An old family favorite that my grandmother used to make.

Like the previous review the apples fell aprt but still tasted good. The brown sugar sauce ended up on the bottom. I thought it would form a type of glaze over the meat but it didn't. I followed the directions except I used apple juice in place of cider. Having said that, the chops were okay. Just not worth all the effort and time it took to cook.
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- salt and pepper
- 6 pork loin chops (1-inch thick, trimmed of fat)
- 1⁄4 cup vegetable oil
- 4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/8 inch slices
- 1⁄2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 3 medium granny smith apples, peeled,cored,and cut into 1/2 inch rings
- 1⁄2 cup apple cider (may substitute beer, dry white wine, vermouth, or cola)
