My body responds better when I eat a low carb diet full of protein and vegetables. I have tried all sorts of diets over the years, and have always felt my best when limiting carbohydrates.

I'm always on the hunt for new low carb ideas, and when I stumbled upon this Greek Style Pork Chop, I knew I had to try it!

I love this recipe because it is easy to make, quick, and loaded with fresh ingredients which means lots of flavor! Also, pork is probably my favorite protein. I've never liked picking favorites, so I'll say "probably" to avoid committing. Don't ask me to pick a favorite movie, song, book, etc... There are just too many good choices to nail it down to one!

Greek Style Pork Chops


  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly minced garlic, divided
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops about 1/2
  • 6 ounces plain fat free Greek style yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon shredded cucumber
  • Splash of lemon juice to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups diced plum tomatoes
  • 1 cup diced seeded cucumber
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion


  1. Combine 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1 teaspoon olive oil, and 1 teaspoon freshly minced garlic in a zip-top plastic bag or other container designed to marinate the pork chops. Add pork to bag, and seal. Marinate for at least 20 minutes at room temperature, turning after 10 minutes.
  2. Combine remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar, 1 teaspoon olive oil, 6 ounces yogurt, 1 tablespoon dill, 1 tablespoon shredded cucumber, 1/2 teaspoon freshly minced garlic, a little bit of lemon juice and 1/8 teaspoon salt, stirring well with a whisk to make the Tzatziki Sauce. Give it a taste and adjust the flavors as needed. Cover and chill.
  3. Combine 1 1/2 cups diced tomatoes, 1 cup diced cucumber, and 1/2 cup diced red onion. Sprinkle tomato mixture with 1/8 teaspoon salt; toss to combine.
  4. Heat a Grill Pan over mid-high heat (375 degrees F). Coat pan with cooking spray. Remove pork from bag, and discard marinade. Sprinkle both sides of pork evenly with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add pork to pan, and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until instant read thermometer registers 140 degrees F. Remove pork from pan, and let stand for 5-10 minutes. Enjoy with the cucumber and tomato salad and a generous helping of the Tzatziki sauce!

    1. Nicole, I don't have nutrition info on my recipes. If you google nutrition calculator you can enter the ingredients, in many cases even specific brands, and get a somewhat accurate count. There are minimal carbs in the main ingredients (the pork & vegetables). If using the Tzatziki sauce, the carbs will vary depending on the brand of yogurt you use.
