Breaded Pork with Diced Sweet Potatoes and Asparagus


Boneless Pork Loins
2 large Sweet Potatoes, Peeled and Diced

  • Heat large pan on medium. Wait until pan is hot before adding oil. While pan is warming cut fat from pork. Take two small bowls and mix two eggs in one and add bread crumbs to other. Roll Pork in egg mixture and drop in bread crumbs. Completely cover and when pan is hot carefully place pork into pan. Cook on each side until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees and then letting the meat sit for three minutes per instructions from the USDA.

Season to taste with salt and pepper and cook for 10-12 minutes while stirring. Halfway through the cooking process add another 2-4 tablespoons of butter and mix in. When sweet potatoes are soft reduce heat to low and add brown sugar. Cook for additional two minutes.
