Just because I made this stew in the Advantium doesn’t mean you can’t tinker with the recipe and make it in your oven. Your cooking time will be longer in the oven.
Pork and Sweet Potato Stew
Adapted from The GE Advantium Cookbook
BAH Note: I finally figured out how to cut sweet potato into perfect cubes. Cut a thin slice off of one long side of the sweet potato. Rotate the sweet potato so that the flat side is down on your cutting board. Now cut a thin slice off of the left and right side of the sweet potato. Rotate the sweet potato one more so that the last uncut side is accessible and cut a thin slice off it. You’ve basically just squared your sweet potato. Cut the pointy (or rounded) ends and remove any remaining peel. Cut the sweet potato lengthwise into 1/4 inch thick “boards”. Lay each “board” on your cutting surface and cut them lengthwise into 1/4 inch sticks. Cut the sticks into cubes. Viola!
- 2 pounds pork tenderloin, cut into 1 inch medallions
- 1 large onion, diced (or 1 cup butter braised onions)
- 1 red pepper, diced
- l large sweet potato, cut into 1/2 inch cubes (approximately 2 cups)
- 1 1/2 cups apple cider (can substitute chicken broth)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon allspice
- 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 2 medium apples, peeled, cored, and diced
- 1/4 cup sliced green onion
Lightly coat a 4 quart casserole dish with cooking spray and add the pork, onion, and diced red pepper. Microwave on power level 7 for 10 minutes. Carefully remove the dish from the Advantium and stir the contents.
Add the sweet potato, apple cider, salt, paprika, cumin, allspice and red pepper flakes to the casserole dish. Cover and place in the Advantium on the metal baking tray (use potholders to remove the glass tray).
Press the SpeedCook button then scroll to My Recipes, New Recipe. Set the cook time for 20 minutes and then use the following settings: U=4, L=4, M=5. After 20 minutes, carefully remove the casserole dish, add the apples and stir. Cover and continue to cook another 10 to 15 minutes at the same settings until the pork is done.
