Chili Garlic Sweet Potatoes

Surprisingly I tasted this dish at an all-you-can-eat Brazilian Steak house in Jerusalem, but thought it would be just perfect for my little bit country menu - especially when I saw the bottle of Chili-Garlic sauce on the shelf at my local market. A blend of ground chilies, garlic and vinegar, Chili-Garlic Sauce can usually be found in the Asian section of larger supermarkets (and apparently small Israeli markets as well) and will keep for up to 1 year in the refrigerator after opening.

  4. I’m not Jewish, but I do enjoy reading the recipes, and was intrigued by this one. My nearest store didn’t have the needed sauce, so I put some chili powder, garlic powder, a bit of cumin and vinegar. Turned out great!
