Heartburn-Friendly Pork Recipes


Updated August 17, 2009

Pork is often called "the other white meat" and is often as lean as chicken. Pork tenderloin is especially lean. The recipes here are heartburn-friendly, because fat is sometimes a heartburn trigger. Leaner meats and low-fat ingredients cut down on fat content.


Baked Pork Chops with Oregano
A flavorful meal without being spicy. If frying a pork chop triggers your heartburn, then this baked pork chop recipe will be a good one for you to try. This recipe also doesn't use the spices that are included in many other pork chop coatings, used when baking the chops. This meal can be customized to your tastes by adding extra ingredients, such as vegetables.

Grilled Pork Chops
I love grilled pork chops, but they used to turn out dry. With the following recipe, the coating helps keep the pork chops moist, and unlike some coatings for pork chops that contain spices and other ingredients that may cause heartburn for some people, this recipe uses bread crumbs and low-fat cheese. If fatty foods trigger your heartburn, less fat means less heartburn.

Herbed Pork Tenderloin
If you are avoiding fatty meats because it's a heartburn trigger for you, try pork tenderloin, which is very lean and a great choice for not only a healthy low-fat meal but also a heartburn-friendly meal. You can get a great tasting dish using a few herbs, without the burn caused by too many spices.

No Tomato Sauce Ham Pizza
If you enjoy pizza but don't like the heartburn that sometimes follows, try this heartburn-friendly version. If fatty foods or tomato-based products trigger your heartburn, the lean ham, low-fat cheese and no tomato sauce make this pizza recipe safe for most heartburn sufferers.

Pasta and Ham
Ham can be a great heartburn-friendly meat if it's lean (95% fat-free or greater). To make it healthier, it should also be low-sodium.

Pork Chops with Applesauce
Lean pork chops are a great heartburn-friendly choice. This recipe also uses rice, which is filling but also a low-heartburn risk.

Pork Chops with Pasta
This recipe gives ordinary pork chops extra zing. Since the ingredients are low-fat, such as the low-fat sour cream and pasta prepared without added fat, it won't give you heartburn.

Pork Tenderloin with Herb Sauce
Some individuals can't eat fatty foods, because it triggers their heartburn. Eating low-fat meals can help stave off the burn. This recipe combines low-fat pork tenderloin with a creamy sauce that is made from low-fat ingredients -- all combined to make a heartburn-friendly meal.

Pork Tenderloin with Noodles and Cheese Mushroom Sauce
Pork tenderloin is a very lean cut of meat. Since fatty foods can be a heartburn trigger for some individuals, using pork tenderloin along with low-fat cheese and pasta creates a low-fat, heartburn-friendly meal.
