Spicy Stir-fried Sweet Potatoes - Recipe


3/4 cup chicken broth or water
3 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Zest of 1 navel orange, cut julienne
1 tablespoon oil
1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1 teaspoon or more Oriental chili paste
1 1/2 pounds (about 4 medium) sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 julienne, then in 1/2 diagonal lengths
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon minced scallion greens


Combine first 7 ingredients for sauce. Set aside. In a small saucepan of boiling water, blanch orange zest 1 1/2 minutes. Drain and pat dry.

Heat oil in a wok or large skillet that has a cover. Add orange zest, garlic, ginger, and chili paste and stir-fry until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Add sweet potatoes and stir-fry until coated, about 30 seconds.

Re-stir sauce and add to sweet potatoes. Bring to a boil, then cook, covered, over moderate heat until sweet potatoes are tender but not soft, 10 - 12 minutes.

Dissolve cornstarch in water and add to sweet potatoes, stirring until thickened. Stir in scallions.
