- 2/3 cup LouAna vegetable or canola oil, divided into two separate cups
- 1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
- 1 teaspoon salt, divided in half
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 cups (1/2-inch) cubed fresh or canned sweet potato
- 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1/4 cup sliced green onions (optional)
Preparation and Cooking:
Heat 1/3 cup oil in a Dutch oven (or another thick-walled iron cooking pot with a tight-fitting lid) over medium-high heat.
Place pork in a large zip-top bag. Combine 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, plus pepper, cumin and cinnamon; sprinkle over pork. Add flour to pork mixture; seal bag. Shake to coat.
Add pork mixture to pan; saute 4 minutes, turning to brown on all sides. Remove pork from pan.
Heat remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, potato and onion to pan; saute 3 minutes. Add garlic; saute 1 minute, stirring often.
Return pork to pan. Stir in broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 25 minutes or until pork is done and vegetables are tender. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon green onions over each serving, if desired.
