What type of pork chops for sweet mashed potatoes?
I'm new here and admittedly a terrible cook. I work for my dad at his bar and have to cook specials, which is extremely difficult for me. Anyhoo, I've decided to make pork chops for Monday's special with sweet mashed potatoes. I have a recipe for the latter (which uses sweet potatoes, milk, butter, honey, and brown sugar) but I don't know what type of pork chop would go best with this.
What I have to work with is a boneless pork tenderloin. Normally, I dip each chop into flour, then an egg mixture, then into bread crumbs seasoned with oregano, salt, and pepper. I then brown them in a buttered pan, and finish in the oven (our oven is awful by the way). I then top with gravy. I'm just not sure if this type of pork chop will work with sweet mashed potatoes or if there is something else I could try. I don't mind trying new things, but when I wander into unfamiliar territory I'm more likely to screw up, culminating in me feeling like crap!
Any suggestions?? As well, what's the difference between Red yams and Golden yams? Yams are sweet potatoes, right? Which should I get for my recipe? I checked out the local supermarket and that's what I could find...
