Ah, my first recipe after a LONG break from blogging. I'm lazy, but hey, I'm working on it...
I know I'm the PrimalBro, and it's a name I use proudly. The Primal lifestyle changed my life for the better. Many of my meals still fall under the Primal banner, but incorporating more of a Ketogenic diet has given me a real boost in the fitness and nutrition department.
But enough about me. Onto the pork chops!
I've eaten more pork chops than almost anyone I know for most of my life at this point. My dad is a HUGE pork chop fan. I'm not sure if he really likes it that much, or if he's just cheap, but either way...
I still eat a concerning amount of pork chops, and this is my go to recipe. When I was strictly Primal, eating this made me feel guilty because of the cheese. Now that I'm keto though, I've actually increased the amount of cheese in this recipe.
I hope you enjoy this cheesey, delicious recipe that almost couldn't be easier.
- 1 Pound Pork Chops (I ended up with 4 boneless chops)
- 1/4 cup Ground Flaxseed (or you could use pork rinds)
- 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
- 1 Egg
- Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder to taste
- Olive Oil for frying
1. Preheat oven to 400°F
2. In a mixing bowl, combine flaxssed, parmesan cheese, and spices
3. In a different bowl, whisk your egg
4. Dip each pork chop into the egg, then into the "breading"
5. Heat olive oil on MED-HIGH heat and fry pork chops for 1-2 minutes per side
6. Bake in preheated oven until internal temperature 150°F, about 10-15 minutes

I miss baked potatoes...
Now don't get me wrong, I'll do a potato every now and then. You may have seen my Garlic Parmesan Potatoes recipe a week ago, but I tend to run better on a generally lower carb diet.
Well now I can have the loaded baked potato flavors I miss without the sluggish feeling I get with too many carbs!
What if I told you you'd been cooking steak all wrong?
Reverse searing a steak is the absolute best method for cooking thick steaks to a tender, juicy finish! This requires some time in the oven followed by a quick stop in a screaming hot pan. Try this method of cooking steaks and you may never set foot in another steakhouse again!
Do you remember the laziness I talked about when I made my Cheesy Bacon Chicken Tenders? Well, it's back...
But I'm tired of chicken. It's time to restart my love affair with pork chops. I've also been on a cajun seasoning kick lately. Can you see how my brain works? Tender pork chops rubbed with cajun seasoning that provides a perfectly crisp crust with just enough kick! And it takes less than 20 minutes to experience this pure deliciousness!
I LOVE spicy food! No spicy food quite hits the mark like Cajun food. This cauliflower rice is an awesome, low-carb substitute for your favorite Cajun meals!
Cauliflower perfectly seasoned with sauteed onions, peppers, and just the right amount of heat. You'll never go back to rice again!
Do you ever just feel lazy? Me too! Like a lot...
Laziness is what gave birth to this delicious and, more importantly, easy recipe! Melted cheddar cheese sandwiched between tender chicken and crispy bacon. This is also a very flexible recipe making a great dinner, lunch, appetizer, pretty much any time! But when is there a wrong time for bacon!?
Uh-oh, I said it. Potato. A word disgraced in the Low-Carb/Keto world, and debated in the Primal/Paleo world. Good thing I don't put hard labels on my diet, because I get to enjoy these!
Sliced potatoes baked crisp with an amazing blend of spices goes perfect with delicious parmesan cheese. Throw in some bacon and this could be a meal all by itself! Seriously, if you have a pulse, you have to try these potatoes!
I couldn't do it... I just couldn't wait until Thanksgiving to have delicious, buttery turkey!
Fortunately I was able to find turkey breast tenderloin. This came out absolutely perfect! Nice and crisp on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside, and a wonderful buttery flavor. Just like a real Thanksgiving turkey, only better!
It's cold outside, and few things sound as good as warm, gooey mac & cheese.
So I decided to stop fighting temptation and have my mac & cheese, just slightly different. Cauliflower makes an awesome substitute for noodles (as if anyone didn't know already), and the gooey, homemade cheese sauce couldn't be more delicious.
This more than satisfied my mac and cheese craving, but it didn't do anything about the cold...
One of the few "bad" foods that still tempts me to this day is a spicy chicken sandwich from Chick-fil-a...
These chicken tenders are almost spot on in terms of flavor, without the bread of course! Just enough crunch, the perfect amount of heat, and soooo tender and juicy. Not only are these a great low-carb option, they are low calorie too! So go ahead and double up... or triple.. or eat all six servings. I'm not here to judge!
I love tacos, but I get sick of having the same old thing all the time.
You may have already seen my Taco Pizza recipe in my early days, but this is even better! It's a simple, delicious recipe that captures all the best flavors of a taco. Serve with all your favorite taco toppings and you may never go back to boring old tacos again!
