  • 1 lb. / 450 g pork chops, sliced or pounded to 1/4” (6 mm) thickness
  • 2 eggs

  2. Beat eggs in a shallow bowl and set aside. Combine almond meal, tapioca flour, onion powder, and paprika in a second shallow bowl.
  3. Dip pork chops, one at a time, in beaten eggs and then dredge in almond meal mixture and set aside.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet on medium-high heat. Add half the pork chops to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, until the coating has browned and the internal temperature reaches 145° – 155°F /65C. Remove any burnt oil or coating from the pan and repeat with remaining oil and pork chops.
