Fresh is Best!
For the holidays, we got a small rosemary plant as a gift and didn’t hesitate to take a knife to it right away and cook up some low carb rosemary dishes!
One of the recipes we came up with was this keto rosemary apple pork chops recipe! It’s a simple recipe that used a basic, seared pork chop with the added flavors of apple and rosemary. We started it off in the cast iron skillet for that crisp, outer skin and finished it off in the oven until it was perfectly cooked. You don’t get a lot of sweetness on a keto diet, so when you allow yourself some fruit, you can really appreciate its natural sweetness. The small amount of sliced apple we used while baking these pork chops added some amazing sweetness that complimented the robust flavor of the pork very well. The way the apple denatured a bit in the high temperature of the oven created an amazing texture compared to the tough pork. And of course, the fresh-cut rosemary scent filled our kitchen the second we put it in the oven. It was the perfect combination for pork chops!
We also whipped up a quick apple cider vinaigrette to enjoy with the pork chops. It played off the baked apples in the dish and added some moisture to the chops.
