Asian Garlic Pork Chops


Jump to Recipe
Since we have been cooking quite a few fusion types dishes lately, I thought I would change it up today and work on more of a traditional Japanese dish.  And by ‘traditional dish’, I mean something my mom makes.  I recall my mom making this amazing pork chop growing up and thought it would be a great dish to share.  So I called her about it and in my mom’s usual response, ‘I think I used this ingredient and did this…’.  So after that brief conversation with her, I gave her recommendation a shot and it was exactly what I remember it tasting like!  Mom always knows best!

This dish is keto approved at ~1g per serving, so feel free to indulge!  The taste would be described as a juicy pork accompanied by flavors of garlic soy sauce and a semi-sweet peppery finish.

The ingredients you would need for this one would be Swerve, almond flour and Japanese sake.  Here is the sake we normally use for reference.  Everything else you can get on Amazon or a local supermarket.

Now, let’s get started!

Ingredients

  • 4-6 Thin-Cut Pork Chops
  • 1-2 tbsp Salt (optional brine)
  • Sprinkle of Salt
  • Sprinkle of Black Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Almond Flour
  • 1 Garlic Clove

  • 2 tsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Butter (grass fed recommended)
  • 1 Stalk of Green Onion

Directions

1) Gather all the ingredients.

2) This step is optional, but we highly recommend it to get a super juicy pork.  Add enough water (about 4 cups) to cover pork in a large mixing bowl and add about 1-2 tbsp of salt.  Brine for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

3) Thinly cut green onions and set aside.

4) Grind garlic with a grinder or garlic press and place into mixing bowl.

5) In the mixing bowl, combine butter, soy sauce, sake, Swerve.  Set aside.

6) Pat pork dry with paper towel.  Lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle 1 tbsp of almond flour and lightly coat.  Flip and repeat the process.

7) Heat large Teflon frying pan with olive oil on high.  Once the oil starts to smoke, reduce heat to medium and carefully add pork chops.  Cover and cook until golden brown, should take around 1 – 2.5 minutes (time will vary with thickness).

8)  Once golden, flip and add garlic soy sauce mix.  Cover and cook for 45 seconds – 2 minutes or until done (internal temp should be at least 145F).

9) Transfer to serving plate and top with green onions.  Drizzle any leftover sauce on top.
