Paleo Horseradish Pork Chops

 I found this recipe today for pork chops that looked easy, but I didn’t have all of the ingredients so I changed it a bit. I was so surprised at how AMAZING it turned out! From start to finish, it takes 30 minutes to prepare.
 
Ingredients:
5 bone-in pork chops
4 oz of horseradish sauce (check the ingredients to make sure it’s ok)
1T garlic power
1/2T cayenne pepper
salt to taste
1 bag of fresh baby spinach
fat of choice (I used coconut oil)
 
Directions:
Preheat oven to 425.
Mix horseradish sauce, garlic, cayenne together in a small bowl. Spread mixture on both sides of raw chops.
Use fat in a frying pan to seer chops (about 2-3 min on each side).
Put in baking dish and into oven until done (about 15 min).
While the chops are in the oven, put the spinach in the frying pan that you used to cook the chops, scraping the remanents from the chops and mixing with the spinach. Cook on medium until soft.
