Pork Chops with Sweet Potatoes

It’s getting to be sweet potato season, I guess. Here is another recipe that calls for sweet potatoes in a savory, not sweet, dish.

Heat 2 Tbsp. butter in a deep skillet. Brown 6 pork chops on both sides (this time I used four boneless pork chops, but loin or rib chops are fine and the amounts are easily adjusted). Season with salt and pepper.

Place about a teaspoon of ketchup on each chop. Cover and cook over low heat for 10-15 minutes.

Peel and halve 6 medium sweet potatoes (I used 3 fairly large ones and I cut them into large chunks). Remove chops from skillet; add ¾ cup water. Place potatoes in skillet. Turn to coat with liquid. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Pour about ½ cup ketchup over potatoes.

Top potatoes with chops.

Cover and cook over low heat for about 45 minutes or until potatoes are soft and chops are tender.

To serve, spoon sauce over potatoes and chops. Yield 6 servings.
