Keto Apple Pork Chops

Sharing is caring!

If you love the bitter taste of vinegar and the sweet taste of Apple Cider, these Keto Apple Pork Chops are perfect for you. If you're from the south, you've probably enjoyed applesauce covered pork chops a time or two, and one bite of these will bring back the memories of one of the pork's sweetest pairings.

 I grew up in the south, but it wasn't until I was a teen that I discovered that pork chops and applesauce make for one delicious country pairing. I was hooked after the first bite, but with keto, I had to leave behind some of my favorite meals including applesauce chops, but that hasn't stopped me. I am always looking for new ways to bring apples and pork chops back together and tonight's recipe had me reminiscing.

This recipe also reminds me of my favorite southern bbq because it has a vinegar base, so this one is a win-win for me, and my family loved it.

My parents came to visit over Christmas break, and they decided to follow me on this keto journey. They started Keto on Saturday and have collectively lost over 10 pounds! They were both in ketosis within two days (which shocked me), and my mom already has the keto flu.

I am currently visiting them, and I decided to help them out by doing all the cooking this week. My mom has also been begging me to build her a menu plan complete with shopping lists, so I have been working on that as well. Don't worry, as soon as it's ready I will be sharing it here with you as well!

Enough chit-chat, let's get this recipe started! Oh, and I made this recipe for eight people, so go ahead and cut it in half if you need to!

As you can see from the first photo, I could not fit all of the pork chops in the pan at once, so I cooked them five at a time and put them on a plate while cooking the remaining chops.

Once you have all of the pork chops cooked, you can layer them with onions and add your vinegar mix and repeat until all of your pork chops are in the pan. Don't forget to flip them and put the ones from the top of the pan on the bottom, so they all get moist.

 Note: I served these with apples for my children because I allow them to have more natural carbs than I eat. If you choose to serve them with apples, make sure you add them to your total carb count for this meal. 🙂
