 Velvet Pork Chops: The very best way to eat pork chops; tender with a flavorful, low carb, gluten free gravy!

I will start this post with a confession. I really don’t like pork chops. At least I said that before I ate Velvet Pork Chops. Now I love them!

These are so tender and flavorful and this gravy–oh my! I am not really a gravy lover either but this changed all of that.

Velvet Pork Chops opened a whole new area of eating for me to enjoy.

And did I tell you they are low carb and gluten free?

This is definitely a recipe everyone needs to try. They are pictured here with Baked Cabbage and Onions and Low Carb Jalapeno Cheese Biscuits–delicious!

This recipe came from Christy Jordan at SouthernPlate. These are my words and pictures but it is her recipe. I changed the ingredient measurements to have more gravy. I mean, who doesn’t like more gravy? 🙂 

Ingredients for Velvet Pork Chops:

Velvet Pork Chops ingredients

1/2 lb boneless pork chops

Salt and pepper to taste

2 Tbsp butter

1 cup chicken broth

½ cup heavy whipping cream

Directions for Velvet Pork Chops:

Melt the butter over medium high heat in a skillet. Add the chops and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

When the chops are browned, flip, season with salt and pepper again and cook the second side until browned.

Add the chicken broth to the skillet, reduce the heat to medium and cook until the broth has mostly evaporated. This will take about 10 minutes and the meat will be cooked too.

Remove the meat from the skillet, turn off the heat and leave the skillet on the burner.

Pour the cream into the skillet and stir constantly with a wooden spoon to get all of the contents of the skillet combined with the cream. In a few minutes, it will be a hot, thick, creamy sauce.

Spoon sauce over chops and serve.
