Pork Chops with Green Apple Radish Salsa [Paleo, Keto, AIP]
I’ve always enjoyed the combination of pork and apples – the sweetness from the apple complements the pork flavor and the slight acidity from the fruit helps to cut through the fat in the meat.
In this dish, I’ve created a simple green apple radish salsa using green apples, water radishes, and ginger to go with some easy pan-fried pork chops. I also served the pork with some mustard for additional flavor.
You can use any cut of pork if you don’t have pork chops available. Pork tenderloin or pork loin steaks also works really well with this salsa. I wanted a really easy and quick dinner so I used a thin pork chop steak that is common in Europe. If you want to learn how to pan-fry pork tenderloin, then check out this recipe here.
Perhaps what’s best about this recipe is that it’s Paleo, Ketogenic (low carb), and AIP-friendly (just omit the mustard I suggest serving the pork with). So you can enjoy this easy and quick dinner recipe no matter what your dietary restrictions are.
Pork Chops with Green Apple Radish Salsa – Step-by-step Instructions and Photos
Dice the apple, ginger, and radish into really small pieces and mix together to create the salsa.
Pan fry the pork chops or other cut of pork (e.g., pork tenderloin or thin pork steaks) in some coconut oil. If you’re using thick cuts of pork, then make sure you get the pork to an internal temperature of 160 F (70 C) – check using a meat thermometer.
Serve the pork with the salsa and some mustard.
