Paleo Lemon Honey Pork Chops

Happy Monday! June is just flying by! Today, I’m sharing an awesome recipe and tutorial I’m really excited about!

You all know how I enjoy eating clean and living a chemical free lifestyle. Today I’m sharing two things that fit into both those categories. I’m going to show you how to make a delicious paleo meal, and then how to execute your clean up with an amazing DIY chemical-free sink cleaner! Let’s get started.

Today, we’re making Creamy Honey Lemon Pork Chops with salad and roasted sweet potatoes. Here’s what you’ll need:

Creamy Honey Lemon Pork Chops

  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 lemon- zested and juiced
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  1. Heat olive oil or coconut oil in a skillet over medium high heat until pan is warmed
  2. Season your pork chops with salt, pepper, and garlic powder evenly on both sides
  3. Brown the pork chops about 2-3 minutes on each side (they will not be cooked through)
  4. Remove the pork chops to a plate
  5. Add your coconut milk, honey, garlic, lemon zest and juice to the pan and bring to a boil, stirring every few minutes
  6. Add the pork chops back to the pan, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 10 minutes or until pork is cooked through
  7. Serve with roasted sweet potatoes and salad

 

Roasted Sweet Potatoes:

You’ll need:

  • 2 Sweet Potatoes
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt, Pepper, and Garlic Salt
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Skin and chop sweet potatoes into small squares
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and garlic salt
  4. Roast for 30 minutes or until soft

The only downside is, it creates a pretty big mess that requires a lot of cleanup! The creamy sauce can make the pan a big, sticky mess! And my stovetop often doesn’t look to pretty after cooking this dish either, but cleanup has been made easy ever since we started using Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloths. This is a new product from Scotch-Brite that is now a must have in my kitchen! It comes in a 2 pack in 4 colors options, gray, mint, floral, and navy, and you can find them at Target for only $4.99! Check them out here.

These dish cloths are two-sided, giving you the scrubbing power of a sponge on one side, and the drying effects of a towel on the other! They are multi-functional and with the scrubbing dots you can get rid of stubborn stuck on messes in a breeze! The best part about the Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth is that it is non scratch and won’t harm your dishware. The scrubbing power makes cleaning easy! You can even save on Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloths at Target with the Cartwheel App. Find the discount here ! (offer valid 6/19-6/25)

After all my dishes are done I like to scrub down my sink to make sure it shines! So many sink cleaners on the market contain harmful chemicals that I don’t like so I decided to attempt to make my own and I couldn’t be happier with the results. This sink cleaner takes only a few minutes to make, will last you a long time, and is much less expensive than what you find on the shelves. Oh, and completely chemical-free! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 Tbsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Cup Unscented Castile Soap
  • 20 drops citrus essential oil  of choice (optional)
  • Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth
  1. Combine all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk until combined
  2. Add mixture to a bottle and shake
  3. Pour the mixture into your sink and scrub with a scotch brite scrubbing cloth
  4. Let sit for 5-10 minutes
  5. Rinse with HOT water
  6. Enjoy your sparkly sink!

The castile soap and the baking soda will naturally separate. Be sure to shake vigorously before each use. The essential oil is an optional ingredient but lemon and other citrus flavors provide a pleasant scent and are a natural disinfectant! I used grapefruit in mine and it smells incredible!

    Those pork chops look fantastic. I love coconut milk in so many dishes, and this would be delicious. #client
