Paleo Cooking: Pork Loin Chop Recipes

Pork is a fantastic meat because it’s lean and great tasting on its own. Having said that though, making great tasting meals is part of the paleo diet lifestyle, and pork can be shifted into high gear simply by adding few ingredients.

Paleo Mustard Pork Loin Chop Recipe

This is one of my favourite  eating meats  in the world, pork loin chops work so well as a meal to span out over multiple days too. If you cook lots of chops you can  take them to work with you!  That would make those co-workers jealous!

What you’ll need:

  • Pork loin chops
  • Whole-grain mustard
  • Olive oil
  • Salt

How to prepare:

Simply drizzle the pork chops with olive oil when they are at room temperature, smear them with whole grain mustard and add salt if you think it could use some. I usually don’t add salt, but pork and salt go very well together.

How to cook:

Heat up the oven to around 180C/350F and use some sort of griddle pan to cook the chops. Make sure it’s hot when you put them in. Cook for around 5 minutes a side or however long you deem necessary. Server hot with mixed steamed veg and you’ll impress anyone with how simple and delicious pork meat is.

As you can see, I like simple recipes with minimum amounts of ingredients. The whole-grain mustard in this recipe will make the pork taste amazing. My mouth is actually watering thinking about the flavour right now.

Stuffed Pork Loin Chops

This one is a little different. You’ll need to find some super fat chops in order for this to work properly, but when it does man o man its delicious.

What you’ll need:

  • Thick pork loin chops
  • Olive oil
  • Salt

For the stuffing:

  • Spinach leaves and if it’s a cheat day, feta. Since this is about delicious food, I’m going to say include the feta.
  • Mix up some feta and spinach in a bowl. Break the spinach up with your fingers and do the same for the feta. Keep one side.

How to prepare

  • Make an incision length ways in the the  side  of the pork loin chop,about one thumb width is good.
  • Stuff the spinach and feta mixture into the chop with your fingers. Don’t be  afraid  to really fill it up.

How to cook:

  • Cook on a medium heat on the stove in a pan with some more olive oil or bake at 180C/350F. Either way will produce awesome results.

Serve on a base of sweet mashed potatoes or cauliflower and steamed veg. This is honestly an amazing dish to make for anyone.  Definitely  going onto my  hight recommended  list!

 

Don’t be afraid to experiment with things like stuffing foods which you wouldn’t have ordinarily thought could be stuffed such as pork loin chops or even steaks. Stuffed chicken breasts are delicious as well, so you should investigate that option as well. I’ll do a post on my very own recipe sometime!

As always,

Keep well,
Andrew.
