Keto pork chops in mushroom sauce

Picture of keto pork chops in mushroom sauce

Pork chops or pork cutlets are great meat parts, especially when cooked in rich and tasty mushroom sauce.

I like boneless pork chops, you can make so many different recipes from the same meat part. Easy pork chops recipes became my specialty, and that is totally expected since I am working mom and don’t have so much time for cooking. I like to cook pork chops on the stove, on lard or ghee and make some delicious sauce.

How do you tenderize pork chops?

Very often I get the question about tenderizing pork chops. This is not unusual question since pork chops tend to be chewy and dry. However, if you put them on a hot lard or a ghee just for 2 minutes on both sides and then, those pan fried pork chops cook in a gravy for 15-20 minutes, you will get nice and tender pork chops. It will be easy keto meal for the whole family. 

Of course, if you have even less time, you can try my keto pork chops recipe for a busy family, prepared in the oven.
