    We looove sweet and spicy! I sliced my potatoes really thin so they'd cook in time. After I browned the pork, I threw the potatoes, apples, and onion into the skillet and sauteed for a few minutes. I also added some applesauce for extra moisture. YUM! We'll make it again for sure! - 5/13/09

    I used pork roast and halved the sweet potatoes, and omitted the sugar. It was great and a keeper! - 2/3/10

    I enjoyed this, but there was too much spice on the vegetables for my liking (and that is saying something!) Next time I will slice the sweet potatoes thinner and the apples thicker so they are all the same consistency when done. - 12/7/09

    Yes, you may need to adjust the seasonings. I've never measured them. I just sprinkle until it looks good to me, so the measurements are estimated.

    Very good flavor. I am going to try others suggestions to add applesauce to make it more moist. I used some brown sugar too, which I really liked. The apple/potato/onion mixture should be tossed around a little during cooking so the top doesn't dry out too much. - 12/2/10

    The veggies take longer than 25 minutes. I had to remove the pork and continue cooking the veggies for at least another 45 minutes. I think the potatoes need to be precooked and sprinkling the spices to taste is highly recommended as I followed the recipe and almost choked on the amount of spice. - 3/15/10

    This was a good recipe. I did substitute the apples for a cup of applesauce. I put it in the crockpot for about 5 hours. I didn't enjoy the flavors as much as I thought I was going to. I think I might leave out the red pepper if I made it again. - 10/2/09

  • The potatoes and apples were two dry; needed more sauce; next time I will cover the pan to produce some steam into the dish. - 11/12/13

  • this is really good, but spicy! I'm very sensitive, but even found the apples spicy. I will have to tweak it some I think, possibly add some apple cider - 2/5/12

  • Used a little less than the Tbl's indicated for the spices, and tossed the apple, potato, and onion with 1Tbl of olive oil before going into the oven. Very good! Horseradish with the pork chops adds a nice contrast!! - 1/19/12

  • This is a workable recipe. The sweet potatoes had to cook another half hour, which left the pork chops dry. Next time I will pre-cook the sweet potatoes and onions, or perhaps cut the sweet potatoes in bite-size chunks instead of slices so they will be done sooner. A tasty one-dish meal. - 12/19/11

  • I think all the spices should be teaspoons, not Tablespoons (t vs. T)! I saw the capital T and used tablespoons -- I had to rinse it to be able to eat it! It had a nice, though watered down, flavor afterward. If I had used teaspoons, I bet this would be awesome! - 4/22/11
