Recipe: Pulled Pork Bowl

In an effort to cut back on my weekly visits to Chipotle, I have taken menu planning a little more seriously lately. The crock pot has been an integral part of the plan. Pulled pork is one of the meals I can count on everyone eating, though not always the same version. Hannah prefers a sandwich, while Jon likes to eat the pulled pork in soft taco form.

When I got home late from work on Wednesday evening, I didn’t have time to cook brown rice for a bowl with pulled pork and veggies. I silently cursed myself for not thinking about it earlier in the day, but then moved on to what I could use in place of the rice. I found a lone sweet potato in my pantry, so I chopped it up and sautéed it in a bit of olive oil.

Once the diced sweet potato was cooked to my liking, I removed it and added some raw spinach with another dash of olive oil and sautéed until wilted. I added the sweet potato and pulled pork to the pan, seasoned lightly with sea salt and pepper and cooked until warmed through.

The only thing missing was goat cheese!
