Pork Chops And Sweet Potato Gravy

  • Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 thick pork chops (6 to 7 ounces each)
  • 2 teaspoons Rustic Rub
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced onions
  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 pound sweet potatoes, baked, peeled, and mashed (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons SteenĂ­s 100% Pure Cane Syrup
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions

Directions

  • Season the pork chops with the rub. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and brown the chops, about 5 minutes on each side. Transfer the chops to a warm platter and set aside.
  • Reduce the heat to medium. Add the flour and, stirring constantly, cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the roux is dark brown, the color of chocolate. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 6 minutes, or until wilted. Add the pecans, water, salt, and cayenne and mix well. Bring to a boil. Add the sweet potatoes and blend to make a smooth mixture. Stir in the syrup and green onions. Return the pork chops to the pan, reduce the heat, and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes, basting the chops with the gravy.
  • Serve immediately.
