  • Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
  • Yield: 2 people 1x



2 medium sweet potatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt

1/4 recipe Slow Cooked Smoky Pulled Pork

Spring onion lime crème fraîche
3 tbsp crème fraîche
1 tsp lime juice
2 tbsp spring onion, finely chopped
1/2 tsp salt

To serve
3 tbsp pickled onions
1 tsp chilli flakes


  1. Pierce your sweet potatoes with a fork several times. Rub them with the olive oil and salt and place on a baking tray. If you want a little less cleanup, use some baking parchment on the tray. Bake in a preheated oven for 45 to 60 mins at 200 degrees C (390 degrees F).
  2. Heat up the pulled pork in a frying pan.
  3. Combine the crème fraîche, lime juice, spring onion and salt in a bowl.
  4. To serve, cut the sweet potato lengthways, divide the pulled pork between the two sweet potatoes, filling them in the centre.
  5. Top with the crème fraîche and top with pickled onions (if you have them), black pepper and chilli flakes.


  • Piercing the sweet potato with a fork stops them exploding or going soggy.
  • If you don’t eat pork this could be made with chicken, beef or lamb.
