Recipe: Paleo Fried Pork Chops

Daddy is a HUGE fan of fried pork chops. My gut is not a fan, at all, of wheat (or dairy) so I eat mostly Paleo. I wrapped my brain around the issue and came up with a Paleo friendly fried pork chop that is crunchy, juicy, and satisfies both Daddy and I. Even the kids like them!

Paleo Fried Pork Chops

Serves 4-6


  • 6 boneless pork loin chops, 1/2 inch thick (bone in chops work for this, too)
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seed
  • 1/2 cup raw almond flour


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  2. Rinse chops with water and pat dry.
  3. Season both sides of chops with salt and pepper. You may need more, or less, salt and pepper depending on taste.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
  5. In a small bowl scramble the eggs. Set aside.
  6. On a plate mix together the ground flax seed and raw almond flour. Set aside.
  7. Dredge one chop through eggs.
  8. Press egg coated chop into flax and almond mixture. Flip and press into mixture to coat other side. You may need to cover spots with the dry mixture.
  9. Place covered chop on plate and repeat steps 7 and 8 with the remaining chops.
  10. Place chops in pan with hot oil, in batches and don't crowd the chops. 
  11. Fry for 5 minutes then flip and fry another 5 minutes.
  12. Transfer fried chops to a rack on a pan and put them in the warmed oven.
  13. Add additional coconut oil and fry remaining chops for 5 minutes on each side.
  14. Transfer remaining chops to oven and prepare your sides for your meal, if needed.
  15. Serve warm.
