Unfortunately, meat, especially pork chops don't do well when nuked. Tends to dry out the meat cause it cooks from inside out. Maybe you could use leaner ground pork and mix it with the seasoning instead of a rub?

These recipes with very low carbs to almost none are my favorites. It is so nice to be able to eat something such as these chops with out worring about the carbs especially if you want more than one.. And I'd really want more than one of these.
