Apple Cider Pork

Apple Cider Pork, low carb version.

Sweet apple cider and ginger really compliment pork. Lightly brown the pork in olive oil over medium-high to high heat quickly so the pork doesn’t get tough. I hope you enjoy this if you try it. If you do, let me know how you change it up!

Simmering Pork

Simmering Pork

4 Pork Chops about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
olive oil
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
4 tbsp butter
4 tbsp soy sauce
1/8-1/4 cup beer to deglaze
1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
1/2 cup apple cider

Salt and pepper chops then brown quickly and lightly in olive oil over high heat. Once browned, lower heat to medium and add beer to deglaze the pan. Then add butter, soy sauce, ginger and cider and simmer for 10 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened. Slice chops and return to pan to coat. If your sauce is too thin, add flour or cornstarch in a bit of cold water to thicken. I try to keep my carbohydrates down so I didn’t thicken the sauce. Serve over egg noodles or a bed of mixed greens if you like to keep the carbs down.

I’ll post Macaroni Soup one of these days.  Kids love it, even though it looks kind of gross.

My mind was totally made up on a sauce of some kind.  So I threw a few things in a pot while I browned the pork (dusted with sea salt and freshly ground pepper) in olive oil.

Here’s what I came up with:

4 pork chops
