This is the last meal prep I'll have to do without an oven! Woo! Anyways, I decided to make a crockpot pork recipe from PaleOMG that I've made before. It's actually supposed to be paired with caramelized mashed plantains, which is pretty delicious, check out that post here. This pork recipe is pretty plain and definitely needs to be paired with something delicious and flavorful. Since I was lazy and didn't want to prepare the plantains, I made my go-to sweet potato applesauce mash. Just like last weeks mash I boiled about 5lbs of sweet potato for 30-35 minutes, drained it, and used a potato masher to mash it all. I added a cup of homemade applesauce, some cinnamon, and salt, and mashed everything together some more for the final product. I did note that I should have used another cup of applesauce since I had so many sweet potatoes, so if you are making this with a normal amount of sweet potatoes a cup is usually all you need. This meal was definitely a lazy one for me, but super easy to throw together and one I know I'd enjoy eating all week. If you're feeling up for it, I recommend trying the carmelized mashed plaintains with this pork. You will not be disappointed!
