I like simple one-dish meals.
And this recipe adapted from The Family Dinner Cookbook was perfect.
And best of all, my whole family loved it. Even those who don't like sweet potatoes.
One-Dish Pork Dinner
Adapted from The Family Dinner Cookbook
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 T butter
1 tsp cinnamon
3 large pork chops (or boneless pork loin)
2 medium sweet potatoes, chopped (may also use acorn squash)
3 apples, peeled and chopped
Mix brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon until crumbly; set aside. Place pork in 9x13 dish. Arrange sweet potatoes and apples around pork. Sprinkle with brown sugar mixture. I added a small amount of water - maybe a half cup - so it would not dry out. Cover and bake at 350 degrees until pork is done. Baking time will depend upon thickness of your pork. I had thick slices with bone which took nearly 2 hours. I uncovered the pan for the last 30 minutes. If you have thin slices of boneless pork it may only take 45 minutes.
