Pork Chops with Mushroom Gravy

Serves 4

Carbs per serve - 6.5g

Ingredients:

1-1/2 teaspoons chili powder

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1-1/2 teaspoons onion powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon dried cilantro

1/2 teaspoon curry powder

1/2 teaspoon seasoned pepper

3 tablespoon butter, divided

4 center-cut pork chops

1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms

1 cup real coconut milk

METHOD:

Combine all of the spices together in a small bowl, mix well, and then set aside. If you combine them ahead of time, this makes a quick and easy dinner when time is rushed. Sprinkle the pork chops heavily with the spices and let them sit for at least 30 minutes.

In a large frying pan, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Add pork chops and brown well on each side, turning once or twice until almost cooked through. This will take about 15 to 20 minutes, depending on how thick your pork chops are.

While the pork chops are cooking, melt the rest of the butter in a small frying pan and sauté the mushrooms until wilted and cooked through.

Add the coconut milk to the mushrooms and stir.  Cook and stir until the sauce is thickened. If the mixture is too thick, you can add a little extra water or coconut milk to bring it to desired thickness.

Pour the sauce over the pork chops, cover the skillet and continue cooking until the pork chops are well done.
