I made up this recipe last night - it was delicious. My husband and I are not great pork chop eaters but we had been given some plus some sweet potatoes so after looking for a recipe I settled on this one. The flavour of the orange with the pepper and cinnamon was very interesting, something I would not have imagined to use if I was making this up by myself, and the chops just fell off the bones. Yummy! I will add a little more orange juice next time. We will certainly have this again - next time we have pork chops!

Very good liked the orange flavor in the sweet potato. The Pork had only a very mild orange favor but was extreamly tender. Nice looking dish too with the orange slices on top.

We really enjoyed this!! I made as directed and cooked it in the wood cook stove. I browned the pork in a cast iron pan...and then added the rest of the ingreds, covered it and popped it back in the oven. I used a medium sized orange, but next time will use a larger one as I would have liked more goo (sauce). It was just wonderful on the yams. I will definately be making this again!! Thank you Derf for sharing this wonderful dish!

Great flavor! It didn't taste too orange-y and I used the whole orange. I used canned candied yams because that is what I had. Wow, it was so good and using canned yams was great because it added more flavor and sauce. I'll be making this one again! It was so quick and easy and I'm always looking for new ways to make pork and chicken.

This is a nice flavorful dish. The combination of pork and sweet potatoes always is a winner for us. I lightly seasoned the chops before browning. I did remove the wonderful sauce that had accumulated in the pan, added some arrowroot starch to thicken and poured the gravy over the chops and potatoes when serving.

We very much enjoyed this dish. Very simple to make. Our pork chops did not seem to have that much orange flavor but they were So Tender. The sweet potatoes took on more of the orange flavor. I had one large orange and it seemed to make enough sauce to cover the potatoes. I'll use this recipe again. Thanks for posting Derf.
