Perfect Pork Chops with Keto Gravy

Pork is relatively high in fat so it's perfect for a keto diet. When cooking with pork, I'm very selective and only go for outdoor-reared pork. I've listed all the reasons for my choices in this post.

Outdoor-reared pork will cost you more but it's totally worth it. How about beef, poultry, eggs or vegetables? Contrary to what you may have heard, not everything we eat has to be organic, pastured, etc. To find out more, have a look at this post: Keto Diet on a Budget & Meal Preparation Tips.

Ingredients (makes 6 servings):

When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).


  1. Pat dry the pork chops using a paper towel. Rub with one tablespoon of ghee from both sides and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a large pan greased with the remaining ghee. Once the pan is hot, add the pork chops and cook over a medium-high heat. Cook until the sides begin to brown, for about 2 minutes. Then, turn on the other side and cook for another 2 minutes.
  3. Lower the heat and cook for another 5-10 minutes depending on the thickness of the meat. If you're using an instant read thermometer, it should read 140-145 F / 60-63 C. When done, transfer on a plate, cover with a foil and let it rest for about 5 minutes before serving. You can use splatter shield like this one - it's great for catching spat oil. Serve with Ultimate Keto Gravy and try with Creamy Keto Mash!

Hi! What could I substitute for the pork as I don't eat pork?


Lamb chops will be a great substitute Smile


I know this may sound silly but how do you know the servings of each? How many grams of each equal the listed nutrition per serving? I want to try this recipe, as well as many others, but do not want to go over serving wise.


Hi Ari, it's 1-2 slices of pork chops per serving (depending on the size - 6 servings per recipe) and 1/4 cup keto gravy to serve with (full recipe for keto gravy is 1 1/2 cups which is 6 servings). Hope this helps! Smile


This looks great!  I haven't had pork chops in about a month, so I'm going to have to add them to my next meal plan.


Thank you Laura! Hope you like it! Smile
