Cumin Crusted Pork Chops

Keto Recipes > Keto Dinner Recipes

Who can resist a crispy pork chop that’s tender and juicy in the middle? You’ll have some great eastern flavors coming together in this dish and I’m sure you’ll be adding this one to your meal plan!

I highly suggest cutting this into thin strips once the pork has been resting for at least 7 minutes after cooking. That way you aren’t overwhelmed with the spices. The fragrant hints of cumin are instant when this touches your mouth. Once you start to chew, the crispy texture of the crust comes through and the delicious juices are released. As you continue to chew, the floral notes of the coriander and cardamom come through, balancing out all of the earthy notes of the cumin.


This is just a plain delicious dish, and the vegetables compliment it perfectly. The crisp, fresh notes of the wine and vegetables is a great counterpoint to the deep and earthy notes that the pork carries. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your meal!

Yields 3 Servings of Cumin Crusted Pork Chops with Vegetables

The Preparation


  • 1 ½ pounds pork chops
  • ¼ cup golden flaxseed
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 1 medium orange pepper

2. Dip the pork chops into the crust mixture, making sure to coat every side of the chops.


3. Heat 3 Tbsp. Coconut Oil in a cast iron skillet on medium-high heat. If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, you can get the same one as me for $23.


4. Once the oil is hot, add your pork chops to the pan.


5. While the pork chops are cooking, prep your vegetables by chopping 1 Orange Pepper, 1/2 Onion, and 2 Stalks Celery.


6. Flip pork chops over and reduce heat to medium-low. Continue cooking until pork chops reach an internal temperature of 145F.
