Updated October 29, 2008

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup orange marmalade
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 2 medium dark-orange sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 3/4 cup Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or water
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops, 1/2 inch thick (1 lb)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, mix marmalade, butter, cinnamon and ginger. Stir in cranberries and sweet potatoes; set aside.
  • 2
    In shallow dish, mix Bisquick mix and red pepper. In another shallow dish, place soy sauce. Dip pork into soy sauce, then coat with Bisquick mixture. Spray 10-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Cook pork in skillet 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, until coating is brown.
  • 3
    Place pork in ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish. Arrange sweet potato mixture around pork. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender and pork is no longer pink in center.

  • Looking for a shortcut? Use a 17- or 18-ounce can of vacuum-packed sweet potatoes, cut crosswise in half, for the fresh sweet potatoes.
  • Use dried cherries or raisins instead of the cranberries.
  • Follow cook times for pork carefully. Today's pork is lean and requires shorter cooking times. Overcooking pork will make it tough.
