Paleo Pork Chops

This was a hearty meal & I thoroughly enjoyed it!!! Pork chops are always a family favorite!
Hope you enjoy!

4 pork chops
2 shallots, chopped
1/2 C white wine
1/2 C chicken broth (low sodium)
1 T olive oil
1/4 C golden raisins
2 small sweet potatoes, sliced
I head red chard
3 cloves garlic, minced

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put sliced sweet potatoes in a baking pan (I sprayed pan with some olive oil cooking spray) and cook for 15 minutes. Trim all visible fat from pork chops. Sprinkle pork with ground pepper and sea salt (optional). Heat 2 tsp olive oil in a skillet and brown pork chops on both sides... remove from pan and put in the baking dish (with the sweet potatoes). Add additional tsp. olive oil to the skillet and saute shallots. Add white wine and golden raisins. When liquid starts to thicken, add chicken broth, and cook for a few more minutes. Pour sauce over pork chops, cover with foil and bake for about 20 minutes (until pork chops are done... that's an internal temp. of 175 degrees).
Meanwhile on stove top... saute red chard in 1 tsp olive oil and garlic. When pork chops are ready serve them on a bed of the red chard with the side of sweet potatoes. It was a tasty combination! The golden raisins and shallots made a tasty sweet pairing! Hope you enjoy!!

This was AMAZING! It's one of my favorite paleo dinners now, and I don't even like pork! I substituted craisins for the raisins and it was fabulous. -Lauren
