Ever wonder how to get the meat and potatoes done at the same time? Here's the secret.
Updated November 15, 2010

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 4 boneless pork sirloin chops, about 1/2 inch thick (1 pound)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped apple
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped celery

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Pierce sweet potatoes with fork to allow steam to escape. Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until tender. Cool 10 minutes.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, remove fat from pork chops. Place pork in ungreased rectangular pan, 13x9x2 inches. Mix salt, paprika, garlic powder and pepper; sprinkle half of the salt mixture over pork. Turn pork; sprinkle with remaining salt mixture. Pour 1/2 cup orange juice into pan; set aside.
  • 3
    Cut each sweet potato lengthwise in half. Scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4-inch shell. Mash pulp until no lumps remain. Beat in 2 tablespoons orange juice until light and fluffy. Stir in apple, onion and celery. Fill shells with pulp mixture.
  • 4
    Move pork to one end of pan; place sweet potatoes in other end of pan. Bake uncovered about 35 minutes or until sweet potatoes are hot and pork is slightly pink in center.

  • Want to prepare this meal in an hour? Bake the sweet potatoes in the microwave! Pierce sweet potatoes to allow steam to escape. Place at least 1 inch apart on microwavable paper towel. Microwave uncovered on High 7 to 9 minutes or until tender.
  • For extra fiber, leave the skin on apples. You lose one-third of the fiber in an apple when you remove its peel.
