Jamaican Pork and Sweet Potato Stir-Fry
- Prepare rice according to package directions. Stir half of the green onion into cooked rice. Meanwhile, peel sweet potato. Cut into quarters lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise.* Place in a microwave-safe pie plate or shallow dish. Cover with vented plastic wrap. Microwave on 100-percent power (high) for 3 to 4 minutes or until tender, stirring once. Cut apple into 16 wedges. Sprinkle pork strips with Jamaican jerk seasoning; toss to coat evenly.
- Pour oil into a wok or large skillet. (Add more oil, if necessary, during cooking.) Preheat over medium-high heat. Stir-fry seasoned pork in hot oil for 2 minutes. Add apple and remaining green onion; stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes or until pork is no longer pink. Stir in sweet potato and apple juice. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 1 minute more. Serve over rice mixture. Makes 4 servings.
