Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 cups quick-cooking rice
  • 14 cup thinly-sliced green onion
  • 1 large sweet potato (about 12 oz.)
  • 1 medium tart apple, cored
  • 12 ounces lean boneless pork, strips for stir-frying
  • 2 -3 teaspoons jamaican jerk spice
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 13 cup apple juice or 13 cup water


  1. Prepare rice according to package directions. Stir half of the green onions into cooked rice. Meanwhile, peel sweet potato and cut in quarters lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Place in a microwave-safe shallow dish. Cover with vented plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 3 to 4 minutes or until tender, stirring once. Cut apple into 16 wedges.
  2. Sprinkle meat strips with Jamaican jerk seasoning; toss to coat evenly. Pour oil into a wok or large skillet. Preheat over medium-high heat (add more oil during cooking if necessary). Stir fry meat for 2 minutes. Add apple and remaining green onions and stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes or until meat is slightly pink in center.
  3. Stir sweet potato and apple juice into meat mixture. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 1 minute more. Serve meat mixture over rice mixture.
