This is a very Easy tasty Pork Chop Dinner, In our fast paced lives sometimes good food seems impossible when your tired. Try this 15 minutes and your done, Low Carb Simple!
This Dish is made up of 5 Elements
1. The Chop
2. Mushrooms sliced in half
3. Package frozen Cream of Spinach …yes I said Frozen bare with me 🙂 This is only in a pinch!!! fresh recipe on bottom of Recipe post.
4. Olive Oil 2 TBL
5. Butter 1 TBL
6. Thyme 5 sprigs
First lets stick our Green Giant Simple Cream of Spinach in the Microwave, follow time on package.Youll want to cook this first to let it cool slightly before opening .
Next we need to slice our Mushrooms in half and put aside for now.
Ok Time for our Chops.
In a Medium Fry pan add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of Butter, turn burner on to medium high.Salt and Peper Chops on Each side. Add Chops to your Pan.
Get your Thyme and pull your leaves. Then Sprinkle onto Chops
Let the Chops Cook about 5 min each side, check to make sure they are not getting done too fast, according to the size of Chop is how long it takes. Mine are med. so I go 4 to 5 min each side. No pink juices then its done.
Remove Chops and add Mushrooms to pan and Saute for a minute or 2. Then Plate and Enjoy.
Now, the reason I used the shortcut on the Spinach was just that, if your crunched for time then have these in your freezer if not, Creamed Low Carb spinach from scratch is the way to go.
