Keto Pork and Green Bean Meal Prep

23 ratings

Almost as good as a holiday dinner! Enjoy this original recipe for 2, or you can double up the servings to have enough for your weekly meal prep. Pork chops are paired with tender green beans and a creamy, salty gravy. The only thing that’s missing is a slice of pumpkin pie!

Recipe Steps

23 min

  • Step 1

    Prepare the pork chops by seasoning them with the first amount of salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Heat the first amount of olive oil in a pan roughly the same size as the amount of pork chops. Place the pork chops seasoned side down in the oil and cook for about 4 minutes on medium-high heat. Flip the chops over. Chop the first amount of butter into small dollops and place them on top of the cooking pork chops. Squeeze the lemon juice into the pan pan cook for another 4 minutes - until the chops are cooked all the way through.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Set the pork chops aside to cool, leaving all excess fats in the pan. Melt the second amount of butter into the pan over a low heat. Stir in the cream and whisk until the fats have emulsified.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Stir the second amount of salt and the xanthan gum into the gravy. Cook on a very low heat until the gravy has thickened and absorbed the xanthan. Set the gravy aside to cool.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    In a new pan, heat the second amount of olive oil over medium heat. Place fresh green beans (chopped if desired) in the hot oil. Season with the remaining spices. Continually toss the green beans in the oil until they turn bright green, tender, and have browned edges.
    Step 5
  • Step 6

    Serve each pork chop with green beans and about ⅛ cup of warm gravy.
    Step 6

    Swapped the green beans for asparagus because my family strongly dislikes green beans. It was a hit. the flavors were amazing and I will absolutely be making this dish again.

      Wonderful flavors. I did steam the green beans before adding them to the oil to brown them. I didn’t think the recipe gave enough cooking time to get them to the tender stage

          This was Amazing!! My husband says what "keto tonight" he loved it 🤩 The flavors are great! I didn't have xanthan gum so I substitute a teeny bit of egg white. Perfect recipe thank you!!

                  If you want to impress company, make this meal. I made a mistake and bought pork loin and pounded it to make it a bit thinner. The best!!!! The sauce is to die for. Yum.

                        This was amazing! Will definitely make again. The green beans are just spicy enough to complement the flavour of the pork and the sauce. My husband went back for seconds.

                            This was amazing. When I tasted the gravy in the pan I didnt like the taste of it so I put a small spoonful on. I sat down took a bite with the pork and gravy it was si good I went back and pit a ton of gravy on it. Will definatly be making this again
