Pork with Sweet Potatoes
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 20 min.
Great blend of flavors and so quick and easy! Will definitely make again.
I tweaked the recipe to suit my ingredients on hand and seasonings we enjoy. Because I had pork tenderloin "tips" weighing 2.5 lbs and 3 large sweet potatoes, I increased the flour to 1 c. in a plastic ziplock bag (gallon size) and added these seasonings: 1/2 tsp each Nutmeg & Lemon Pepper, and 1 tsp. each salt and dry English mustard powder. After parboiling the diced sweet potatoes for 4 minutes (should've done longer for 6-8 minutes--we're at 5,280 ft in Denver), I drained them in a colander and set aside. I put half of the sliced and pounded pork tenderloin slices into the flour bag and shook them and then browned them in the dutch oven (in canola oil) I'd used to parboil the potatoes. I took them out and browned the other half of pork slices after shaking them in the flour mixture. After all were browned and removed, I poured 1 c. each of vegetable broth and orange juice into that same dutch oven with the drained sweet potatoes and 1 c. dried cranberries plus 1/2 tsp. dry English mustard and approximately 1-2 tsp. ground cinnamon. After bringing to a boil, I covered and turned the heat down and let simmer 10 minutes. Then, I added the browned pork slices back in and covered and let simmer another 10 minutes and thickened up the sauce with some corn starch mixed with water. Finally, I mixed in the sliced apple and let simmer another 3-4 minutes. Our family enjoyed it very much, plus we had enough leftovers for another dinner--which I like to have when cooking weeknight dinners. I do think that you need to add seasonings beyond the basic recipe, so season and flavor to your own personal taste.
Good recipe, but I agree it lacks seasoning. The sweet potatoes did take longer to ocok, but we are at a high altitude. Next time I'd add some cinnamon, perhaps.
Quick and easy. Great flavors!
My family really liked this. I'll definitely make it again.
Read the reviews here, looked forward to making this. Looked pretty enough for company, but I'm glad I made it only for us, first. There was very little flavor in this, quite disappointing. The pork was tender enough, but if you make this, either parboil your sweet potatoes, use canned or cook for a lot longer like I had to. My husband said if the had ordered this in a restaurant, he wouldn't order it again.
We really enjoyed the blend of flavors. I'll make it again soon.
Tasty blend of unique flavors. Very tasty and quick to make.
This was tasty and easy for a weeknight dinner. I only had whole berry cranberry sauce and seeded mustard, but they both worked out quite well. Will try this again as written.
