Since I’d rather be working on polishing up my future book today-, I’m sharing one of my secret recipes. Everything you need will be in this one fabulous dish that tastes delicious enough for company and is easy enough for making on a weeknight. In fact, I used to assemble everything in the morning all the way up to the baking part--refrigerate it with the lid on and then bake it when I got home from work. Easy and impressive!
Sweet Potato & Apple Pork Chop Casserole
2 bone in pork chops. The nice thick kind. I season mine with this hickory-smoked seasoning, but salt will do fine. (Not much, salt raises your blood pressure)
2 apples (sliced-peeling is not necessary)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
¼ tsp. cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons Olive oil
2 Sweet potatoes-(peeled and cut into 1 inch thick slices)
½ red onion sliced thin. (Optional)
Heat olive oil and brown both sides of pork chops for a few minutes.
Remove from heat and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Put apples and sweet potatoes into cast iron pan with strong lid- like a Le Creuset style pan. (Cast iron)
Sprinkle with the cinnamon, brown sugar and dot with the butter.
If there is room in your pan, add some thinly sliced onions.
Put chops on top and cover with lid.
Bake for 1½hr. Serves 2. Enjoy!
Let me know what you think. Yummy, huh?
