Today’s recipe uses one of their new OlivExtra Special Blends-
Their OlivExtra California Select is a blend of Safflower Oil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It has a super high smokepoint (500 degrees) which makes it great for high-heat cooking.
This recipe came to mind when I was looking for a way to repurpose some leftover pork tenderloin. Hubby and I love to grill pork tenderloin. It’s easy, healthy and makes a lot of leftovers so we can use them throughout the week. I try to get creative with the leftovers so we’re not just eating slices of pork every night.
This time I decided to make use of some of my Fall produce and make a quick saute that I could use as a topping for the pork. Since apples and pork go really well together, I started there…and then I added some leeks and sweet potato that I had on hand, along with some apple cider!
The benefit of being able to heat the oil to high heat means that this comes together quickly and dinner was ready in no-time!

10 Minute Sweet Potato and Apple Saute
A quick, easy topping to jazz up leftover pork or chicken.
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Cook Time: 10 minutes
- Total Time: 15 minutes
- Yield: 4
- 1 Tablespoon Pompeian OlivExtra California Select oil
- 1/2 cup leeks, thinly sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup sweet potato, finely diced
- 1 medium apple, diced
- 1 cup apple cider
- 1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon paprkia
- Heat the oil in a saute pan over high heat.
- Add the leeks, garlic, sweet potato and apple and saute for 5 minutes.
- Reduce heat to medium and add remaining ingredients.
- Saute another 5 minutes or until sweet potatoes reach desired tenderness.
- Serve over sliced pork or chicken.
The key to this recipe is dicing the sweet potatoes fairly small. You want them to cook quickly so little chunks are best!
This topping would work well on pretty much any protein. It adds some Fall flavor without being super labor intensive. Quick and easy is what it’s all about at 37 weeks pregnant!
