Ingredients

  • 2 Tbls Avocado Oil or oil of choice
  • 4 Pork Chops Bone-in
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tbls Ghee
  • 1 Cup Button Mushrooms cleaned & sliced
  • 3 Leeks sliced, half rounds, only the light green and white part
  • 3 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 1/2 Cup Chicken Broth
  • 1 Cup Coconut Milk full fat
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 2 Tbls Fresh Parsley
  • 1 Tbls Tapioca Starch optional

Instructions

  • Heat large skillet over medium/high heat and add avocado oil
  • Season pork chops liberally on both sides with salt, pepper and garlic powder
  • Once the pan is nice and hot, brown chops well on both sides for about 5 minutes a side and then remove from pan and set aside
  • Carefully wipe the pan and add some ghee, turn the heat to medium and add in the sliced mushrooms
    Sauté for 3-5 minutes, until nicely browed and then add in the leeks and garlic, sauté another 2 minutes
  • Add in the broth, coconut milk and paprika. Bring to a boil and then reduce sauce to a simmer
    Add the pork chops back into the sauce and cover with lid. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes, until pork chops are cooked through (should be 145' internal temp)
  • If the sauce is not thick enough, you can remove the pork chops and then add in a tapioca starch slurry. The slurry is made with 1 Tbls tapioca starch + 1 Tbls room temp water. Whisk it together and then add it to the simmering sauce. It should thicken fairly quickly.
  • Taste the sauce for seasoning and add in more salt and pepper as needed
  • Serve over mashed potatoes or cauliflower mash, top with fresh parsley
