Notes

Meal prep
Prep components ahead
Pre cook the pulled pork, rice, roasted sweet potatoes and shredded cheese. This cuts down assembly time to 10 minutes.
  • Store in the fridge for up to 4 days
  • You may want to reheat the pulled pork for 5 minutes in a frying pan to help loosen it up and get it nice and juicy again
Prep as meal prep bowls
Burrito bowls can work assembled ahead for easy lunches. Add all ingredients to a 2-3 cup meal prep container and store in the fridge for up to 4 days. Add ingredients like salsa, sour cream and avocado fresh just before serving.
