Fall is right around the corner, and that means Thanksgiving is not too far behind. Impress your dinner party with something untraditional with this pulled pork stuffed sweet potatoes.
The ingredients needed are 2 sweet onions, cut into chunks, ½ cup reduced-sodium beef broth, 2 pounds boneless pork loin roast, ½ teaspoon chili powder, ½ teaspoon cumin, ½ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon black pepper, ½ teaspoon garlic powder, 1 cup Stubb’s Original All Natural Bar-B-Q Sauce, ¼ cup apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, and 8 medium-sized sweet potatoes.
First, put the onion chunks and beef broth in a slow cooker and set aside. Next, trim the fat from pork. In a small bowl, mix chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Rub this mixture generously over the pork. Place the meat in the slow cooker, and cook on low for 8-9 hours or on high for 4-4½ hours.
About 45 minutes before pork is ready, set the oven to 400º F. Wash sweet potatoes and use a fork to pierce them several times. Place the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet lined with foil, and bake for 45 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
You can microwave the sweet potatoes to save time! Pierce each sweet potato several times with a fork, and evenly arrange them on a microwave-safe dish. Cook on high for 4-5 minutes for the first potato, and 2-3 minutes for each additional potato. Flip potatoes halfway through cooking.
By not the meat should be done. Remove from the slow cooker and place in a large bowl. Use a slotted spoon to remove onion chunks and place in the same bowl as the pork. Using forks, pull meat apart. Your hands work well too.
In another large bowl, combine BBQ sauce, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Pour over shredded pork and onions and mix thoroughly to coat.
Using a knife, slice sweet potatoes down the middle, creating an open center. Fill each sweet potato with about 4 ounces of the meat. For optimum taste, drizzle ½ tablespoon of BBQ sauce over the top of each potato.
Yummy! SHARE the love and pass it on.
