Pan-Roasted Sweet Potatoes

This is a super straightforward but surprisingly tasty way to cook sweet potatoes. They caramelize and cook down a little, and so there are some crusty bits that form deliciously along the way, yielding a side dish that is not quite mashed, but soft and sweet enough for decadence. :)

3 large sweet potatoes, of any type, peeled and cut into uniform chunks approximately 3/4-inch square.
4-6 tbsp. ghee
salt and pepper to taste

Heat the ghee in a heavy-bottomed saucepan with a lid, over medium heat; add the sweet potatoes and salt and pepper, and toss to coat.

Cover the pot, and cook for about 10-20 minutes, stirring every few minutes. When the potatoes soften around the edges and are cooked through and tasty, they are ready!
