Crock Pot Malaysian Sweet Potatoes

READY IN: 5hrs 15mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

Has a fruity but nicely Asian sauce that is poured over the potatoes when they get done. Not your everyday stuff.

Top Review by Bergy

These sweet potatoes are excellent. I have just started using sweet potatoes as a regular veggie instead of potatoes and enjoy them very much. I have trouble getting lemon grass so had to omit this and although nowhere like it I used a squeeze of lemon. Also Tamarind paste was missing from my cupboard and as I am familiar with the flavor I substituted a very well aged spoon of chutney (l996) and the sweetpotatoes were wonderful There was a tang to the flavor from the zest of lemon and the 1/2 tsp of cayenne. They were golden and complimented the colours of the broccoli and cauliflower on my plate. The meat was a plain seasoned grilled porkchop Great Meal thanks SueL
