4 boneless pork loin chops, cut 1-inch thick
Salt and ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes (3 cups)
1 small yellow onion, cut into thin wedges 
2 tablespoons butter, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage leaves



Prep: 25min | Chill: 2 to 24 hours | Ready in: 2hr 25min - 24hr 25min

Step 1

Trim excess fat from chops. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.


Step 2

In a 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add pork chops. Cook 8 to 10 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted through the side into the centers registers 145°F, turning once halfway through cooking. Remove from skillet. Cover with foil.


Step 3

Add sweet potatoes and onion to the skillet with 1 tablespoon of the butter. Sprinkle with additional salt and ground black pepper. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender and onions are caramelized.


Step 4

To skillet, add garlic, remaining 1 tablespoon butter, brown sugar and sage; cook, stirring frequently, 2 minutes more. Return pork chops to skillet just to heat through.
