We have revived the recipe review game over at the At Goal and Maintaining + Transition to Maintenance team. I had this one saved for ages, so it was a perfect time to try it.
Mom's Slow Cooker Pork Chops and Sweet Potatoes
Here is a link to the recipe
This was really simple to put together and cooked nicely in my slow cooker. Per some of the other reviews, I sprinkled a little cinnamon and nutmeg over the top of the sweet potatoes (I used raw, not canned).
I think everyone in the family loved this but me :( I found the whole dish really bland. I'm certainly not ready to give up on it yet as it was healthy and easy. I may try just a tad brown sugar on the sweet potatoes next time or maybe two cans of cranberry sauce (they were the only thing that I really liked). I also might try browning the chops before putting them in.
This recipe got a ton of great reviews on sparkrecipes and I'm no food snob, so I'm really surprised. Like I said, I think it may just need a little tinkering.
