The Beauty of Bone-In Pork Chops

Why bone-in, you might ask? Well, cooking pork chops with the bone lends more flavor to the meat. Plus, it helps the chop stay juicy and tender during the cooking process1. It’s a small change that makes a big difference in taste and texture.

Ingredients

This recipe keeps things simple, allowing the natural flavors of the pork to shine through. All you’ll need are bone-in pork chops, olive oil, and your choice of seasoning. This could be as basic as salt and pepper, or you could mix things up with some garlic powder, paprika, or your favorite herb blend.

  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 T. shallot minced
  • 4 bone-in pork chops 1/2″ thick
  • 1 t. garlic powder
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 3/4 c. chicken broth preferably organic
  • 1/4 c. unsalted butter cut into chunks
  • 2 T. fresh parsley finely chopped

The Process

Heat olive oil in a large, heavy-duty skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shallot softens and develops a bit of color, approximately 3-4 minutes.

Sprinkle the pork chops with the garlic powder, and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Add the chops to the hot skillet and brown on each side, approximately 3-4 minutes per side.

Transfer the pork chops from skillet to a platter and set aside. Add chicken broth and scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the skillet with a spatula. Return the chops to the skillet and reduce the heat to medium low. Cover and cook for approximately 8-10 minutes or until chops are cooked through.

Transfer chops to a serving plate and cover to keep warm. While the chops rest, add the butter to the skillet and whisk to combine with the pan sauce. Continue cooking until the sauce thickens slightly, approximately 2-3 minutes.

Remove from heat and season with additional salt and pepper, if desired. To serve, spoon some of the pan sauce over the pork chops and sprinkle with fresh parsley if using. Pair with your choice of sides and serve immediately. Enjoy!

The Verdict

These Bone-In Pork Chops are a testament to the fact that sometimes, less is more. They’re simple, flavorful, and keto-friendly, making them a perfect choice for a weeknight dinner or a special occasion. So why wait? Give this recipe a try, and savor the simplicity and deliciousness of perfectly cooked bone-in pork chops.
