Blackberry Ginger Pork Chops

Plain ole’ pork chops don’t have anything on this incredibly flavorful recipe! While the pork chops of our childhood were crispy and coated in layers of breadcrumbs, these Blackberry Ginger Pork Chops are totally different (in the best way possible!).

Don’t get us wrong: We loved the carb-heavy pork chops of our youth. These days, we’re just a lot more health-conscious. If you are looking for a tasty new dinner option that also happens to be waistline-friendly, then this is the recipe for you!

This Dish is Bursting with Delicious Antioxidants and Flavor!

The combination of flavors from the blackberries and ginger pair perfectly with the tender pork chops.

One of the main ingredients in this recipe is blackberries. This antioxidant-rich fruit is just as beneficial to your health as it is pleasing to your taste buds. Blackberries are loaded with Vitamin C, potassium, and fiber, all of which are essential to your health. They’re also cholesterol-free, sodium-free, and fat-free! So they contribute a whole bunch of nutrients in addition to adding a sweet and fruity flavor to the sauce.

The blackberries aren’t the only flavorful ingredient in this recipe. Fresh ginger adds a kick of earthy-spice to the sauce, and it offers benefits to your immune system. It’s rich in antioxidants and provides antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects to your body.

Lastly, compared to other spices, cinnamon is a cut above the rest. It also offers antioxidant benefits, as well as antimicrobial properties and anti-inflammatory properties. This spice adds a strong, warm flavor to the blackberry ginger sauce. 

High-Protein with Fewer than 300 Calories Per Serving

This blackberry ginger porkchop recipe is a delicious and high-protein dinner option.

Center cut pork chops rival chicken breasts as far as a healthy, complete protein is concerned. Each serving of this Blackberry Ginger Pork Chop recipe contains a whopping 30 grams of protein, 9 grams of heart-healthy unsaturated fat, and comes in at fewer than 300 calories per serving! 

Speaking of heart health, garlic adds one more layer of nutritional benefits to this dish. Garlic is well-known for its ability to lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and boost the flavor of any recipe!
