Coffee Rubbed Pork over Cocoa Infused Sweet Potatoes with Blueberry Glaze
 
Ingredients
For the pork--
  • 2-2.5 lb pork loin roast
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons coriander
  • 2 teaspoons coffee
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon coconut crystals (optional)
For the Sweet Potatoes--
  • 1-2 large sweet potatoes, chopped and boiled until tender
  • 1 6oz can coconut milk
  • 2-3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
For the Blueberry Sauce--
  • 1 container of blueberries (about 2 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon ground mustard
  • 1 6oz can tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • juice of ½ lemon
Instructions
  1. Let's get to this pork. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Now throw all your spices into a shallow bowl or tray. Mix them all together. Now cover your pork in a bit of coconut oil, then submerge your pork into the spices. And when I say submerge, I mean spice that crap out of it. All around it. On the ends. Coat it until it won't hold anymore spice on it.
  3. Put your roast into a baking dish and throw in the oven, uncovered, for 45-50 minutes. Your pork should cook for 20-22 minutes/lb or until it reaches an internal temperature of around 160-170 degrees.
  4. While your pork cooks, start boiling your sweet potatoes.
  5. While the sweet potatoes boil, pull out a small saucepan and add your red wine vinegar and blueberries to it, over low heat. Once the blueberries begin to cook down, add all the rest of the ingredients. Mix well and let it cook down over low heat.
  6. Once the sweet potatoes are tender, add them to your food processor with the coconut milk. Once mixed, add your spices. Taste to see if you are content or would like more cocoa powder for a bit more boldness. You probably will. Why wouldn't you.
  7. Once the pork is done cooking, let it rest for at least 15 minutes. Slice, serve a top sweet potatoes and top off with some blueberry goodness. Oh sh*t yeah!
