Recipe of the Week: Cajun Pork Chop

Written by:
Recipe of the Week: Cajun Pork Chop

When you want simple, lean protein that can be prepared in many different ways, pork is a great alternative to chicken.

This simple recipe is from my bestselling cookbook The Shredded Chef and it’s really tasty and requires almost no prep. Top it with some mustard for a bit of extra low-calorie zing.

Carbohydrates Per Serving

Fat Per Serving

5 grams


4 boneless pork chops, 1/2 inch thick, trimmed of fat (5 ounces each)

2 teaspoons salt-free extra-spicy seasoning blend

1/2 medium onion, sliced

1 jalapeño peppers, seeded and finely chopped

1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained


Lay pork chops out and rub both sides with the spicy seasoning blend. Coat a 12-inch nonstick skillet in cooking spray and place over medium-high heat.

Add the onion and jalapeño and sauté for 2 minutes, until slightly tender, push the mixture to one side of the skillet. On the other side, add the pork chops. Cook for 3 minutes, turning once to brown on both sides.

Add the tomatoes and bring to a boil, reduce heat and cover. Cook for 6 – 8 minutes, or until pork chops are no longer pink in center.

I'm Mike and I'm the creator of Muscle for Life and Legion Athletics, and I believe that EVERYONE can achieve the body of their dreams.

If you like what I have to say, sign up for my free newsletter and every week I'll send you awesome, science-based health and fitness tips, delicious "diet-friendly" recipes, motivational musings, and more.


What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.

You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.
