Pork Chop With Apples Recipe

Hi guys,

It’s been a little while! I’ll be posting a Paleo catch up blog over the next couple of days but I figured the most important thing was to get this amazing Chris Kresser recipe up on here for you to try!

So, here it is.

Paleo Pork Chop with Apple Gravy

Serves 4


  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 pork chops, bone-in
  • 2 TB lard, divided (I used coconut oil or olive oil – I can’t remember but either will work well!)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup chicken broth (You can cook your own or I used Knorr as a pretty good substitute)
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored, and cut into slices
  • 1 large onion, sliced thin


  1. Rinse and pat dry the pork chops. Season to taste with salt and pepper (go easy on the salt) and sear on each side for 4 minutes in a pre-heated pan
  2. Set these aside on a warm plate

  3. Remove any left over ‘brown bits’ from the pan and add the other half of oil/lard
  4. Throw in pre-chopped onions and apples, cook for about 5-8 minutes until softened
  5. Stir in the garlic and cook for another minute or so
  6. Add the chicken stock
  7. Add the pork chops back to the pan with their meat juices (this helps make the yummy gravy!), covering the chops in the apples and onions

  8. Cover the pan and reduce to medium-low heat. Simmer until tender, about 15 to 20 minutes
  9. Remove the pork chops once cooked back to the warm plate
  10. Simmer the left over juices on a medium heat until it reduces to a gravy
  11. Eat and Enjoy!!
