Pork-and-Sweet-Potato-Hash-1

Pork And Sweet Potato Hash

Have you discovered the delight of sweet potatoes? Not only do they have a lower GI than their more common relations, they also add great taste to any dish; especially when fried (like here) or roasted.

Serves: 4 with leftover meat
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 60 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1.8kg boneless pork shoulder
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 800ml chicken stock
  • 8 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 800g sweet potato, peeled and chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • ½ tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 500g mushrooms, quartered

To serve:
3 spring onions, sliced

Instructions

1. Heat half of the oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat. Season the pork evenly with salt and black pepper, then add to the pan. Cook for 8-10 minutes, turning to brown on all sides. Add the stock and garlic to the pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 50 minutes or until the pork is tender. Remove the pork from the pan, reserving the cooking liquid and garlic. Allow the pork to cool slightly, then shred with two forks.

2. Heat the remaining olive oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat. Add the sweet potatoes and onion, and cook for 5-6 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Add the chilli flakes and mushrooms, and cook for 2-3 minutes.

3. Add the cooking liquid and garlic and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium, and cook, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until the liquid has nearly evaporated, stirring occasionally. Stir in the pork, and cook for 2-3 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with spring onions to serve.
