Pork And Potatoes (Skillet Recipe)

For me, this pork and potatoes skillet recipe was one of those really homey, satisfying meals that make you sit back in your chair when you’re done eating and sigh with contentment.

Maybe it’s the “meat and potatoes” German in me, but this one really hit the spot.

Clean Eating Pork & Potato Skillet

My mom is a HUGE pork fan as is Mini Chef. I can never go wrong when I serve pork for dinner. I know some people have major issues with pork, but in our family, it qualifies as clean and we enjoy it fully. That being said, I do spend the extra money at Whole Foods to get better quality pork. I’m not completely blind to the way pork (and much of our meat supply) is handled these days.

If you enjoy pork on occasion as well, give this one a try. It’s definitely a fully satisfying meal. Just serve with some veggies or a salad to balance things out and you’re good to go!

NOTE: If you are low-carb, do what I did and simply enjoy the pork with some low-carb veggies and leave the potatoes for whoever you eat dinner with. I promise, there will be no complaints!

    Looks delicious, so crispy and fatty.:) I miss pork! I grew up eating it in Ukraine but now for the reasons you mentioned above we do not buy it ever. I have no place to shop for quality pork and to find organic seems like I will have to travel to the moon. So I will be licking the screen LOL
