If you wanted mashed potatoes without the potatoes (carbs), then this might be it. Mashed cauliflower is paleo. And manly.
3 cups of cauliflower. Break up a head into smaller bits.
1 clove of garlic. Crush and finely chop it into a teaspoon or tablespoon.
2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Don't have it? No biggy.
1/2 cup of coconut milk. I prefer heavy whipping cream.
1 stick of butter
Chives. Chop them up.
Cook the cauliflower. Boiling water. Until soft.
Drain. Let it steam away. You don't want wet cauliflower. Dry it out a bit.
Mash the cauliflower. Blender is great.
Add milk. Not too much.
Add butter. The whole thing.
Add coconut oil.
Throw some salt and pepper and chives and nutmeg in there.
Two stuffed chops. One for you. The other... that's up to you.
1/2 pound of Chorizo or pork sausage
1 sweet potato. Cut it into little cubes.
2 green onions. Chopped up.
2 pork chops. Cut at least 1-inch thick by your butcher.
Preheat oven to 350.
Melt butter in a pan. Add the pork sausage. Cook thoroughly. Remove the pork from the pan. Leave the drippings. Throw into the same pan the sweet potato. Cook until soft. Bring back the pork into the pan. Throw in the onions. That's the stuffing for the chops.
Cut into the chop. The fatty side. Don't cut all of the way through. Just cut an opening into which you'll stuff the stuffing. Make it more like a pocket, and less like a sandwich. Mush around some salt and pepper inside the pouch.
Stuff the chop with the Chorizo & potato stuffing. As much as you can fit in there. The pouch opening can be secured with a toothpick.
Butter a pan on the stove. High heat. Sear the stuffed chops for 2 minutes on each side. Seal the juices in. Make each side a little brown. Then pop the chop in the oven. cook for 10-15 minutes. Use a thermometer probe to check the inside temperature. I like 165. Well done.
Well done, man.
