First things first, what is a ketogenic diet?

I don’t know about you but I have seen ketogenic diet recipes popping up everywhere but I wasn’t really sure what it was until I did a little more research. A ketogenic diet is a diet that is high in fat and low in carbs. Now, I am the first one to say “gimme all the pasta and top it with mashed potatoes while you’re at it” but after checking out Carolyn Ketchum’s new cookbook “Easy Keto Dinners”, I must say, the ketogenic diet appears to be full of flavorful options.

Parmesan Ranch Pork Chops Recipe

Serves 4 Prep Time: Cook Time:
5(2)

Parmesan Ranch Seasoning:

  • 3/4 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Pork Chops

  • 4 boneless pork chops, about 1 inch thick
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil, for the pan
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2

In a medium bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the Parmesan ranch seasoning. Set aside.

3

Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels and season both sides with salt and pepper.

4

In a large ovenproof skillet that can hold all of the pork chops, heat the oil over medium-heat until shimmering. Add the chops and cook 3 minutes, until nicely browned.

5

Flip the chops over and cook for another 3 minutes. Remove the heat and sprinkle the top of each chop with the seasoning mixture. Press lightly to adhere.

6

Place the skillet in the oven and cook until the pork reaches an internal temperatures of 145 degrees, 7 to 10 minutes. Serve garnished with fresh parsley, if desired.
