Prep and roast the sweet potato
Heat the oven to 400°F.
- Scrub or peel the sweet potato. Cut the potato in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
On a sheet pan [2 sheet pans], drizzle the sweet potato with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season generously with salt and pepper and the sweet smoked paprika and toss to coat. Spread in an even layer and roast, turning once halfway through, until the potato is tender and lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the rest of the meal.
Make the coleslaw
- Peel the apple, if desired; core and thinly slice.
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal.
In a medium bowl, stir together the slaw dressing base and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the apple, scallions, cabbage, and carrots and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Prep and cook the pork
- Pat the pork dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the pork and cook, turning once, until lightly browned on both sides but not yet cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Brush with the orange chipotle glaze, turn the pork over, and brush with more glaze. Continue to cook, turning frequently and occasionally brushing with more glaze, until the pork is browned but still faintly pink within, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Transfer the pork, sweet potato, and coleslaw to individual plates and serve.
- Toss the sweet potato with oil and seasonings.
- Stir the slaw dressing base and oil.
- Assemble the coleslaw.
- Time the cooking.
