Pork chops might be one of our favorite things to prepare – these simple and inexpensive cuts are extremely easy to work with, making them perfect for less experienced grillers.

Grilled Garlic And Chive Pork Chops

Don’t let the ease and low preparation time for this dish fool you, though – this is a delicious and filling meal, and it works perfectly for even the pickiest diner. You’ll also reap the nutritional benefits of pork, which is filled with things like healthy protein and Omega-3s, which are essential for a healthy diet.

One of the ingredients that may not be as familiar is ghee, especially if you are fairly new to Paleo cooking. Ghee is essentially butter but with things like milk, protein and sugar removed.

This makes it an awesome option for those who like the taste of butter and are used to using it in their cooking but are making the switch to omitting dairy from their diet. Ghee probably won’t be available in large, chain supermarkets – try specialty groceries or Indian food markets instead.

Another option is to make ghee yourself – it really isn’t that hard or time-consuming, and you can make this in larger batches for future use.

This pork chop dish has a simple flavor palette, making it a great option when you are creating a more complicated side dish that you’d like to feature. For this type of meal, try preparing this Dijon and pecan asparagus – it’s still fairly simple but adds a burst of flavor to your plate.
