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.

Instructions

  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. Perfect 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. Perfect 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. 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.

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.
