A few nights ago, we had this delicious dinner. I wish it were more of photogenic dish-- but believe me, it is so tasty. Tender, savory pork chops dusted with cinnamon, over brown sugar sweet potato's topped with juicy apples. Amazing.
It is also an incredibly quick and easy dish. It only takes four steps.
First, peel and slice 3 sweet potatoes.
Layer them on the bottom of the crock pot, and dust with a little salt and pepper and one teaspoon of brown sugar.
Next, thinly slice half an onion and layer over the potatoes.
Then, dust three pork chops with some cinnamon, salt, paprika and pepper, and cook them in a frying pan till they are slightly browned but not at all cooked through.
Layer the pork chops over the onions, and core and slice two apples. These make up the final layer.
Top with another teaspoon of brown sugar, two tablespoons of orange juice, and a dash or two of cinnamon, and put the lid on.
Cook it on low for about 6 hours, and then dish it up and revel in the savory sweet comfort. THE BEST fall/winter dinner I think. We'll certainly be having it again.
Now I'm thoroughly exhausted from posting this, and am going to take yet another nap. Lupe is curled up against me and snoring peacefully. Whoever sends over the chicken noodle soup first gets an award.
