BBQ Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

This is a replicate of a sweet potato I love from our favorite BBQ place Sauced. You can have it with a regular potato also if you don’t like sweet potatoes or mix it up for the family depending on who likes what . This is also a good meal when everyone isn’t eating at the same time you can keep the potatoes warm in a separate crockpot or at 200 in the oven. You can also change up the toppings to your liking.

 

Prep Time total 30-40 mins                                                                          Cook Time 6-8 hours total

Serves 6 (can sever more if needed) I had left over pork that I froze to use another time.

  • 1 Lb. pork loin roast
  • 1 Med onion chopped
  • 1/2 Cup BBQ sauce

  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard

  • 6 Slices center cut bacon
  • 2 jalapeños thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch green onions sliced

BBQ Pork

Place pork loin in crockpot top with onions, bbq sauce and hot sauce (if desired) cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Once done shred pork with forks and mix with BBQ sauce.

Sweet Potatoes
Clean potatoes wrap in foil and cook in oven at 400 for 45-60 mins or until soft.
Cheese Sauce
Melt butter in sauce pan, whisk in flour and cook 3-5 mins until light brown rue forms. Slowing stir milk into flour mixture in increments, once milk is incorporated add garlic powder, mustard, salt & pepper and  beer simmer for 3-5 mins. Add cheese in handful increments waiting until it melts before adding more. Simmer on low until thickened and smooth. If the sauce thickens up too much you can add more beer to thin it out.
