“A quick and tasty one pot meal! The original recipe comes from the Pressured Cook and includes Sweet Potatoes, however I've found it very difficult to keep from over cooking the sweet potatoes so substituted red potatoes. Also made some other changes to the recipe to 'kick it up a notch'. Total time includes marinading the pork chops.”
