4 double bone pork chops
1 cup mustard sauce (recipe below)
4 portions whipped sweet potatoes (recipe below)
2 cups apple chutney (recipe below)


Grill or roast the pork chops to your desired temperature. Let the chops rest, covered with foil, for five minutes before serving.

To set up the plates, put two ounces of mustard sauce on each plate. Then place a scoop of the sweet potatoes in the middle of the plate. Stand the pork chop up in the potatoes with the bones extending upward. Generously drape the chutney over the sauce and serve.
