Pork Chops on Keto

Pork chops are an awesome choice for the keto diet. So long as you don’t go the shake and bake route or cover your perfectly delicious meat with a bunch of breading, you’re looking at a zero carb cut of meat. Per 100 grams, there are zero carbs, 22.49g protein, and 4.05g fat. With macros like that, you have room to add a fatty side dish or even work it into a PSMF if you’re into that kind of thing.

Can you cook meat in a slow cooker without liquid?

You don’t need liquid in the crockpot or slow cooker. Think about the set-up of a crockpot: the lid is on, the steam is rising from the food but it can’t escape, the inside becomes extremely wet, and condensation pools on the lid and up the sides. The moisture cooked from the meat doesn’t have anywhere to go; it doesn’t steam off the way it does with other cooking methods. This helps keep the meat moist without basting and additional fluid.

  • These pork chops are amazing! Made them for dinner & we could not stop saying how good they are. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
    P.S. Roasted brussel sprouts & sauteed green beans compliment these chops perfectly!

  • Is there a specific chop (bone in vs boneless) that is preferred? Also is there a preferred method when arranging the chops in the crockpot? Laying down, stacking, standing? Can’t wait to try this recipe!

    • I used a boneless ribeye chop b/c they are thicker. Any thick cut chop will do, bone in or boneless. And i layered mine in a staggered fashion so they werent directly on top of each other. Enjoy!

    The spice blend was delish! I over slow cooked the pork but that’s my fault. I enjoyed the Indian flare!

    • Hi Elizabeth! Thanks for the comment. I haven’t personally tried this specific recipe with a boneless pork roast, but I have slow cooked one before. The best results are usually on low for about 8-10 hours, low and slow. Cooking at higher temps and shorter times tend to yield chewy results. I think it might be worth browning the pork roast prior to slow cooking it as well, a step not included in this recipe but one that is common with the pork roast cut.

      If I was to make this with a pork roast instead of chop, I’d season the meat with a little salt and pepper, then brown the roast on all sides in a hot pan on the stovetop. I’d apply the spice rub afterwards and then slow cook in the crockpot on low for about 8-10 hours.

      Hope that helps!
