Episode 611: Chile Oil/Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes and chile oil make for a sweet and spicy East-West duo in this week's SIMPLY MING recipes. Chef Ming Tsai makes an all-in-one Chile Chicken with Sweet Potato Tamale. Then, Ming's off to Miami to cook with one of Florida's favorite chefs, Michael Schwartz, who uses the East-West combination to make Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Celery Salad, Toasted Walnuts and Chile Oil Vinaigrette. Back in the studio kitchen, Ming makes Sweet Potato Fries with Chile Aioli, his all-in-one version of fries that will make you forget about traditional French fries! Later, Ming shares a recipe that is perfect for a brunch buffet, a Spicy Sweet Potato and Sausage Frittata prepared in one skillet.
