Paleo Pork Chops the Easy Way

Paleo Pork Chops the Easy Way

I had no idea pork could taste so clean and moist until I tried this company’s pork chops. I have never been a big fan of pork except for my weekend bottomless pit when it comes to bacon options and Baked Eggs in a Porky Cup! Well, now my views have changed 100% about pork and its TRUE flavor. Thanks to 5280meat, I have not only fallen in love with how a true pork chop should taste, I have also created a very easy paleo pork chops recipe. It is out-of-this-world, simple to prepare and clean tasting.

I am all in favor of easy and healthy recipes. I do not enjoy shopping on the other side of town for that one main ingredient that I can’t even find on Amazon. I have a terrific stock of pantry items as time progresses and some terrific herbs and spices. Sometimes I just want a good easy sauce that has clean ingredients though and is readymade or that is super quick to whip up without a large number of ingredients. Below I have given you both options but this recipe is DELICIOUS without any sauce!

I would not have made this, had it not been for 5280meat and the introduction of their pork. I have gone “hog wild” for their ribs and even tried their boneless pork chops and a pork roast. This is not at all an advertisement for them. It is my sincere feedback. Since I do not serve it a lot, I asked my family for their feedback too and I got this: “Crazy flavor! Is this what pork really should taste like? Golden and buttery looking after”; “Delicious and light. The best pork we have ever eaten as far as I am concerned”; “I loved your chops! “

So, no matter where you buy your chops from, do enjoy this recipe and if you want to try possibly the best pork chops we have ever eaten, try them out. These are perfect when paired alongside spaghetti squash, zoodles or cauliflower rice. Speaking of pork, you may get a kick out of a dessert or two, Nutter Butter Bacon Cookies and Paleo Dark Chocolate Bacon OMG! Ok, I am hungry!

Hope you enjoy! Let me know how you like it.

    I’m confused on the ingredient item “sauce” is it just labeled with a number in front of it on accident and the recipe for “sauce” follows or is it a bit of hot sauce, tomato sauce or some other “sauce”?

      Hi Tara,

      The numbers indicate each step of the directions and the sauce step happens to be labeled number 8, indicating the location where you’ll start to make the sauce. And yes, the recipe for the sauce follows number 8.

      Hope this clarifies! When will you be making the recipe?

      Fondly,
      Tina
