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

Wash produce before use


Make the sweet potato mash

  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 2 teaspoons [1 TBL]; set aside half for the sauce. 
  • Peel the sweet potatoes. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.

In a medium sauce pot over medium heat, warm 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil until hot but not smoking. Add half the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the sweet potatoes and enough lightly salted water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, reduce to a vigorous simmer, and cook until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and return to the pot. Add 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil or butter (from your pantry). Using the back of a spoon or a masher, coarsely mash the potatoes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and keep warm. 

While the potatoes cook, prepare the pork. 


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 2 to 3 teaspoons 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. Spoon off all but 1 to 2 teaspoons fat from the pan.
While the pork cooks, prepare the sauce ingredients.


Prep the remaining sauce ingredients; make the sauce

  • Trim the ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions. Set aside 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] green parts for garnish. 
  • Coarsely chop the olives, checking for any pits.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. 
  • Measure ¼ teaspoon [½ tsp] oregano for the sauce; save the rest for another use. 

In the same pan used for the pork, if dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Warm over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the scallions and remaining garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Reduce the heat to low and add the sherry vinaigrette base, olives, parsley, ¼ teaspoon [½ tsp] oregano, and a pinch of sugar (from your pantry), if desired. Cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until the sauce is thickened slightly, 1 to 2 minutes. If you prefer a thinner sauce, stir in water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until the desired consistency is reached. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Transfer the pork and sweet potato mash to individual plates and spoon as much sauce as you like over the pork. Garnish with the remaining scallions and serve any remaining sauce on the side.
