Adobo de Chancho con Camote (Pork adobo and sweet potato)

This is one of my husband's favorite dish and I happened to like it too. We normally eat this with boiled sweet potato. The pork has a little kick of spice to it, so the sweet potato kinda tranquilizes it. I mean, I like spicy, so for me, it kills the spicy taste. However, my husband doesn't really like spicy food...soo this works for.  (hahaha but I made this spicier than normal.) I'm sharing the recipe with y'll.

1.5 lbs pork chops
1/4 teaspoon of cumin
1/4 teaspoon of oregano
1 tablespoon of aji panca (depending your taste)
3 tablespoon of red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon of garlic
1/4 salt + pepper
Mix all the ingredient together and marinate with the pork for 8hrs or overnight it for better taste. Put it inside the refrigerator.

The next day..,
3 tablespoon of vegetable oil
3/4 red onion small diced
1 tablespoon of garlic
fry all until golden brown.

1/4 teaspoon of oregano
1 pork cube bouillon
1/4 teaspoon of cumin
2 tablespoon of aji panca (I like mine spicy)
a splash of red wine vinegar
Let it shimmer for 3 mins

Then add
marinated pork

Add a dash of ajinomoto

Cook it with lid close until they are ready.

 For the sweet potato:
 boil water and add 1 teaspoon full of sugar
boil the sweet potato until it is soft.
