Did you know there is poetry in a pork chop to a hungry man? Are you hungry? Prepare to be a poet then. *wink*

  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 1 medium star anise
  • 1 stalk lemongrass, peeled and diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, halved
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon almond flour
  • ½ tablespoon sugar-free ketchup
  • ½ tablespoon sambal chili paste
  • 1 ½ teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon five spice
  • ½ teaspoon peppercorns

  • How to prepare:
    1. Place the pork chops on a flat work surface and using a rolling pin wrapped in wax paper, pound to 1/2-inch thick.
    2. Half your garlic cloves and keep them to the side.
    3. Grind the peppercorns and star anise to a fine powder in a blender or using a mortar and pestle. Add the lemongrass and garlic, and pound or blend until puree forms. Add the fish sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil, and five-spice powder and mix well.
    4. Put the pork chops on a tray, add the marinade, and turn to coat. Cover and marinate at room temperature for 1-2 hours.
    5. Heat a pan to high and lightly coat your pork chops with almond flour.
    6. Add the chops to the pan and let them sear on both sides, turning once. This should take about 2 minutes on each side until a golden brown crust is formed.
    7. Transfer to a cutting board and cut each chop into several strips.
    8. To create a sauce, stir together the Sambal chili paste and sugar-free ketchup. Easy and delicious!
    9. Serve with Crisp Garlic Parmesan Green Beans or Low Carb Mashed Potatoes.
