500g boneless pork loin
4 large sweet potatoes, washed with skin on
1 spanish onion, thinly sliced
2 shallots, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
½ cup beef stock
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp paprika
½ tsp ground cumin
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup BBQ sauce (or make your own if you are worried about the sugar content)
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1: Coat the pork in the chilli powder, cumin, paprika, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
2: Place the onion, garlic, pork, and beef broth in a slow cooker.
3: Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
4: Preheat your oven to 200 F.
5: Put the sweet potatoes in the oven and bake for 45 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
6: Remove the meat from the slow cooker and place in a large bowl. Use a slotted spoon to remove the onion chunks and place in the same bowl as the pork. Using two forks, pull the meat apart.
7: Add the BBQ sauce and the apple cider vinegar to the slow-cooker, and cook the sauce for another 30 minutes on low. Once the sauce is done, mix it with the pork.
8: Slit each sweet potato down the middle.
9: Fill each sweet potato with the pulled pork. Sprinkle with shallots, and drizzle with extra BBQ sauce to serve.
