I’ve been trying to shake things up with our dinners lately. Mostly because Huff the Hubs take chicken for his lunch EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. This means he gets really tired of meals that involve chicken. SO I haven’t made the poultry in a looooong time. We both like pork, but it can be hard to find new ways to dress it up. After some perusing on Pinterest I found a yummy (and low-carb) pork recipe!
Here’s what you need:
6 thin boneless pork chops
1/3 cup dijon mustard
3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
3/4 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried basil
1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
First, mix your mustard, olive oil, garlic powder, thyme, onion powder, oregano, 1/4 tsp kosher salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and basil in a small bowl. This will be your marinade. Pour the marinade into a gallon-size Ziploc bag and add the chops. Let it refrigerate overnight. (I actually forgot to let this marinate overnight so mine only sat in the bag for about 15 minutes and still turned out great!)
The next evening, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Pour Parmesan cheese into a shallow dish and coat each pork chop on all sides. Place a flat roasting rack to a shallow dish or cookie sheet and then put the chops on the rack. (I didn’t have either of those so I borrow my sister’s turkey roasting rack, ha! I had to add foil to it so the chops wouldn’t fall through!) Then, season the chops with the remaining 1/4 tsp kosher salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes and serve!
You guys. This was soooooo good! Huff the Hubs and I LURVED it! I will absolutely be making this again!
