Creamy Garlic Parmesan Keto Pork Chops

I try to cook a variety of different meals and meats each week, but it’s so easy to get in a rut and cook the same things over and over. While I like Pork Chops, they aren’t usually my first choice. However, this Creamy Garlic Parmesan Keto Pork Chop recipe just might have changed my mind. This low carb dish is easy delicious and can be on the table in 30 minutes or less.

Can I Eat Pork Chops on a Keto Diet?

Yes! Pork Chops are keto-friendly and can be prepared in many different ways such as in a slow cooker, Instant Pot (electric pressure cooker), air fryer, cast-iron skillet, baked in the oven, or on the grill. Fatty meats are a staple of the keto diet for most, so pork chops are an excellent choice.

This skillet pork chop is easy to prepare. Follow the added tips in this picture tutorial, and you’ll master this recipe quickly.

Tip: Begin this recipe by heating the cast iron skillet on medium-high heat then add the olive oil and allow it to get nice and hot before adding the pork chops. Next, sear the pork chops in the skillet for a few minutes on each side. It’s essential to get a good sear to seal in the juices and for added flavor. If they feel like they are sticking to the pan, it’s a sign they aren’t ready to turn. Leave them a bit longer, and they will turn over easily. Although I generally use boneless thin-cut pork chops in this recipe, bone-in pork chops or thick-cut boneless are options as well. In either case, the cooking time may need to be adjusted.

    1. Sure. It will change the nutritional info, but you can certainly double the sauce. You may need to simmer it a bit longer for it to reduce properly.

    Awesome! Thanks for sharing this. Hubby loved it too! One question: I assume the break-down of nutrients listed on the recipe is per serving but it doesn’t specify. Am I correct?

    Super delicious! Everyone loved it, and even sopped up the sauce with bread. 😊
    My pan wasn’t large enough to brown all the chops at once, so I did shifts. Then I made the sauce, poured it over the chops and baked them. We all agreed, this is a keeper!

    This has been one of my family’s go-to recipes for the past couple years. I’d say we eat it at least once or twice per month. It is incredible and a dish that our whole family enjoys, including all 4 kids, (even the picky toddler)! I really like it with mushrooms added. We often drizzle a little of the remaining sauce over green beans, broccoli, or cauliflower and it’s a hit!

    1. Thank you so much for sharing! That is amazing you’ve made it so many times and all your kids enjoy it. 🙂

    Of all the recipes I’ve ever followed on the net this was so amazing, I had to leave a review, something I’ve literally NEVER done… We love to eat chops and this is our new favorite! I can definitely see adding mushrooms to this and use it for any meat really… And that sauce…. Drizzled on top of the side of veggies…. I can’t believe I lose weight eating amazing rich meals like this!?

    Thank you 🙂
