Paleo Pork Recipes like Paleo Pork Chops with Mushroom Gravy


                                         Paleo Pork Chops with Mushroom Gravy = yum!

I put a good bit of coconut oil in my pan and let it heat up.

I sprinkled lots of almond flour, Cherry Wood Smoked Sea Salt, (from salttraders.com) and pepper on some thick-cut pork chops and browned them on both sides. I took them out of the pan and set them aside.


At this point I added to the pan:
1 TBSP of coconut oil (there was some still in there, along with the brown bits from the pork shops)
2 TBSP grass fed butter
1 white onion, diced
2 cloves garlic

I cooked this and loosened all the bits in the skillet all along.
Next, I added:
1 large container sliced mushrooms (your favorite - I used Crimini)
 1/4 cup chicken stock
1 can organic coconut milk
sea salt and pepper, to taste (a sprinkle of rosemary, or thyme, too, if you like)
I turned this up and cooked it until it thickened up some.

When I'm in a hurry, I add 1 tsp arrowroot flour just to hurry up the thickening process.

            See? There's no grain. The almond flour and coconut milk thicken things up very nicely. Also, if you don't need this much gravy, you can use less coconut milk and it will thicken up more quickly.

I placed the pork chops back into the gravy and put a lid on it. I turned it down to low and let it simmer for 10-15 more minutes just to make sure those pork chops got nice and tender.  Wow. So worth it!
