I don't recall where I found this recipe, but my husband and I have really enjoyed it. It's a change from most pork chop recipes. The flavors blend so well together and the sweet potatoes are wonderful.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350.
  2. Mix marmalade, butter, cinnamon and ginger in medium bowl.
  3. Stir in cranberries (cherries/raisins) and sweet potatoes, set aside. I also add about 1 to 2 T. water to this mixture.
  4. Mix Bisquick and red pepper.
  5. Dip pork into soy sauce, then coat with Bisquick mixture.
  6. Spray 10 inch skillet with cooking spray.
  7. Heat over over medium-high heat.
  8. Cook pork in skillet 6-8 minutes, turning once, until coating is brown.
  9. Place pork in ungreased rectangular baking dish, 13x9x2 inches.
  10. Arrange sweet potato mixture around pork – putting some of the mixture on top of each pork chop.
  11. Bake uncovered 40 to 45 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender and pork is cooked through.

*I* really liked this recipe. My family isn't used to sweet sauces on meat, but the blend of cinnamon, ginger, orange marmelade, and sweet potatoes was VERY good on my tongue. I did leave out the dried fruit--my family doesn't like that stuff at all, and I used regular all-purpose flour instead of Biquick. It was also relatively easy to make--most of the needed for this recipe is the baking time.

This dish was awesome, and easy to prepare. I used cranraisons, and sliced the sweet potatos like potato chips and used plenty. I also used extra marmalade and cooked it a little longer then the recipe called for. It was so good, that I took the leftovers over to my 73 year old father. He loved it too. Thanks

This was yummy! A very different combination for pork chops, but tasty. I liked the sweet potatos with it. It was sweeter than I thought it would be, from the marmalade? (never used marmalade before) A nice change. :-)
