  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.

Wow! Did this tonight in the crockpot. Just threw everything in and put it on low for 8 hours. Turned it up to high for an hour to thicken with a bit more flour, and that was it. Super tasty. Everybody loved it. I used 2 teaspoons of each of the herbs, and threw in some bay leaves. Short on wine so used some water and chicken soup base. One of the best things I've made in the crockpot. Will be making this again regularly!

This looked/read like it was gonna be great but it was just "ok" We seem to like our sweat potatoes separate :-/

This got rave reviews. i didn't transfer my pork into another dish after browning it. (why dirty another bowl/dish?) I just pushed it aside in my ovenproof metal skillet and browned the onions and garlic, then used white wine instead of sherry to make a roux. The rosemary and thyme are a nice touch.

Made this yesterday for my daughter's family, who are fussy eaters, they loved it. My daughter, who is a great cook, demanded the recipe. One small change, did not have either sherry or a white wine (we like the reds!!)grabbed a bottle of Merlot and used a generous dollop of that. BuggyBob

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.

Used a pre marinated pork loin (because that's what I had), cut into bite size pieces.. Placed them in a Pam sprayed crock pot, layered with cubed sweet potatoes.. Mixed remaining ingredients (substituted 1/3cup sweet vermouth for the cup of sherry) in a glass bowl, then poured over meat and potatoes. Cooked in low about 6 hours. House smells amazing and dinner was wonderful. Served with a green salad for side. Thanks for this recipe!

Excellent...did not add wine, and it was still very good. Savory and delicious. Takes a while to make, but worth it.

DEEEELicious side of brown rice-used chicken broth for liquid and added cranberries to the liquid and let it come to a boil. Used Marsala wine instead of Sherry. Great flavor
