Great way to use canned yams/sweet potatoes throughout the year. My husband raves about this recipe every time I prepare it!

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Line a 9x13-inch baking dish with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
  3. Season pork chops with salt and black pepper.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook pork chops until browned on both sides, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain pork chops on a paper towel-lined plate.
  5. Heat brown sugar, butter, apricot preserves, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, vanilla extract, and pecans in a saucepan over medium-low heat until sugar has dissolved and sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. If sauce because too thick, stir in reserved yam liquid.
  6. Stir in yams until well coated.
  7. Transfer pork chops to the prepared baking dish.
  8. Spoon yam mixture on top of the pork chops.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven until pork chops no longer pink in the center, 30 to 45 minutes. Allow pork chops to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
  10. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I don't know why, but my recipe was changed from PORK STEAKS to pork chops. I prefer pork steaks -- better value for the buck than pork chops.

I went about this differently. I used fresh sweet potatoes, which I microwaved until almost done and mashed them with the butter, spices and orange marmalade, omitting the sugar and vanilla extract. I then placed the sweet potatoes in a baking dish and topped with pecans and baked it along with the chops. A side of fresh steamed broccoli and I had a perfect fall dinner. Thanks!
