Sweet Homecoming Pork Chops

These sweet juicy pork chops will remind you of visiting the grand parents on the farm. Easy to put together and tastes like you have been working all day long!

Home style pork chops, sweet potatoes with a hint of orange and maple, served with a side of peas and onions.

2 boneless pork loin chops, thick
2 Tbs low sodium soy sauce
¼ cup flour
2 cans of sweet potatoes (orange-pineapple flavored)
2/3 cup orange marmalade
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon apple pie spice
2 tablespoons dried cranberries
½ cup maple syrup

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
    Cut slits into the band of fat on the side of the chops.

  • Drain the cans of sweet potatoes.
  • Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish.
  • Place soy sauce in a bowl and the flour in a 2nd bowl. Heat oil in the skillet. Dip pork into soy sauce, then coat with flour. Brown on each side (about 3 minutes per side).

  • Dump the sweet potatoes into the baking dish and press the pork chops into that.
Spoon the orange marmalade over each chop and sprinkle with the dried cranberries.

  • Pour the syrup around the chops but not on them. Dust with the cinnamon and apple pie spice. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender and pork is no longer pink in center.
Serve this with a simple green side dish, like peas with onions.
