  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • 4 slices nitrate free bacon chopped

  • On a clean work surface cut a pocket into each of the pork chops. Season the chops inside and out with salt, pepper and thyme. Stuff the chopped kale and chopped bacon into each pork chop pocket.
  • In a large skillet, heat the ghee over medium-high heat. Brown the pork chops, cook about 4-6 minutes per side. Place the chops in a large crock cooker. Pour over the chicken broth and then cover with the lid. Cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours, or until the pork chops reach 160 degrees.
  • Remove the chops from the crock cooker and let rest for about 3 minutes. Pour the pan juices over the chops and serve.
