Sweet + savory = keto heaven!
Looking for a delicious keto-friendly meal that will take care of your sweet and savory cravings? We’re taking on a traditionally savory entree and sweetening it with some fruity flavors for a flavor experience like no other. Our keto peach pork chops were an absolute hit at my house and I know you’ll be hooked after one bite!
These peach pork chops have a punch of sweetness combined with savory spices to balance everything into this delicious keto-friendly meal. Outstanding on their own, I served these yummy pork chops with green beans and mashed cauliflower for a perfect low carb dinner.
Here are a couple of recipe tips to keep in mind when making keto peach glazed pork chops:
- Pork chops are fully cooked when the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees. To avoid the guessing game, I used a handy meat thermometer to check for doneness.
- ChocZero has opened the door for enjoying fruit flavors while keeping it keto. Their
peach syrupis bringing in all the sweet without all the added sugar. Note that their peach syrup is currently sold out, but this DaVinci brand sugar free peach syrup on Amazon is available and would be a great option for this dish.
- I add my feta cheese right when I get the pork chops out of the oven so it’s not completely melted but if you want to add your cheese before you place the cast-iron under the broil you can and you will get that melted cheese coated over the chops which are delish!

Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Add butter to cast-iron skillet. Once melted, add in minced garlic and stir for 2 minutes. Place pork chops in cast-iron and sear on each side for 4 minutes.
In a small bowl, add sauce ingredients and whisk.

Place pork chops back into cast-iron skillet and drizzle peach sauce over pork chops. Place sprigs of thyme and basil over pork chops, and place cast-iron skillet in the oven for 5 minutes or until pork chops have reached 145 degrees.

This recipe is simply drool-worthy!
When I wasn’t busy devouring these perfectly peach pork chop chunks (say that 5 times fast!), I had to stop and admire how this otherwise bland cut of meat could take on the most tantalizing flavors.
Normally I would think of keto-friendly peach syrup as a sweet treat topping, but I can’t wait to find more ways to apply it in other savory dishes. Any suggestions, friends?
My team member, Jenna, gave this recipe a test for me, and here’s what she had to say:
“These turned out so perfect! I really love that ChocZero syrup and that you made it into a glaze. I used asparagus instead of green beans and it worked out beautifully with the same directions. The pork chops were done perfectly and the veggies, too.
But OH that sauce! It’s so good! I love that the erythritol cooks down and you can’t even tell it isn’t brown sugar in there!” – Jenna
Keep the fruit flavors strong with keto banana pudding cheesecake for dessert!
Any alternatives for the peach syrup? It is out of stock until 2021. Thank you!
Hi there! Torani has a sugar free peach syrup, however we haven’t had it and it may not be as clean Keto as Choc Zero. Hoping that is helpful!
Thank you! That is what I was thinking to use as a substitute.
You’re so very welcome ❤
