  • Successful nearly-primal recipe conversion

    Pulled this recipe out of my "New Good Housekeeping Cookbook": Herb-Coated Pork Chops with Apple and Onion Saute.

    Breaded Pork Chops

    1/3c plain bread crumbs (I subbed almond meal)

    1/4t Salt

    1/4t Pepper

    1/4t dried thyme

    1 large egg

    4 bone-in pork chops (i just had boneless thick cut chops)

    * combine almond meal, salt, pepper and thyme.

    * dip chops in beaten egg, then dredge in dry mixture

    * Cook under broiled 4-6 minutes per side, or until cooked

    Apple and Onion Saute

    2t olive oil

    2 medium onions, sliced

    2 granny smith apples; cored and wedged

    2t light brown sugar (i actually used regular white sugar, but you could even leave it out, because of the apples themselves are pretty sweet)

    1/4t salt

    1/4t pepper

    1/4t dried thyme

    1/4c water

    2t cider vinegar

    * heat oil and onions in saute pan, until lightly browned

    * add apples, brown sugar, salt, pepper, thyme

    * continue cooking and stirring until apples and onions are tender.

    * stir in water and cider vinegar

    * spoon over pork chops to serve

    The almond meal kinda worked as a substitute for bread crumbs. You could also grill the pork chops for a different texture, but pan-frying with an almond meal crust doesn't work out too well.
