BLT Pork Chops

BLT Pork Chops

Have you heard of the Primal Life Kit yet? You can buy $1500+ worth of products for only $39! Seriously. It’s for one week only, so be sure to check the sale out soon. I wrote a whole little post on it here.

Have you seen this video? How adorable is that? I’m not much of a cat person, because it’s hard to like something that leaves you puffy-eyed and sneezing (sorry cat lovers). I like this cat though. He lets that totally adorable and rambunctious puppy gnaw on his ear without fighting back. Takes it like a champ. Okay, I’ll talk about the recipe now.

Everyone love a good BLT sandwich. Am I right? Unless you don’t like bacon, they’re kind of hard to dislike. Aka unless you’re completely crazy. I’m just kidding (but I’m actually a little serious too). I actually have a friend who doesn’t like any pork products at all. It’s pretty insane. BLT pork chops would be a big no-go for her.

You may be thinking that  I merely wrapped a pork chop in bacon, served it with lettuce and tomato and called it BLT. Nope. These pork chops are stuffed with tomato, wrapped in bacon and served a top a salad or in a lettuce wrap. Simple enough to make on a busy weeknight, yet fun and flavorful to please the whole family. You really can’t go wrong with pork wrapped in pork.

Serve your pork chops with homemade mayo or avocado, and you have a filling, bread-free BLT.

Ingredients
  • 1½ Pounds boneless pork chops (about 4 chops)
  • ½ Cup grape tomatoes (halved)
  • 8 Slices of bacon
  • Lettuce to wrap
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut a slit on one long side of each pork chop. You don't want to butterfly the chops, but rather create a crevice to stuff the tomatoes into.
  3. Equally divide the halved tomatoes among the pork chops, and stuff them into the opening you created.
  4. Wrap each pork chop in two slices of bacon, overlapping to ensure they will stay wrapped.
  5. In a pan over medium-high heat, sear each side of the pork chops to render off the bacon fat (about 5 minutes).
  6. Place the pork on a lined baking sheet and bake until the bacon is browned and the pork chops are cooked through (about 20 minutes).
  7. Wrap each pork chop in lettuce or place a top a salad, serve and enjoy!
