I’m not a fan of sweet potatoes. Neither is the big guy at home. But this recipe caught my attention nevertheless. I thought it was an interesting idea to use sweet potatoes as a key ingredient in a stew. That would make for a naturally sweet-tasting gravy that might go well with plain rice.

And it did. The gravy was toothsome; the meat was encased in a naturally candied flavour. Eating the rice with a large scoop of gravy over it was like pouring honey onto a stack of waffles – it makes you anticipate the first bite and gets you eager to start.
