For the ingredients

Pork Chops: I always get my pork chops from our local farmer. But you can also get them at your grocery store.

Butter: I used (Kerrygold) butter to sear the pork chops in and fry the onion and garlic. I love the taste of butter, but you can also use other cooking fats for this recipe such as ghee, coconut oil, duck fat, or beef tallow.

Seasoning: I kept it very basic when it comes to the seasoning of the recipe because a lot of flavors came from the juice left from the searing of the meat. I just used salt, pepper, and parsley for seasoning this dish.

Heavy cream: When choosing a heavy cream make sure it’s unsweetened, organic, and preferably from grass-fed, grass-finished cows. This way you avoid the added sugars, antibiotics, and GMO crops that are fed to these animals which in turn can harm your health.

Parmesan cheese: I used parmesan cheese that was grated almost powdery. You can also use a parmesan block and grate it yourself. When choosing parmesan cheese, try to find one that only has parmesan and cultures in the ingredient list, preferably no preservatives.
