2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


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 frequently, until browned but still faintly pink within, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.
While the pork cooks, prepare the vegetables.


Prep the vegetables

  • Scrub or peel the sweet potato. Cut the potato in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Trim the root end from the escarole; coarsely chop the leaves.


Cook the sweet potato bourdeto

In the same pan used for the pork, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the sweet potato, spread in an even layer, and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the vegetable broth and smoky tomato base, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the escarole, and stir until wilted. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the pork and sweet potato bourdeto to individual plates and serve.
