"A very easy recipe and we love it! The meat just falls off the bone - so you do have to watch for bone fragments if you are using bone-in pork chops. The brown sugar and applesauce candy the sweet potatoes and the cranberries balance out the sweetness. I always have the individual serving containers of applesauce on hand, so I used 4 of those (3.9 oz each). That worked just fine."
