Pork Chops and Sweet Potatoes

This is one of my all- time favorite recipes! I found it a few years back when I was on the Southbeach diet.....And it’s soooo easy!

~ Vinegar and Garlic Chops ~

Directions:
Salt and pepper center cut or lean loin pork chops. Spread a little chopped garlic over each chop. Sprinkle with paprika if desired for color.

Heat a frying pan until it is very hot, using a small amount of olive oil if needed to prevent sticking.

Sear chops over high heat until browned on each side.

Pour ½ cup apple cider vinegar and about ¾ cup of water over chops. Cover and reduce heat to low -- simmer for about 45 minutes or until tender.

****The vinegar will make the chops so tender, you can cut them with a fork.


~ Roasted Yams with Thyme ~
2 yams
2 Tablespoons olive oil
Sprinkling of thyme
Salt and ground pepper

Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Halve yams and place cut side up in a shallow baking dish in a single layer. Drizzle or brush with oil. And sprinkle with thyme. Season with salt and pepper.

Bake until golden brown and tender, 35 to 45 minutes.
