How to Make Keto Pork Chops with Creamy Mushroom?

To make this Keto Pork Chops with Creamy Mushrooms, you need to season the pork chops with salt and pepper, smoked paprika and garlic powder. Heat the skillet or pan, add olive oil and butter. Once the butter is melted, add in the pork chops. Sear them for 4-5 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Remove them from the skillet and set aside. Meanwhile, saute the garlic, mushrooms, thyme and parsley. Cook for about 2-3 minutes stirring constantly. Reduce the heat and add the heavy cream, salt and pepper to taste. Add a cup of spinach.

Sear the pork chops for 4-5 minutes on medium-high heat or until the edges are golden brown.

NOTES:

  • It’s okay to season the pork chops with just salt and pepper. That’s fine. But I figured that adding smoked paprika and garlic powder makes the meat even more flavourful.
  • Sometimes searing pork chops can be tricky, cooking depends on how thick your pork chops are. Just make sure that the edges of the pork chops are golden brown before removing them from the pan.
  • If you don’t have thyme (fresh or dried) and parsley, you can substitute them with oregano or Italian herbs. You can also add onion powder if you desired.
  • You can add more heavy cream if you like, my family likes more sauce so as you can see in the photos, the pork chops are nearly drowning with that delicious creamy mushroom sauce.
  • The spinach is a good addition to this dish. It doesn’t really affect the taste of the creamy sauce, but just add salt if it becomes bitter.
  • I add cheese to this recipe for a much thicker sauce.
