FILIPINO PULLED PORK WITH SWEET POTATOES

November 5, 2018

Consider this a little new flavor for your crockpot meal rotations. When making pork loin I am pretty exclusive to the crock. They just do so well in there! There’s almost no other way! And then it shreds up so easily.

And sweet potatoes as a side are one of our favorites. The hearty-but-still-sweet-ness is a perfect complement to so many savories. Including this pork right here.

Filipino Pulled Pork with Sweet Potatoes
Serves four

1 and 1/2 pound pork loin
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
6 cloves garlic, smashed
1 teaspoon pepper
6 bay leaves
3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons milk
Green onions, sliced

Place pork loin in slow cooker with soy sauce, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, garlic, pepper, and bay leaves.

Cook on low for 7-8 hour or high for 5-6 hours.

Place sweet potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Bring to boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.

Mash sweet potatoes in a stand mixer with butter, honey, and milk.

Shred pork loin and serve with sweet potatoes and green onion.

    Looks delicious! Can’t wait to try this! It combines so many of my favourite textures and flavours. (And I am loving the new favourite posts to the side — great fonts).

    Thanks as well for the eloquent words about Boston. Definitely a topic for reflection and prayer – who knows how we would respond?
