Pan-Grilled Pork Chops for a Quick Gluten-Free Meal
Pan-Grilled Pork Chops, lightly seasoned and golden-browned, always entice me with their aroma, and since they’re boneless, they cook fast to make a gluten-free dinner that everyone enjoys.
The pan juices are flavorful and work well to spoon over the chops when served. If you don’t thicken the gravy, this is a great gluten-free and low-carb dish.
If you like, you can thicken the juices to make delicious, very lean, gluten-free pork chop gravy. It may taste rich, but this meal is ideal for a lean, gluten-free diet .
I like to use this for a gluten-free meal that can be on the table in about 15 minutes.
Gluten-Free Pan-Grilled Pork Chops with Gravy
1 Pound Boneless Pork Chops, cut 1/2″ to 3/4″thick
1 Teaspoon Oil
1 1/2 Teaspoons Seasoned Salt (or GF Onion Soup Mix, or other seasonings like salt, pepper, onion salt, garlic salt, celery salt, etc…) to taste
1/2 Cup Water, to deglaze pan, or make gravy
For Optional Gravy:
1 Cup Pan Juices Combined With Water
2 Tablespoons Sweet Rice Flour
1/4 Teaspoon Salt, to taste
Spread oil in bottom of a heavy-bottomed skillet.
Season with seasoned salt, gluten-free onion soup mix or with your choice of seasonings (salt, pepper, onion salt, garlic salt, celery salt…).
Place pork in pan over medium heat.
Cook for about 3-4 minutes. Turn.
Continue cooking until tender and cooked through, so that an instant-read thermometer registers 145 °F.
Remove chops to plate and keep warm.
Add water to deglaze skillet, then pour over chops for a delicious low-carb dish, or use make gravy as follows.
To Make Optional Gravy:
Mix sweet rice flour with the liquid and stir into pan.
Add more hot water a tablespoon or two at a time if needed to adjust thickness.
Season to taste.
Makes 3 or 4 servings.
Here is a useful chart I found of Guidelines From the USDA on
IN SKILLET ON STOVE Thickness Cooking Time Temperature
Loin Chops or Cutlets ¼-inch or ¾-inch 3-4 minutes or 7-8 minutes 145 °F and allow to rest for at least 3 minutes
Tenderloin Medallions ¼ to ½-inch 4 to 8 minutes
Ground Pork Patties ½ inch 8 to 10 minutes 160 °F
The above link also has much other information about cooking pork safely.
This gluten-free recipe is designed for those with gluten intolerance, gluten sensitivity, or celiac disease, but I’ve found that people who have no food allergies like it, too. It is wheat-free, barley-free and rye-free. Also, it is casein-free, dairy-free, egg-free, lactose-free, low-carb (without the thickened gravy), nut-free and refined sugar-free.
