Pork Chops with Dijon Gravy, Cauliflower Rice, and Broccoli

For this week’s recipe, I went in search of something involving pork. Boneless pork chops were on sale at the store and I had bought a large pack. I wanted to cook once on Sunday and have leftovers all week.

I was researching on SkinnyTaste (one of my favorites) and came across her recipe for Pork Chops and Dijon Herb Sauce.

The basic recipe was there, but I wanted to push it even further and make it a true Ideal Protein/Low Carb/Keto recipe.

To edit the recipe I did a few things – I removed the onion, removed the butter, and used dried herbs versus fresh. The onion was removed because in Ideal Protein Phase 1 you are not supposed to have cooked onion. I removed the butter because you also not supposed to have that either. I used a non-stick cooking spray, but extra virgin olive oil would have worked too. The change in the herbs came down to the fact I didn’t get them at the store and I had dried available.

Even with these changes, the recipe turned out great! Super flavorful! I couldn’t even believe this was good for me!

I would love to hear from you if you try this recipe! Take a picture and tag My Beautiful Ideal on Instagram so I can see the outcome!
