Once again, my organic produce delivery inspired a wonderful dinner! This week’s delivery included organic sweet potatoes, onions and apples. I love to cook apples and onions with pork. I thought the sweet potatoes would be a good add. The apples and sweet potatoes are both pretty sweet, so I wanted to a some savory spices to balance out the dish.
1/2 – 3/4 lb pork chops or pork loin, diced
1/2 – 3/4 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
1/2 red onion, diced
1 tbsp canola oil
1 apple, diced
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp ground all spice
1/8 tsp cinnamon
In a dutch oven over medium heat, heat canola oil until beginning to smoke. Add pork, onion and sweet potatoes and cook, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes. Add apple, chicken broth and all seasonings and simmer on medium-low heat for 30 minutes with lid askew, so steam can escape. This will allow everything to cook through, but the broth to reduce.
I served this over brown rice (1 & 1/2 cup instant brown rice, 1 & 3/4 cup water). Making about 4 servings.
