Pork & Sweet Potato Skillet Meal

Hey all.

So I found this very quick and easy recipe in a Whole Foods money saving newsletter. I thought I'd give it a shot! We're always trying new things to make it interesting. And also because I aspire to be a chef of iron man proportions.

This is meant to be a very inexpensive recipe especially when you buy the items listed. I, however, in my great culinary wisdom, purchased pork TENDERLOIN at $8.99/lb. Thus this meal is not $2.89 per serving as quoted in the newsletter, instead $6.00 per meal.


canola oil
1/4 cup of chopped onion
2 pork chops cut into cubes
sweet potato
1 cup white wine or water
1/2 tsp dried thyme

chop up the pork and sweet potato into cubes

the pork was looking a little 'blobby' today

coat the pork in the salt and pepper

i used our favourite seasoning, pepperman

it's at whole foods and you really should buy some.

pop the oil, onion and pork in the skillet

once nice and brown, pour in the cup of vino

add the sweet potato and thyme then cover to simmer until the potatoes are tender (approx 20 to 30 mins)

this angle made my first 3 fingers look the same length. i would like to clarify that they are not. each are at least 1/4 inch different in size to each other. i measured.

the juices will then combine and thicken

your entire house will smell lovely

as there is wine involved in the recipe you may as well play some classical music

when ready, just serve as is. you could add a salad or maybe bread.

the j-man had a cornbread muffin to compliment his meal. that's how he rolls.
