A very well balanced dish on both flavor and nutrients. Sweet potatoes not only added a hint of sweetness, but also provided lots of essential nutrients.

The dish was quite easy to make, instead of cooking in the oven, I seared the pork chops in a hot nonstick skillet, and it came out tender, juicy and delicious.

Serve it with a good loaf of bread to satisfy your carb craving.
