Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Start by making the herb butter. Mix all the ingredients and set aside.
  2. Take the chops out of the refrigerator and bring to room temperature. Rub the chops with Ranch seasoning, and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C) preferably with the broiler on.
  4. Trim and rinse the cauliflower and cut it in ½-inch slices with a sharp knife.
  5. Place the cauliflower on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the slices with olive oil on both sides, and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese on top, and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
  7. In the meantime, fry the chops in butter over medium high heat until cooked through, about 4-5 minutes on each side.
  8. Let the chops sit for a few minutes before serving with the cauliflower and herb butter.

Tip!

If you have an outdoor grill going, use that instead for even more flavorful chops. Make sure to brush with olive oil to avoid sticking to the rack. Skip the parmesan cheese for a dairy-free dish. Also, you can add different herbs to the butter to create your own unique combination of flavors. Try fresh oregano, dill, or even a bit of rosemary!

    I could only buy Goats Cheese for the burger in Week 5 in portions of 100g so instead of butter on top of the pork, I put the remaining 50g of goats cheese and it was fantastic.

    Why is the herb butter recipe different from the recipe that you get linked to on other pages? Also just a tip but 1/2 tablespoon of something is actually 1 1/2 teaspoon. You'll drive North Americans crazy using half tablespoons.
