  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a large casserole dish or Dutch oven with cooking spray.
  2. Combine brown sugar and flour in a bowl. Place Dijon mustard in a separate bowl. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Coat pork cubes with Dijon mustard and toss in brown sugar mixture to coat. Brown coated pork cubes on all sides in hot olive oil, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer browned pork into prepared casserole dish, leaving oil in skillet.
  3. Cook and stir onion and garlic in the hot skillet until onions are soft, about 5 minutes. Stir chicken broth, sherry, sweet potato cubes, black pepper, rosemary, thyme, and salt into onion; bring to a boil. Pour sweet potato mixture over pork and cover casserole dish.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 50 minutes; uncover and bake until pork is no longer pink inside and sweet potato cubes are tender, about 20 more minutes.

I had high hopes for this but have to say I was very disappointed with the results. Nothing special and a lot of prep work.

This is a keeper for me. The only change I made is to use 2 pounds of pork and 3 large sweet potatoes. Yummy on a cold winter evening.

My husband and sons loved this recipe and asked that I keep it for future meals. I was surprisingly a bit more neutral. Though I am someone who likes food a bit on the bland side, this tasted ...
