Pork Chop Casserole Recipe with Apples and Sweet Potatoes
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
- 3/4 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground, divided
- 6 pork loin chops, thick-cut boneless, about 1 inch/2.5 cm thick, trimmed of fat
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 4 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 3 apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2-inch rings
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
- 1. In a shallow dish, combine the flour, 1/2 teaspoon (2 mL) salt and 1/2 teaspoon (2 mL) pepper. Dredge the pork chops in seasoned flour, coating evenly and shaking off excess. Discard the excess flour mixture.
- 2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat until hot. Cook pork chops, turning once, for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until browned on both sides. Transfer to a greased 13- by 9-inch (33 by 23 cm) glass baking dish.
- 3. Layer half the sweet potatoes over the pork chops. Sprinkle with one-third of the brown sugar. Layer half the apples over the sweet potatoes. Sprinkle with another third of the brown sugar. Layer with the remaining sweet potatoes, apples and brown sugar. Pour wine over the mixture and sprinkle with the remaining salt and pepper.
- 4. Cover and bake in preheated oven for 1 1/4 hours or until just a hint of pink remains inside pork. Uncover and bake for 15 minutes or until apples are browned.
- Tiffany suggests serving this yummy pork chop casserole recipe with hot spiked apple cider.
- Save a few minutes by tossing the potatoes and apples with the brown sugar and spreading the mixture on top of the pork. You’ll lose the pretty layered effect but gain some time.
