Get dinner on the table in 30 minutes with this one-skillet pork and sweet potato recipe.


  • 3 sweet potatoes or yams, scrubbed and chopped (4 cups)
  • 1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • Black pepper
  • 8 peeled garlic, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons water


  1. Place sweet potatoes in a large microwave safe bowl. Cover with vented plastic wrap and cook on high for 8 minutes or until tender, stirring once halfway through cooking.
  2. Meanwhile, cut pork into 1-inch thick pieces. Butterfly slices by making a horizontal slit about 3/4 of the way through the slice; open up and flatten slightly, using the palm of your hand. Brush each slice with some of the soy sauce and sprinkle lightly with pepper.
  3. In a 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic, cook until garlic begins to crisp and turn golden*. Remove with a slotted spoon; set aside. Add pork slices to the skillet and cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until just a bit of pink remains in the center. Remove to a platter; cover and keep warm.
  4. Add potatoes to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to get crisp and golden on the edges. Add green onion; cook 1 minute more. Divide potatoes among individual shallow bowls or plates. Top with pork and garlic.
  5. Return skillet to heat; add honey, water, and remaining soy sauce; whisk to combine and heat just until bubbly. Drizzle over pork and serve.


  • * You want the garlic golden but not too brown. Burnt garlic will be bitter.
