Hooray! My first recipe post on my new blog. This blog is primarily a collection of my adventures in the kitchen, including my successes and failures, as well as other useful information that I come across in my own paleo lifestyle. I’ll start things off here with last night’s family dinner, a very successful endeavor, if I do say so myself!
Alright, so my mother might have been the head chef in this particular cooking task, but I was, as always, the proprietor for paleo vigilance. Living with thoroughly non-paleo parents and a younger brother is often difficult, though they’re often my biggest supporters. Here’s a meal that we all enjoyed!
- 4 Pork chops
- 3 small apples
- 1 onion
- Fresh (or dried) rosemary
- Salt and pepper
- Your favourite cooking fat
Roughly chop the apples and onions and saute them in a pan with some oil (coconut oil and ghee are my favourites). Once the onions are translucent, add a few cloves of sliced garlic and some rosemary and cook for another minute.
Meanwhile, brown the pork chops in a second pan:
Once the pork chops are browned, transfer them to a large baking dish, season with salt and pepper, and top with the apple and onion mixture. We also poured a bit of chicken stock into the bottom of the pan so that the meat would be more moist.
Bake at 375F for about 30 minutes until the chops are cooked through.
Here’s dinner! We had a salad of mixed greens and chopped orange, and my favourite veggie, broccoli!
I’ll do this again whenever I have pork chops on hand!
