Artichoke-Mushroom Pork Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy
Low carb recipe for Artichoke-Mushroom Pork which belongs to the Pork and Lamb recipe category.
- 1 pounds (680 g) boneless pork loin, cut into 4 slices across the grain
- 4 tablespoons (56 g) butter, divided
- 1 small onion, sliced
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 8 ounces (35 g) sliced mushrooms
- 1 can (14 ounces, or 400 g) quartered artichoke hearts, drained
- cup (120 ml) chicken broth
- 2 teaspoons Dijon or spicy brown mustard
Put a piece of pork into a heavy resealable plastic bag and pound until it is inch (6 mm) thick.
Repeat for the remaining pieces of pork.
Melt 2 tablespoons (28 g) of the butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat and brown the meat on both sides (about 4 minutes per side).
You'll have to do them one or two at a time.
Set the browned pork on a plate and keep it warm.
Add the rest of the butter to the skillet and add the onion, garlic, and mushrooms.
Saute until the mushrooms and onion are limp.
Add the artichokes, chicken broth, and mustard and stir around to dissolve the tasty brown bits on the bottom of the skillet.
Add the pork back into the skillet (you'll have to stack it a bit), cover, and let simmer for about 5 minutes.
Serve the pork with the vegetables spooned over the top.
