Prosciutto Wrapped Pork Chops With Sage Leaves
I don't know about the rest of you, but CrossFit has worked me this week so far! And I love it!! It's weeks like these when I really appreciate and can put to the test... my Paleo ways!!!
Results . results . results! Are you seeing them???
I felt tonight's dinner was a simple Paleo success. Scott said there is no way anyone will believe this was quick and easy... but I will tell you that is truly was! It also turned out very presentable, too, and I would comfortably serve this meal to guests! :-)
Hope you enjoy!
6-8 pork loin chops, trimmed of all visible fat
16-18 sage leaves (I was fortunate enough to have some growing in my garden!)
1 package Prosciutto, 4-6 oz. (preferably natural prosciutto free of nitrates and antibiotics!)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Trim pork chops and sprinkle with black pepper, garlic and onion powder. Place sage leave on top of pork chops and wrap prosciutto around pork. Spread a little olive oil over a baking dish. Place pork chops in dish, prosciutto seam side down. Bake for about 25-35 minutes. Pork is done when the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. It turned out so pretty! We served this with some cooked Japanese sweet potatoes, and a garden salad. Very Tasty!
* Paleo challengers... the results are in! Stay tuned for the big announcement!!!
