Pork with Baked Apples
Serves: 4 | Serving Size: 1 plate
- 4 3-ounce pork chops, seasoned with salt and ? pepper
- 2 apples, cored and thinly sliced
- 2 sweet potatoes
- 2 cups broccoli
- 4 teaspoons mustard
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Heat a nonstick grill skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly spray it with cooking oil spray and grill the pork on one side until it gets attractive grill marks.
Flip the pork chops over.
Spread a little mustard on top of the pork chops. Place the apple slices next to them and put the pan of pork and apples in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the pork reaches a temperature of 145.
Place the sweet potatoes in the microwave and microwave until almost fork tender. Place finished sweet potatoes in the oven.
Meanwhile, in the last 5 minutes of baking time, start to cook the broccoli in the microwave so that it steams for about 3 minutes, or until crisp tender.
Serve your dinner hot with all items arranged attractively on the plate.
