I've been totally neglecting a bag of sweet potatoes that I have hidden in my kitchen for almost a month. yesterday night I got creative and I was pleasantly surprised

Sweet Potato and beef Stew
  • 1.5 lbs beef stew
  • 5 medium sized sweet potatoes peeled and chopped in cubes
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic chopped
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • water
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped leeks
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Add the oil to a warm medium sized pan (I used my pressure cooker)
  2. Once the oil is hot saute the onions and garlic
  3. add the beef stew and brown on all sides
  4. all the chopped sweet potatoes stir for about a minute
  5. add water until it covers the potatoes and beef
  6. cook until meat is tender (30 minutes in a pressure cooker)
  7. in a medium sized sauce pan melt the butter and cream cheese
  8. add the chives and leeks and stir.
  9. add the beef and sweet potato, without the water, and mix into the cream cheese mixture
  10. The potatoes will become a thick puree.
  11. add salt and pepper to taste.
  12. serve with warm rice.
