How to Make Pulled Pork Sliders with Sweet Potato Buns

The namesake ingredient for these pulled pork sliders is made in a slow cooker, which means deliciously tender and juicy meat for you with very little effort. The pork will do its thing in our favorite magical contraption for 6-8 hours, making this the perfect weekday meal prep recipe. Simply add the pork to your crockpot in the morning before work, and come home to beautifully cooked meat that’s ready to lead you into step two. Sweet potato buns might sound fancy, but they’re super easy to make- another element of this meal prep recipe that requires minimum prep and effort from you. Simply slice and bake- that’s it! The natural flavor of the sweet potatoes really brings out the subtle sweetness of the pork, and the combination is pretty darn tasty.

Sweet Potato Nutrition

Did you know that sweet potatoes are actually really healthy? It can be easy to forget when they carry a name like “potato,” but these orange root vegetables are rich in Vitamins A and C, and their complex carb structure makes them a great choice for breakfast or a mid-day energy boost. We’re huge fans around here, and the use of sweet potatoes as “buns” makes them even more accessible, especially when adapting paleo or Whole30 meal prep recipes.

How to Store and Serve Pulled Pork with Sweet Potato Sliders

This will keep in meal prep containers for 4 to 5 days as long as they're airtight. You can reheat everything easily in a casserole dish or wrap the sliders in foil to prevent the meat from drying out. Then, reheat in a moderate oven (350 F) for 15 to 20 minutes until completely hot.

Bonus, though! You can totally freeze pulled pork and sweet potato sliders as long as they're wrapped in an airtight way. Defrost in the fridge overnight or in a low oven wrapped in foil.

It's a pretty filling Whole30 meal prep on its own, but feel free to serve with some roasted broccoli or a green salad with lots of veggies. A Dijon-based dressing would go really well with this.
