"Made this for the second time. First time I did it exactly as it said. It was good but the sweet potatoes were way overcooked. Today I used regular pork chops and 2 large sweet potatoes, which I did not pre-cook. I cut them up a bit smaller and left them raw on top of the chops. Turned out delicious. Nice and easy one dish dinner, although I served some green beans along side. I will be making this again for sure."

"This was very easy to make. I used Smithfield smoked pork chops found in the prepared meats section. I only used 2 large sweet potatoes and that was plenty. I served with a side of quinoa. Family loved it."

"After reading all the reviews - and, granted, I haven't tried the recipe - but what is the point of using an 'ovenproof' skillet if you're just going to transfer everything to a 13 x 9 pan? Why not just add the sweet potatoes to the ovenproof skillet and have only one pan to wash? And, by the way, you can't just add liquid smoke to regular pork chops to make them smoked. Smoked pork chops are already fully cooked and only need to be heated; they're very similar to ham. You would be better off to substitute ham if you can't find smoked pork chops."

"I looked into information about the sodium in smoked pork chops. This is what I found. A four oz boneless smoked pork chop has approximately 1216 mg of sodium or 304 mg. per oz. This recipe calls for 7 oz boneless pork chops which is a large serving. That is why the sodium is so high. Maybe use a smaller chop if available but that would alter the baking time, too. I would probably make the sauce ingredients on stove top and use it as a spoon over sauce using small chops to avoid over baking them."

"If you can't find smoked Pork Chops just add some liquid smoke maybe 1 tsp. to the ingredients and cook as it says.

the sodium is coming from the smoked pork chops that is why you would use regular chops and the liquid smoke, you can buy it in bottles just like worcesterhire sauce."

"I was going to try this, my husbands parents are European and love Smoked Pork Chops, but then I got down to the Nutritional Facts, 2,462 mg sodium, come on, I think that is more than a days intake suggestion."

"Sounds great, but how can you cut a sweet potato into thirds lengthwise? Wouldn't quartering the potatoes be considerably more practical (and less likely to cause you to jam a knife into your hand)?"
