Do NOT be afraid to try these Keto recipes. Yes, they are low in carbs, medium in fat and high in protein BUT they really do taste great! Keto likes things like cream cheese, oil, whipping cream, cheddar and Parmesan cheeses. There are very little pasta or grain foods in Keto, which aids in trying to shed some pounds. Most spices are allowed.
Once you try this recipe you will LOVE it!
Keto Parmesan Garlic Pork Chops
1.5 lb. center cut boneless pork chops
½ medium onion, sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 oz. cream cheese
⅓ cup chicken broth
⅓ cup parmesan cheese
½ cup cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon pepper
salt to taste
Brown pork chops, onion, and garlic cloves in 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet on medium/high (approx. 3-5 minutes each side).
Remove pork chops from skillet.
Add the rest of the ingredients, and cook on medium until sauce thickens. Make sure to use a whisk and stir continuously.
Add pork chops back to sauce mixture and simmer on low for 5 minutes or until done.
Serve with cauliflower rice or broccoli (the latter is a little high in carbs)
