Almond Crusted Pork Loin

Almond Encrusted Boneless Pork Loin

I was at the store today and saw these beautiful boneless pork loins and because they were begging me to buy them ~ I did. 🙂  I was in the kitchen all day and the idea of making one more dish was going to get the better of me but I wanted them for dinner so I decided why go too complicated and I used my old breading standby.  I must say most breading (no pun intended!!) can be pretty bland, but I really like the seasoning here because it packs a good palate punch without going over board but if you want to go Goldie Hawn and go overboard with the seasoning then by all means knock yourself out!

Almond Encrusted Boneless Pork Loin
Save Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless center cut pork loin chops
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 3/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Ghee

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  2. In a small bowl combine almond flour, cayenne pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, salt & pepper, pour out onto a plate or shallow wide bowl.
  3. Rinse and pat dry your pork chops and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
  4. In a large skillet over medium heat add your ghee, oil, or lard and wait about 30 seconds to bring to temperature (you want your pan preheated so you can get a nice sear-something that cannot be achieved correctly in a cold pan).
  5. Meanwhile dredge your pork chops in your flour mixture and shake any excess off and lay in pan-careful not to overcrowd.
  6. Better to sear in batches then all at one time otherwise you will be steaming and not browning.
  7. Leave your chops alone for 5 minutes, flip and cook another 4 and transfer to a cooking rack set within/over a cookie sheet (if you do not have the rack do not worry but it does ensure a crispy coating on both sides).
  8. Place in oven to finish cooking and achieve temperature figure about 20 minutes depending on the thickness of your meat.
