Yah, this is awesome!!!! I served this on the side with my Grandma's sweet & sour pork recipe, and even non-sweet potato eaters loved it!

This recipe is a fun one! It's easy to prep and has great flavor. I did not add the hot sauce, as it called for, and would use less white pepper the next time around. I thought the pepper overwhelmed the other flavors just a bit. Cilantro is a nice addition. We used this for a Hawaiian themed supper club side dish and everyone raved about it. I gave the recipe out to several others and plan to make it again for Thanksgiving dinner as a little twist on traditional sweet potatos.
