Cocoa Fried Pork Chops

Peanut Butter & Jelly, Bread & Butter, Steak & Mashed Potatoes… Chocolate & Pork?

Yes, I realize that last association isn’t typical.  But so many things about the Primal lifestyle aren’t “typical” … when has that label ever held us cavemen and women back?  So after buying a pack of pork chops from the grocery store this weekend, I decided to give the crazy combination a try.  And I must say: it was surprisingly good!

Cocoa Fried Pork Chops

  •  ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 4 thinly sliced pork chops
  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil

Mix the coconut flour, cocoa powder, salt and pepper together in a medium-sized bowl.  In a separate bowl, whisk the egg until the yolk and the white are well-mixed.

In a large frying pan, heat your coconut oil over medium heat.  When the oil is hot dip your pork chops into the whisked egg until they are completely covered, then immediately drench them in the coconut/cocoa mixture until they are once again completely covered.  Place them on the hot frying pan and cook for approximately 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are cooked through.  Enjoy  🙂
