  • cooking spray

  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard

  • cup brown sugar

  • cup all purpose flour

  • 3 pounds pork loin, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 sweet onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 ⅓ cups chicken broth

  • 1 cup dry sherry

  • 3 pounds sweet potatoes, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed dried rosemary

  • ¼ teaspoon thyme

  • salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a large casserole dish or Dutch oven with cooking spray.

  2. Place Dijon mustard in a bowl. Combine brown sugar and flour in a second bowl. Coat pork cubes with Dijon, then toss in brown sugar-flour mixture to coat.

  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

Cook's Note:

To make this in the Crock-Pot, transfer the stew to your slow cooker after Step 3. Let cook on Low for 8 hours.


Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
