Paleo Korean Pork Chops Recipe

A super delicious and quick #Paleo Korean-style pork chop recipe. Healthy, yummy, simple. My new favorite!

I love this Korean-style pork chop recipe for it’s savory flavors and enticing aroma. Pork chops are awesome, because they’re an economical way to add some variety to the typical chicken/beef Paleo menu.

The important thing to remember is that pork chops taste best when they’re juicy with flavors. There are two ways to ruin a pork chop…

  1. Not adding enough flavors
  2. Overcooking it until it’s dry

But aside from that, pork chops are very versatile and go well with a wide range of different flavors – from sweet to tangy.

I cook pork chops pretty frequently, so I always try to find new ways to make them and keep it interesting 🙂 This week, it’s these Korean-style pork chops, and they’re absolutely great!

Since they’re marinated, they come out very juicy and you don’t have to worry about them being dry. The marinade/sauce has an incredible combination of bright flavors, which is accomplished with a few simple Paleo ingredients: coconut aminos, honey, garlic, sesame oil, ginger and sriracha.

Super simple and fast to make, these Korean-style #Paleo pork chops melt in your mouth. Yum. #glutenfree #soyfree #whole30

They only need to marinate for about 20-30 minutes, so I usually get that started when I come home from work, and then once I’ve changed and had a chance to settle in for the night, I just take them out of the fridge, throw them on a skillet to get them golden and crispy on the outside, and then toss them in the oven for about 15 minutes until they’re done.

It’s a super fast dinner to make! And you know me… I love fast and easy dinners. As long as they’re Paleo, of course.

Serve these Korean pork chops with a side of cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles, or even a salad. They make great leftovers, too!
