Slow Cooker Pork and Sweet Potatoes

>> Friday, March 11, 2011


2 lb. pork roast
4 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder

Place sweet potatoes in bottom of crockpot, then place pork on top. Combine remaining ingredients and sprinkle on top. Cover, cook on low 8-10 hours. Remove pork and slice. Spoon juices over pork and potatoes.

This recipe is so easy and so delicious. The best part, it is great for small budgets because it uses so few ingredients. I love the kick cayenne pepper gives it, but you could use less if you want it milder. Also, I have never peeled the potatoes. I take as many shortcuts as I can when cooking and the skins are good for you, right?

This sounds super yummy. I only make Cafe Rio with pork roasts because I don't know what else to do with them. Thanks for the yummy idea!
