Find out how to turn this southern classic dish into a nutritious meal with the same great taste. And it’s KETO friendly!
I am still going strong on my New Year’s goals of cooking up new and lighter dishes. Gone are the days of frying my favorite southern dishes like pork chops and instead using Mazola® Corn Oil for baking my recipes. A recent study has found that adding Mazola® Corn Oil to one’s diet resulted in lower cholesterol levels than Coconut Oil. A previous study found that corn oil can also help lower cholesterol more than extra virgin olive oil. To learn more about the study, see Mazola.com.
It also has a neutral taste that won’t negatively impact the taste of ingredients, so it lets the natural flavor of your food stand out.
In the south, pork chops are always fried! But instead of frying my pork chops, I brush them with Mazola® Corn Oil (made of 100% pure oil with no additives, so the great flavor of your food comes through), and coat them with almond flour instead of all purpose flour. By making a few simple swaps I turned this fried, high calorie meal into a “better for you” meal without sacrificing the taste. Making switches like serving the pork chops with cauliflower mashed potatoes instead of regular potatoes, and broccoli instead of fried okra are great ways to lighten up the meal.
Mazola Corn Oil is an all-purpose cooking oil that is a smart heart-healthy choice for your family. Variety of uses include baking, grilling, sautéing, stir frying, or mixing up a marinade or dressing. Mazola has a smoke point higher than most cooking oils at 450°F and performs well in a variety of cooking applications, including stir-frying, sautéing, grilling and even baking. Many home cooks may not realize that all cooking oils have a smoke point that, once exceeded, not only negatively affect the food’s flavor and nutritional value.
