We just got our very first cast iron pan (a cast iron grill pan, no less!) so I decided to try it out with a pan roasting recipe. If you don’t have cast iron, any heavy pan will do — just make sure that it’s safe to go into your oven. This recipe is another potential one-pan recipe that utilizes your oven, so it’s great for the colder months when you’re feeling a little lazy and cold, but want some great food.

Enter the cheese crust!
There are several ways to prepare pork chops. This is a method of breading it… but in the paleo fashion! How do you do that? The answer is Almond meal (aka Almond flour).
