These BBQ Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes are perfect for food prep. Make a big batch of pulled pork and sweet potatoes, stuff them ahead of time and reheat to eat for lunch or dinner.
Say hello to our new favorite dish for food prep! I made this last weekend and actually had to whip up a couple more mid-week because hubby ate them all and requested more.
They’re so easy that they’re more of a recipe idea than an actual recipe – ingredient quantities aren’t really that important because you can basically make as many or as few as you’d like.
I used my Instant Pot (surprise surprise) to make the pork. Basically, I do the same think I do in my crockpot, except it’s ready in an hour instead of 8 hours. Have I mentioned you should get an Instant Pot yet? (affiliate link)
To cook the pork: I chopped up some onion and garlic and a red pepper and put it in the bottom of the pot. Then I cut a 4-5 pound pork shoulder into 6-8 large pieces and put those in the Instant Pot. Pour in 1 cup chicken broth and seal the lid. Use the manual button and increase the time to 1 hour. Once it’s done, do a quick release of the steam and shred the pork. Alternatively, you can put all the ingredients in a crockpot and cook on low for 8 hours.
To cook the sweet potatoes: I put some shallow slices in all sides of mine with a knife and microwave 2 medium sweet potatoes at a time in the microwave for 6-7 minutes. You can also make a big batch in the Instant Pot before or after your pork is done, or roast them in the oven until soft for a little more flavor.
Once you have your cooked pork and sweet potatoes, you’re ready to stuff them!Print
