Cherry Chops Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy

Low carb recipe for Cherry Chops which belongs to the Pork and Lamb recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 4 thin pork chops, about 18 ounces (500 g) total
  2. Salt and pepper
  3. 1 tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil
  4. cup (55 g) canned tart cherries in water (pie cherries)
  5. 1 tablespoon (15 ml) wine vinegar
  6. teaspoon dry mustard
  7. teaspoon ground cloves
  8. 1 tablespoons (2 g) Splenda
  9. teaspoon guar or xanthan
  10. cup (40 g) slivered almonds
  11. tablespoon butter

Cooking Instructions

Sprinkle salt and pepper over the chops lightly on both sides and start browning them in the oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat.

Give them about 5 minutes per side.

While that's happening, put the cherries, vinegar, mustard, cloves, Splenda, and guar or xanthan in a blender and puree the whole thing together.

(If you'd prefer to keep the cherries whole, you could just mix everything together well.

I like it pureed.

) It's time to turn the chops now! While the chops are browning on their second side, start browning the almonds in the butter in a small skillet over medium heat.

Stir frequently so they don't burn; you just want a touch of gold.

When the almonds are toasted, remove the pan from the heat.

When the second side of the chops is browned?again, after about 5 minutes?pour the cherry sauce over them, turn the heat to medium-low, and cover the skillet with a tilted lid.

Let the whole thing simmer for 5 minutes and serve.

Scrape the sauce from the skillet over the chops and top each with toasted almonds.
