Why I Love This Recipe

This comes from the TV chef Emeril Lagasse. My entire family loves this dish.


Ingredients You'll Need

4 thick pork chops, 6 to 8-ounces each
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons all-purpose 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 pure cane syrup
1/4 cup chopped green onions
Chopped parsley leaves, for garnish


Directions

Season the pork chops with Cajun seasoning


In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat.


Add the chops and cook until brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side.


Transfer the chops to a warm platter and cover to keep warm.


Reduce the heat to medium.


Add the flour.


Stirring constantly, cook until roux is the color of chocolate, about 3 minutes. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 6 minutes.


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.


Simmer until the pork is cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes, basting the chops with the gravy.


Remove from the heat and serve immediately. Garnish with parsley.
