Usually a fancy looking dinner will take you a lot of time to cook at home. Not this one! These Garlic Rosemary Pork Chops are easy to make yet they taste like celebration. We didn't have any special occasion when I made this but it was great to have variety in my taste buds lol. One of the reasons I love keto is I never crave more flavor - these dishes are just flavorful already.
I used thinly sliced pork chops so they cook faster. I also made sure I tenderized the pork with a meat tenderizer to make it cook more evenly and, well, more tender.
Here's how to make it:
2 lbs thinly sliced pork chops (tenderized) Freshly ground black pepper and salt (to taste) 1 tbsp. freshly minced rosemary 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, melted 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 375°. Season pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides to taste.
In a small bowl mix together butter, rosemary, and garlic. Set aside.
In an oven safe skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil then add pork chops. Sear until golden, 3 minutes, flip and cook 3 minutes more. Brush pork chops generously with garlic butter.
Place skillet in oven and cook until cooked through (145° for medium), 10-12 minutes. Serve with more garlic butter and your favorite steamed vegetable.
