Our version of pork chops is better for keto fans because we’ve added parmesan cheese. One serving has 20.5g total fat and only 2g total carbs. Have some broccoli or asparagus on the side!

Preparation Tips

Use boneless pork chops to reduce cooking time. If you want to further boost your fat intake, feel free to add more grated parmesan. While we recommended olive oil for frying, you may also use avocado oil depending on what’s available. You’ll be able to tell that the pork chops are done by slicing into the middle. The juices should be clear and meat should be pale.
