  • 1 large orange sweet potato, unpeeled (1 large = about 1 lb)
  • 1/4 cup maple-flavored syrup
  • 3 tablespoons Gulden's® Spicy Brown Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon Fleischmann's® Original Spread-tub

  1. Cut potato in half lengthwise and then crosswise. Place on microwave-safe plate. Cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on HIGH 5 minutes or until fork can pierce flesh.
  2. Meanwhile, combine syrup, mustard, oregano and salt in small bowl. Spread 1/3 mustard mixture on one side of pork chops. Melt Fleischmann's in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork chops, mustard-side down. Spread another 1/3 mustard mixture over other side of chops. Cook 5 minutes, turning once.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low. Place potato pieces around chops. Spoon remaining mustard mixture over potatoes; cover. Cook 8 to 10 minutes or until pork is slightly pink in centers (160°F). Spoon remaining juice from skillet into small bowls for serving with chops and potatoes.

Absolutely divine! Definitely a hit with the whole family. I am going to be making these again. I did the pork chops only. I had the loaded mashed cauliflower as the side dish instead.

Love this recipe! I was skeptical of the mustard/syrup mixture, but it was delicious. I cut the potatoes, tossed them with olive oil and truffle salt and baked them. They added great flavor to the pork!

Couldn't find any good sweet potatoes at the store, so I just made the pork chops and had some green beans with it. Very flavorful, very sweet, which is my favorite. Also good as a sandwich! Definitely doing this one again.

Loved this dish! Full of flavor. I actually baked this in the oven for 40min instead of cooking in skillet.

Is this ever a winner! I followed the recipe except for substituting organic maple syrup for the flavored stuff and real butter for the margarine. It was wonderful! I think I left the heat a little too high, because there was no remaining sauce, it all carmelized to the skillet. However, I scraped it up pretty easily with the spatula and put it on the chops and potatoes and it was delicious too, with just a hint of smoky. I foresee more pork chops hitting my grocery cart in the future!

I gave it 4 stars, my wife 3 (see "our" rating). As some of the other female reviewers noted, the oregano was a bit much. I think if it were reduced by half the dish would be better. Definitely a recipe that needs to be "tweaked" to individual tastes. The side(s) also make a big difference. Still, it was easy to make, tasty, required few ingredients and clean-up so we will make it again with a couple of minor changes.
