This recipe couldn’t be any easier, quicker, and more flavorful. Don’t hesitate to season each side of the pork chops with your preferred seasoning.

You can use pork chops with or without bone. It should still have a little layer of fat on the outside. This will taste and smell very good when frying.

The size of your pork chop will depend on where you buy it. It can be thick or thin. The one used in this recipe is a small-medium size (around 140g per piece).

It’s always best to use clean sources of meat that come from grass-fed sources whenever possible. Try to get your pork chops from a local butcher so they are fresh.

What is the secret to juicy tender pork chops?

The secret to juicy, tender pork chops lies in proper seasoning, not overcooking, and using methods like brining or marinating. I recommend to cook them to the right internal temperature (145°F with a 3-minute rest) is key to retain moisture and tenderness.

Is it better to fry or bake pork chops?

I like both frying and baking pork chops because they have their advantages. Frying, especially pan-searing, offers a flavorful, crispy exterior, ideal for thinner cuts. Baking, on the other hand, is better for thicker chops, ensuring even cooking and retaining moisture without the need for constant attention. Your choice depends on the chop thickness and your flavor and texture preferences.

Can you eat the fat on a pork chop on keto?

Absolutely! On a keto diet, you can eat the fat on a pork chop. The keto diet emphasizes high-fat intake, and animal fats like those on pork chops are suitable for maintaining ketosis. This fat contributes to both the flavor and your dietary fat needs. I love the taste and flavor of fried pork fat!
