medium sweet potatoes (about 2 1/2 pounds), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices
1/2-pound pork boneless shoulder roast (tied or in netting)
cup packed brown sugar
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
clove garlic, finely chopped
Place sweet potato slices in 5 to 6-quart slow cooker. Place pork
on sweet potatoes. Mix remaining ingredients in small bowl; sprinkle
over pork and potatoes.
Cover and cook on low heat setting 8 to 10 hours.
Remove pork from cooker; place on cutting board. Remove strings
or netting from pork. Cut pork into slices, or pull pork into serving
pieces using 2 forks. Serve with sweet potatoes, spooning juices over
When a pork shoulder is boned, the butcher uses kitchen string or an elastic net to shape the meat into a tidy roast. Leave the string or netting on while the roast cooks, ensuring neat slices at serving time.
Add a fresh spinach salad and a basket of warm biscuits to round out the meal.
