Whole30 Pork Chops with Plum and Thyme Sauce


Whole30 dishes can be simple and adventurous all at the same time! Pork chops always pair perfectly with a sweet addition, so instead of going the traditional route with apples, I chose to use plums. This sweet and savory dish is light yet satisfying and perfect for your holiday table.


  • 8 Pork Chops

  • 2 Tbsp Ghee

  • 6 plums

  • Handful of fresh thyme sprigs

  • 1/2 Cup Balsamic Vinegar

  • 1/4 Cup Water

  • Salt and Pepper to Taste


Chop plums and add to a sauce pan with thyme, balsamic vinegar, water, salt and pepper. Place over medium heat and let simmer until sauce thickens. Add to blender and blend on high until smooth. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Add ghee to a hot cast iron and sear for 3 minutes on each side. Place into a 400 degree oven for 8 minutes to finish cooking through. Smother pork chops in plum sauce and top with fresh time for garnish.
