I am still obsessed with the the Garlic Cauliflower Mash I made a couple times last month. so this week I decided to add some sweet potatoes into the mix. The verdict: the mash turned out absolutely delicious! I am so glad I tried this out. I'm always searching for ways to mix up how I make sweet potatoes and this one is a winner. Since I picked out the mash first, I found this simple crockpot carnita recipe to pair it with. This recipe does have a hint of Mexican and spicy flavor to it, so not your typical pair for a sweet potato mash, but I thought the meal was great! I also think anything pairs well with sweet potatoes though... Anyways, I put the pork in the crockpot on high for 6 hours. Once done, I shredded the pork and threw it on a baking sheet, drizzled some of the extra sauce from the crockpot and lightly sprayed some olive oil on top, then baked for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. The recipe calls for putting the shredded pork in a skillet to crisp and brown up, but I thought baking it would do a better job.
