3Add sweet potatoes and onion to skillet, saute 3 to 4 minutes, until tender.
4Combine brown sugar, cornstarch, salt (optional), vinegar, and orange juice. Mix well. My Family is low sodium diet, so I don't use salt in my recipe for my family.
5Return chops to skillet with sweet potatoes and onions, pour Orange Juice mixture over pork chops.
6Cover skillet, reduce heat, and simmer for 40 to 60 minutes or until chops are tender. The last 15 minutes of cooking, add chopped apple on top of pork chops.
