However, we are not fans of pork chops. The cut is just too tough for our liking. So next time, I'd probably make it with a tenderloin chop or something a little more tender. It was still juicy and flavorful, but just too tough.
The recipe is from WW, Cook It Quick and was super easy to prepare. The original recipe called for pears, but also said you can substitute pineapple or apricots in place of the pear, so I used that can of peaches we had laying around.
- 1 Tablespoon flour
- 1 Tablespoon curry powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 pork loin chops
- 1 15oz can yams in light syrup, drained
- 1 15oz can peach slices in peach juice, drained (reserve 1/2 cup of juice)
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves, crumbled
- 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil. In a large sealable plastic bag, mix the flour, curry powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Add the pork and shake to coat.
2. Transfer the pork to the skillet; saute until cooked through, about 4 minutes on each side.3. Meanwhile, cut the yams into bite-size chunks; add to the pork with the peaches, reserved peach juice, thyme, pepper and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, about 5 minutes; uncover and simmer until the pork is cooked through, about 2 minutes longer.
