Simple Dinner with Sweet Potato.

Minced Meat & Sweet Potato /Loquat
Loquat....I just checked this name in English....the orange fruits which we call BIWA in Japanese.  Juicy, fresh flavor, not to sweet.

Between brown rice and miso soup, the main dish is cooked ground pork and sweet potato.

Very simple dinner of one night.  Healthy though.

Ingredients:
Sweet potato --- 1 or 2 pieces... depending on the size.
Ground pork  --- 100 g or as you like.

A table spoon of oil ( I used grape seed oil. you can use any such as olive oil.)
A pinch of salt
A table spoon of sake or white wine
A tea spoon of soy sauce
A tea spoon of brown sugar ( or sugar, maple syrup, honey...)
A 1/2 cup of water
A tea spoon of dashi powder ( or granulated powder of soup stock)

1.  Put the oil in the heated pan.
     Start cooking ground pork in a heated pan at medium heat.
     When the color changed, add the cut sweet potato.
2.  Add a pinch of salt, sugar, sake, dashi powder and water.
3.  Keep cooking.  If the potato is well cooked and the liquid in the pan is boiled down, ready to serve.

Sweet, soy sauce flavored potato.  Enjoy!
