Simple Pork Chops – AIP/Paleo/Primal

Hubby was working late last night, so I cooked for the girls much earlier than he and I ate.

What I made them was a nice easy to make dinner of pork chops that I briefly seared in a pan, then finished in the oven, served along side oven roasted carrots and beets and sauteed greens.

Quick, easy to make, very tasty and very healthy.  Both carrots and beets are rich in antioxidants and vitamins, as are the greens.

Simple Pork Chops

serves 4


4 pastured pork chops (we get ours from Spraggs Meat Shop)

sea salt

dried basil

dried oregano

1 tbsp fat of your choice (I used coconut oil)


This is the wonderful pork chops I used….


Preheat the oven to 220C/425F.  Heat up a large cast iron skillet on the stove top and add the fat.

While this is happening, season your pork with salt, and some dried basil and oregano.


Add them into the pan in a single layer and allow the bottom to brown.  Don’t try to flip them until they release from the surface of the pan.  This will take approximately 5 minutes.


Turn them over and give them an additional 5 minutes on the second side.


Then transfer the entire skillet to the oven.


Cook in the preheated oven for 5-10 minutes until the pork is cooked through.


I served these with roasted carrots and beets and some stirfried greens (Chinese Broccoli)


The general consensus from the girls was that it was delicious.
