Written by Andersons. Posted in Recipes


1/2 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon salt, divided

3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided

6 each thick-cut boneless pork loin chops (about 1 inch thick), trimmed of fat

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

4 each sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick

1/2 cup Packed brown sugar

3 each apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2-inch rings

1/2 cup dry white wine


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13-inch glass baking dish.

2. In a shallow dish, combine flour, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper. Dredge pork

chops in seasoned flour, coating evenly and shaking off excess. Discard excess flour mixture.

3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Cook pork chops, turning once, for

3 to 4 minutes per side or until browned on both sides. Transfer to prepared baking dish.

4. Layer half the sweet potatoes over pork chops. Sprinkle with one-third of the brown sugar. Layer half

the apples over sweet potatoes. Sprinkle with another third of the brown sugar.

Layer with the remaining sweet potatoes, apples, and brown sugar. Pour wine over mixture and sprinkle

with the remaining salt and pepper.

5. Cover and bake in preheated for 1 1/4 hours or until just a hint of pink remains inside pork. Uncover

and bake for 15 minutes more or until apples are browned.
