Pork Chops

  • 4 bone-in pork chops about 2 pounds
  • 1 tbs avocado oil or ghee
  • 1 tbs sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Apple Compote

  • 2 large organic apples
  • 2 tbs avocado oil or ghee
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 400F. Pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel and season generously with sea salt, black pepper, and garlic powder on both sides. Set aside.
  • Dice apples. Season with sea salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • Heat avocado oil or ghee in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Once the skillet is hot, add the pork chops and let sit for 3 minutes. Flip and immediately place the hot skillet in the oven. Make sure to use hot pads since the skillet will be HOT!
  • Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes (longer for thicker chops). Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
  • Meanwhile, in a separeate skillet, heat ghee over medium-high heat. Add apples and saute until cooked through- about 5 minutes. Do not over cook or they will turn mushy!
