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.
Our family also enjoyed this simple yet delicious recipe.
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.
