In my quest to create new and interesting healthy-ish meals, I tried my hand at making pulled pork in the crockpot and placing it atop a sweet potato instead of bread. The savory and sweet flavors complimented each other so well! Next time, I’ll try to make a homemadeΒ BBQ sauce so the entire recipe is trulyΒ clean, but the recipe turned out great!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 lb. boneless pork chopsblog_pork chops ingredients
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • Small red onion (chopped)
  • 2 tsps. minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup BBQ sauce (more or less depending on your taste!)
  • Green onions (for garnish)

1) In a small bowl, mix the spices together and then season the pork chops with the mixture.

2) Add the pork chops, chopped red onions, minced garlic and 1/2 cup water to the crockpot. Cook on low for 8 hours.

4) Cook your sweet potatoes (I use the microwavable kind!). Add the pulled pork to the top of the potatoes and top with chopped green onions.
