Sweet Potato & Apple Pork Chop dinner

10 Oct

Mmmm...

Whether you’re having a blast-tastic type of day that makes you jump out of your shoes from happiness, or if you’re at the end of a day when you need to drink a large bottle of wine immediately or risk killing the next person you see, a solid dinner is in order. And in both cases, I think that the wine is too.

This dinner is comfy like your pink bunny slippers and will make you feel cozy as hell no matter what the day has put on your plate so far.

The Supplies

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic (about 2 large cloves)
  • 4 pork chops
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cooking apples, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon honey mustard
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Marjoram
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • Large piece of tinfoil (maybe two)

 

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Rub the pork chops with garlic, S&P, nutmeg, thyme and marjoram
  3. Toss the potatoes, apples, onions and garlic with mustard, spices, and salt & pepper. Cut up 3 tbs of butter into pieces and scatter around the
  4. Wrap the mixture in tinfoil so that it is completely covered. Place it on a baking sheet, and leave it in the oven for at least 18 minutes (the potatoes should be tender).
  5. While the potato mix is roasting, heat the remaining tablespoon of butter in a large pan on medium heat and brown up the porch chops. You want to make sure there is no pink on the inside, about 7 minutes on each side depending on how thick your cut is.
