Pork Chops Recipe: Easy + Cheap + Low Carb + 3 Ingredients!

I had to come up with more than one pork chops recipe because Superman seems to have a slight crush on them.  If there’s ever a sale on pork loin, he can’t resist.  He proudly walks in the house with arms overloaded with freshly-sliced pork chops to place into the freezer. Bless!  As a result, here’s another simple pork chop recipe that you’ll love me to pieces for, my friend.

I’m cheating a little when I say that there are only 3 ingredients to add to the pork chops. There’s melted butter, grated Parmesan cheese, and spices.  I’m counting spices as one ingredient because this is where you can mix it up a little.  I used garlic powder, pepper, and a little salt. Feel free to experiment with your favorite spices as you please.

I kept hearing about a Parmesan-crusted pork chop recipe all around the web. I experimented to keep the flavor and lose the extra carbs that the traditional recipes have with breadcrumbs.  Score one for the Guru!

The ingredients and instructions for a printable recipe card are below but here’s the basic idea ->>>

After preheating the oven, you will dip pork chops into melted butter and then Parmesan cheese plus spices; place in the oven.  If you have a few extra minutes to soak the chops in the butter, that’s a bonus.  You’ll crank up the heat to add a little crispiness and brown around the edges the last five minutes.  I don’t do soggy!
