Ingredients

For Pork Chops

  • 2 oz pork rinds or about 4 cups
  • 4 boneless pork chops about 5 ounces each
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

For Sautéed Mushrooms

  • 5 cups sliced white button mushrooms
  • 2 tsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

For Mashed Cauliflower

  • 5 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp dried chives
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  • Add pork rinds to a food processor and pulse until finely crumbled. Transfer to a shallow bowl and stir in seasonings. In a separate shallow bowl, beat egg. Blot pork chops dry with paper towel and dunk in egg shaking off excess. Dredge on both sides in pork rind mixture and place in basket of air fryer. Repeat with remaining chops, leaving a small gap between each pork chop for air flow. Air fry at 400ºF for 12 minutes. Turn chops and fry 11-12 minutes longer.
  • While pork chops fry prepare mashed cauliflower and balsamic mushrooms. For Cauliflower: heat 4 cups of water in a large pot over medium-high heat until boiling. Add cauliflower florets and boil for 10-12 minutes, until very tender. Strain and return to pot with butter, garlic, chives and salt. Use a potato mash to mash cauliflower. Divide between 4 (1 cup) compartments of white MPOF containers.
  • For Mushrooms: Heat 2 teaspoons of butter over medium heat in a medium pan and add mushrooms, sauté for 8 minutes. Add garlic and sauté 2 minutes longer. Stir in thyme, sea salt and balsamic vinegar and simmer for 3 minutes longer. Divide between 4 (1 cup) white MPOF compartments. Place 1 pork chop in 4 large (2 cup) compartments.
