  • Make the pulled pork according to this Crock Pot Pulled Pork recipe.
  • In a large skillet combine pulled pork with cooking liquid, peppers, and sweet potato. Cover and bring to a simmer.

  • Refrigerate for up to 4 days, and freeze for up to 3 months.
  • Fridge- dump everything into the skillet and cook as directed.
  • Freezer- thaw completely before dumping into the skillet and cooking as directed.



After cooking, leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days. Heat until steaming hot and serve.
