use a light egg batter (add your seasoning to that batter) to coat the pork chops.

Since this recipe is called “Super Easy Pork Chops,” I went for option 1 so you can enjoy a delicious keto dinner with very few ingredients and minimal time or effort.

What spice or herb blend to use on top of Pork Chops?

Pork goes well with a variety of seasonings:

  1. Garlic salt with a dash of onion powder is a great option.
  2. Freshly ground black pepper is always excellent.
  3. Italian seasoning is another simple option that you probably have already in your pantry.
  4. Paprika with a dash of chili powder along with some oregano is a fancier option if you have a well-stocked pantry.
  5. Or make your own spice blend using a mixture of the above (that’s what I’ve done in the recipe below)!

What to serve with your Keto Pork Chops?
It’s not that fun to eat pork chops by itself, even if you have put delicious seasoning on it and cooked it to perfection.

That’s why side dishes are essential here…

I’d suggest this Roasted Cheesy Keto Cauliflower Recipe, but asparagus or even spinach provide a colorful contrast on the plate that will make your dish look even more appealing.
