Juicy, tender pork chops smothered in a creamy onion and bacon sauce. This might just be the best low carb meal I’ve ever had!
Okay, people. Run, run, do not walk, run to your kitchen and make these low carb pork chops for dinner. Run as fast as you can. Stop only at your local grocery store to get any necessary ingredients. Although, if you are a good low carber, chances are you already have all of this in your fridge. So hurry home and whip out a good skillet, chop your bacon, slice your onions and get ready to rock and roll. All you pork lovers out there, this is a pork party in your mouth. You will be in hog heaven, you will want to go hog wild, and you will be living high off the hog. You will be bringing home the bacon (literally) and pigs will fly before you will let anyone share your dinner tonight. And now I can’t come up with any more porcine play on words, so just believe me. You need this in your life.
Some people might think that pork-on-pork recipes are over the top. I say the haters gonna hate. Bacon makes everything more delicious and what pairs better with pig than more pig? This lovely dream of a low carb, high fat recipe came to me when I was staring into my freezer, looking at the 30 pounds of pasture-raised pork I bought recently. Much of it came as pork chops and I do have a longstanding love affair with pork chops. And if you’ve ever had pasture-raised pork chops, you’ll know what I mean when I say I fell even more in love. The meat is more tender and the fat is melt-in-your-mouth delicious. It tastes like butter, I swear. Like good, grassfed butter. I know grassfed and pasture-raised can be expensive but if you can get a little of it here and there, it’s worth it!
And caramelizing the onions in the bacon grease? Inspired, if I do say so myself. The onions become so tender and smooth, and the sauce becomes almost velvety. Velvety onion goodness studded with bacon. On top of juicy seared pork chops. Do you believe me yet? Do I really need to sell you more on this meal? I loved it so much, I skipped dessert so I could have more. That, my friends, is an epic meal.
So what are you still doing here? Run. Run, I say. Run to your kitchen and make this. Go on, scram! You can thank me later.
