Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potato.

Instead of buns I love serving pulled pork in a sweet potato. To make things easier I precook my potatoes on a Sunday while watching football and did my pork in a crockpot.


Pork loin- do not use a tenderloin as they are too slim and not enough fat to hold up in a crockpot

Pork rub

1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp ground pepper
1 tbsp paprika
1/2 cup brown sugar

Shredded Gouda or cheddar

Store bought slaw

Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce

2 Jalapeños- diced

4 large sweet potatoes cooked at 400 for one hour

Rub pork with seasoning and place in crockpot with 3/4 cup of water. Cook on high for 1 hour then on low for 5-6 hours. Shred once it falls apart by touch. Add BBQ sauce and turn off pot.

Add pork to cooked sweet potatoes( if you made them ahead of time nuke in microwave for 1 minute) then top with cheese. Cook in microwave for 30 seconds. Add slaw and diced jalapeño.
