Rustic Low Sodium Pork Chops

This is a wonderful and quick meal that is sure to please even the skeptical hubby that has to have salt on everything. I actually made this weeks ago because I wanted to use up some apples and sweet potatoes before they went bad. Waste not want not right? Here’s the low down on how I threw this all together.

I chopped up two small apples or you could use one large, two sweet potatoes pealed and chopped, and one half of a sweet onion chopped. Doesn’t have to be fancy, just chop into bite size pieces. I then put those on top of two lean pork chops in a baking pan and set them to one side. By now you should know that I sometimes do not measure and this recipe was no exception, so I will just give you the list of ingredients to adjust to your own needs and taste buds. This is one thing about sharing my recipes, I really need to start measuring my spices to let all of you know how much you will need. Here are the ingredients:

olive oil, or oil of choice balsamic vinegar, or vinegar of choice parsley rosemary garlic powder black pepper

I did use roughly 1/4 cup of the oil and I just poured what maybe looked like a Tblsp of vinegar into the oil. I then added the spices into the oil mixture and I tasted it as I went, Rosemary has a strong taste so I have to be careful with it because hubby doesn’t care for it too well. Again it’s all in your taste so adjust to your needs. Pour over the chops and veggies and bake in a 400º oven for 40 to 45 minutes depending how thick the chops and taters are. I paired this with some home canned green beans and home canned mushrooms sauteed in a little butter and garlic. Mmm, so tasty!

This is a super simple yet hardy meal that is pleasing on the eye as well as the tummy. Hope you enjoy!
