Long time no post. This has been in my drafts for way too long. It's a great recipe we really enjoyed.
It's been the usual crazy here in my house, hope to be posting again soon.
Brown Sugar and Rum Glazed Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Lime
original recipe by Bobby Flay, from the book Barbecue Addiction
4 sweet potatoes
salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup dark rum
grated zest and juice of 1 lime
1/4 cup olive oil
Put the sweet potatoes in a large pot, cover with cold water by 2 inches, and add 2 tablespoons salt. Bring to a boil and cook until a skewer or paring knife inserted into the center of a sweet potato meets with slight resistance, about 30 minutes. Drain well and let cool. Cut each sweet potato into wedges.
Heat grill to medium.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan, add the brown sugar, stir and cook until smooth. Increase the heat, add the rum, and cook until reduced by about half. Add the lime zest and juice; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Brush the sweet potatoes with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill until golden brown on each side, about 2-3 minutes. Brush with some of the rum glaze and grill for one minute longer.
Remove the sweet potatoes to a platter and brush with more of the glaze.
