Day 21-31 Days of Samhuinn Cooking-Low Carb Grilled Pork Chops with Chive Cream

This recipe is an adaptation of a South Beach diet recipe.  I adjusted the flavors, sorry but lemon extract is just...bleah.  I prefer natural oils fresh from the peel.  Also, trying to reduce the fat content I subbed coconut milk (the new rage coconut milk now found in the dairy aisle, not the canned stuff you find in asian food aisle)

Low Carb Grilled Pork Chops with Chive Cream

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 shallot, crushed
1 clove garlic, crushed
3 pounds pork chops (4 large chops)


1 cup coconut milk
grated peel of 1/2 lemon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/4 cup minced fresh chives

In a shallow pan, stir together oil, salt, pepper, and shallots. Place pork chops in pan, coat with marinade on both sides, and let rest for 15 to 30 minutes.

Chive Cream: In a small saucepan over medium heat, place coconut milk and lemon peel. Simmer until reduced by about one third; keep warm over low heat. Just before serving, season with salt and pepper, then stir chives into warm cream sauce.

Prepare a charcoal fire or preheat broiler. Place pork chops on grill or under broiler, about 4 inches from heat, and cook until browned on one side (about 4 minutes). Turn and cook second side until lightly browned and slightly firm. Serve chops immediately, drizzled with Chive Cream.

Makes 4 servings
