DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Begin by melting the butter, brown sugar and maple syrup together over low-medium heat in an oven-proof casserole pot. (Watch carefully - the sugars will burn quickly if overheated).
  • Season both sides of the pork chops to taste with salt and pepper, then brown both sides in the melted butter and sugar/syrup mixture. Don't be afraid to brown the chops well - it will create a delicious crust.
  • While the pork chops are browning, mix together the diced potato, sweet potato, red onion, apples, and carrots.
  • Remove chops from pan and add 1/2 of the diced mixture to cover the bottom of the pan. Place the chops in a single layer over the mixture.
  • Layer the remaining diced mixture on top of the pork chops.
  • Layer the pineapple chunks on top of the pot.
  • Finish by pouring the chicken broth over the whole pan.
  • Cover and bake for 30 minutes, or until chops read approximately 140 degrees on a meat thermometer. Uncover and bake for approximately 15 additional minutes until chops register 160-170 degrees on a meat thermometer.
  • Serve with a sprinkling of chopped pecans for garnish, if desired.
  • Enjoy!
