Stuffed Pork Chops – 5 Ingredients, 5 Minute Prep – Low Carb, Keto, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, THM S
We eat a lot of chicken in my house so when I change it up and buy pork instead everyone is happy. And I love cheesy stuffed anything. But making fancy stuffed meats can be too time-consuming for weeknights.
This meal seems so rich and indulgent no one will ever know it is low carb ‘diet’ food. Or that only takes you 5 minutes to prepare!
How to make Stuffed Pork Chops
The trick to this recipe is buying thin cut boneless pork chops. You are really just stacking two pork chops on top of each other with the filling in the middle. But they seem like a fancy thick cut restaurant quality pork chop when they are done.
If you can’t find thin cut pork chops you can slice regular boneless chops in half but it will add about 5 minutes on to the prep time.
What to serve with Stuffed Pork Chops
I served this with my Garlic Parmesan Zucchini! But you can serve it with any vegetable or salad. Here are some of our favorites:
Substitution Ideas for Stuffed Pork Chops
Cheese – You can sub in any type of sliced or shredded cheese for the provolone.
Vegetables – If you have leftover grilled or sauteed veggies go ahead and throw them in!
Herbs – Fresh herbs like basil or rosemary can really kick this up a notch.
Seasonings – Some of our favorite spices to use on pork are smoked paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder. I combine these with a little salt and it is amazing!
