  • Servings: 4
  • Cooktime: 60 minutes
  • Main Ingredient: Pork


  • 4 lb. Center-cut pork loin chops
  • 1 lb. Sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 Large green Anjou or Bartlett pear (may be substituted with large Granny Smith or Golden Delicious apple)
  • 1 Small red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup Apple juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dried thyme
  • 1/2 cup VERMONT MAID Pancake Syrup
  • 1/2 tablespoon POLANER Chopped Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ACCENT Flavor Enhancer


Preheat oven to 400F. In large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, brown pork chops on both sides, about 10 minutes. Place chops in 3-qt baking dish. Cut sweet potatoes lengthwise in half. Cut each piece crosswise in half. Cut each quarter crosswise into slices about 1/3-inch thick. Cut pear (unpeeled) into 8 wedges and remove core. Arrange sweet potato slices, pear wedges and onion wedges over chops. In small bowl, mix remaining ingredients; pour over casserole. Bake, uncovered, 45 minutes, basting occasionally, or until sweet potatoes are tender. Spoon pan juices over each serving.
