This is a super simple keto dinner recipe made with pan-fried pork chops. I serve mine with cauli-mash and keto gravy, although any non starchy veggies and a simple olive oil dressing will work.

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. It's worth mentioning that 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)

  • 6 medium or 12 small pork chops (800 g/ 1.76 lb, about 130 g/ 4.6 oz per serving)
  • 2 tbsp ghee or lard (30 ml)
  • sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 recipe Ultimate Keto Gravy (about 2 1/2 cups)


  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. Easy Pork Chops with Keto Gravy
  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. Easy Pork Chops with Keto Gravy
  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 60-63 °C/ 140-145 °F.
  4. 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 - it's great for catching spat oil.
  5. Serve with Ultimate Keto Gravy and try with Creamy Keto Mash. The pork chops can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days, or frozen fr up to 3 months. Easy Pork Chops with Keto Gravy

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Wow!  Just had these for dinner (without gravy) and they were amazing!!!  Best pork chops I’ve ever had!


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


Lamb chops will be a great substitute 😊


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! 😊


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! 😊
