Seared Pork Chops
This recipe is another Whole 30 favorite that is simple and flavorful. I cooked up some sweet potato fries and apples with it to make a great combination. For this recipe the ratios are approximate for the chops.
5 pork chops (thick cut)
2 cups apple cider
1/2 tbsp kosher salt
2 tsp black pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp clarified butter
Take your thick cut pork chops and butterfly them so they are flat. In a fridge safe container, place all your pork chops and cover with the apple cider. Marinate 4 hours to overnight.
Remove pork chops from liquid and pat dry with a paper towel. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika on both sides evenly.
Heat a skillet on medium-high heat and add clarified butter. Cook pork chops for about 4 minutes per side or until the chops are cooked medium-well. Don't overcook!
The result is very flavorful pork chops that are moist and tender. The apple cider is the key!
