This is a great low-carb dinner for two and it's so simple! Juicy pan roasted pork chops finished in the oven and then served with crisp tender green beans and creamy mustard lemon sauce.

This low-carb skillet meal is easy to prepare in just a few minutes, and if you use thin-cut pork chops instead of thicker bone-in pork chops, it will take even less time to prepare as you won't have to finish them in the oven.

This keto meal goes great with green beans and other low-carb vegetables such as asparagus, Brussels sprouts or broccoli. I cook the green beans separately in a pot of salted boiling water before draining them and combining with the creamy mustard lemon sauce. Don't be tempted to cook the green beans in the creamy mustard sauce as the cheese would curdle if cooked for too long. Enjoy!

Ingredients (makes 2 servings)

  • 2 thick-cut pork chops (300 g/ 10.6 oz) - or 340 g/ 12 oz bone-in pork chops
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp virgin avocado oil or ghee (15 ml)
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock or bone broth (60 ml/ 2 fl oz)
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice (30 ml)
  • 150 g goat's cheese or cream cheese (5.3 oz)
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard or yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp dried Italian herbs
  • 300 g green beans, trimmed (10.6 oz)
  • Optional: herbs to serve


  1. Remove the pork chops from the fridge to allow them to come to room temperature. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Keto Creamy Mustard Pork Chops with Green Beans
  2. Preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F (fan assisted), or 220 °C/ 425 °F (conventional). Grease a hot oven-safe skillet with avocado oil or ghee.
  3. Add the pork chops and cook on medium-high for 2 to 3 minutes per side until golden brown. (Note: I used boneless pork chops but you can use bone-in pork chops, about 170 g/ 6 oz each.)
  4. Transfer into the oven and bake for 7 to 15 minutes depending on the thickness. If you have a meat thermometer, insert it into the thickest part. The temperature should read 60-63 °C/ 140-145 °F when they are done. Keto Creamy Mustard Pork Chops with Green Beans
  5. Meanwhile, bring a medium saucepan filled with water to a boil. Add a generous pinch of salt and then add the green beans. Bring to a boil and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until crisp tender. Drain and set aside. Keto Creamy Mustard Pork Chops with Green Beans

  7. Add 1/4 cup (60 ml) of stock or bone broth to deglaze the skillet. Add lemon juice, goat's cheese (or cream cheese), Dijon mustard (or yellow mustard) and Italian herbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook on medium for 3 to 5 minutes to reduce and thicken the sauce while stirring. Keto Creamy Mustard Pork Chops with Green Beans

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

I loved this recipe. I have gestational diabetes so was looking for pork chop recipe inspiration and this was delicious! Is there a way to freeze this once it’s cooked so it becomes a freezer meal as well?

Thank you for your lovely feedback! Yes, this recipe will freeze well for sure. I'd freeze the green beans & meat together to have it ready as a quick dinner option. Gentle defrosting overnight in the fridge and then reheating would be best.
(I'm sorry for the delayed response, life gets busy with newborn twins!)
