Smothered Pork Chops

Smothered Pork Chops Recipe

I must admit, smothered pork chops were something I had not tried before we switched to all real food eating, so I don’t technically know how they are supposed to taste. I do know that this version is really, really good, so while it may not be an exact replica of the not-so-healthy version, it is delicious!

These smothered pork chops are also a very quick meal and my husband and kids all love it. It came together in less than 30 minutes and only requires one pan to prepare!

  • Rinse each pork chop well and pat dry.
  • Dip each pork chop into the egg mixture and then in the almond flour.
  • Put each pork chop into the pre-heated skillet with the oil and cook about 5 minutes per side until starting to brown.
  • While the pork chops are cooking, thinly slice the onions and mushrooms.
  • Remove the pork chops and place them on a plate.
  • Add the onions to the pan and sprinkle with remaining spices.
  • Cook and stir until caramelized and browned, about 8 minutes.
  • Add the mushrooms and cook until browned.
  • Scoot the onions to the side and return the pork chops to the pan.
  • Spread the onions on top of and between the pork chops.
  • Add the heavy cream and coconut milk and cook over medium low heat for an additional 5-8 minutes until most of the milk has evaporated and the sauce has started to thicken.

  • Enjoy!
