These Keto Balsamic Pork Chops are lightly breaded with a hint of rosemary, pan fried, and glazed in a delicious sweet and tangy balsamic sauce.
This Balsamic Pork Chop Recipe was given to me from a family friend years ago after my hubby and got married and it's still one of our favorites! It's slightly breaded, tender, juicy, has a slight hint of rosemary with a balsamic glaze, and is super easy! I only had to make a few simple changes to make it Paleo, Keto, & Gluten free - but it's still just as good as the original! Here are the easy steps:
Easy Steps For Keto Balsamic Pork Chops
Start by whisking together the breading ingredients - almond flour, rosemary, salt, and pepper.
Dredge the pork chops in the flour mixture and shake off the excess flour.
Brown the pork chops over medium heat in a large skillet until golden, around 4 minutes. Don't worry if the chops are cooked through at this time.
Be sure not overcrowd the pan and cook in batches if needed. After all the pork chops are browned, set them aside on a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
Add an additional Tbsp of oil to the hot skillet. Add 2 cloves of garlic to the skillet and allow to cook for 15 to 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Then, stir in some chicken broth and balsamic vinegar. Allow to cook for about 6 minutes, or until liquid is reduced by about half.
Return the pork chops back to the skillet. Cover and cook another 5 minutes, or until the chops are cooked through. Serve garnished with fresh rosemary and enjoy!!!
