Pork Harvest Medley

I came across this recipe in the newspaper last fall. The flavor is incredible!
Pork Harvest Medley

The recipe can easily be doubled. Make sure you cover it when you cook; you want the pork and vegetable juices to make a sauce, not to evaporate.

2 (1-inch thick) bone-in pork chops
1 sweet potato
1 small onion
1 Granny Smith apple
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms

Lightly salt and pepper the pork chops. In a lightly oiled, large heavy skillet over medium-high heat, add the pork chops, cover with a tight-fitting lid and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Turn pork chops, cover and cook for 3 to 5 minutes to brown the other side.

Meanwhile, peel and chop sweet potato. Place on plate and microwave on high for 3 1/2 minutes to partially precook. Peel and chop onion and apple.

When chops are golden on both sides, remove from skillet and set aside. Add sweet potato, onion and mushrooms to skillet and stir to combine. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons water to deglaze pan and make a sauce. Place pork chops on top of vegetable mixture. Reduce heat to medium and cook, covered, for 15 minutes.

Hi - I saw your site on the MSPI message board. It's great! I'm going to add it to my blog role (even though my blog has nothing to do with cooking or MSPI). It's www.TeacherParentResources.com
Do you have any interest in making a post with a collection of high calorie finger foods for MSPI's? I'm inventing them as we speak, but I'd love to have more ideas. I'd be happy to send you the things I've tried so far... email me at jessicalerner@hotmail.com
