Pork chops, sweet potatoes and apples. yum. Thanks zurie for pointing out the last line, not sure how it got in :) Fixed it.
- Pare sweet potatoes and slice.
- Cut apples without peeling in thick slices. Place the sliced potatoes in a greased baking dish and sprinkle with half the salt.
- Add the sliced apples, sugar and cinnamon. Arrange the pork chops on the apples, and season with remaining salt, pepper and sage.
- Add hot water and bake in a moderate oven (350° F.) for about 1 hour, or until chops and potatoes are seasoned to taste, and are well done.
We really enjoyed the flavors in this dish. I cooked as posted. I did use thin chops so added them after 15 mins of cooking time. The apples and potatoes come out so tender. I have to agree with some of the other reviewers that you can't taste the sage. I cut the recipe in half and used an 8X8 size pan. Thanks for posting. :)
I cut the recipe in half for 2 of us & that worked out just fine! As long as I can get unblemished yams I don't like peeling them so didn't for this recipe either! And, I quickly browned the chops before putting the casserole together & also used a very generous rounded measure of sage ~ It all came together for A VERY TASTY MAIN DISH! Thanks much for a very nice keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Stars]
The apple/sweet potato combo was perfect. I could not taste the sage, so next time I plan on doubling it. This would be good with thyme also. This was easy to put together. Thanks for sharing:) Made for the March Herb/Spice of the Month--SAGE tag.
