For the Pork

•2 1⁄2 lb pork butt roast

•2 tsp garlic powder

•2 tsp onion powder

•2 tsp chili powder

•2 tsp paprika

•2 tsp salt

•2 tsp pepper

•1⁄2 tsp cayenne pepper

•1 cup apple cider vinegar

•8 Tbsp BBQ sauce (look for low sugar option. Most vinegar based sauces are lower in sugar)

 

For the Green Beans

•1 lb of cut and washed fresh green beans

 

For the Sweet Potatoes
•3 medium sweet potatoes

•1 Tbsp olive oil

•Salt and pepper taste

 

For the Pork

•Mix together all of the spices and rub over the pork.

•Place in a crockpot on high with 1 cup of apple cider vinegar for 4 hours. •Once cooked, remove from crockpot and shred with two forks.

•Turn on your oven to broil.

•Line a baking sheet with tin foil. Spread the pork over the baking sheet and place in the oven for 3 minutes. Remove and flip. Cook an additional 3 minutes. Watch carefully so the pork does’t burn.

Placing the pork in the oven will add color and texture to the meat.

 

For the Green Beans
•If you buy the pre-cut green beans in the bag, follow the instructions on the bag.

•If you buy regular green beans, cut off the ends and boil them for 10 minutes or until they are soft.

 

For the Sweet Potatoes

•Preheat your oven to 400°F

•Wash and cut the sweet potatoes into a medium dice.

•Spread them onto a sheet pan and drizzle with 1 Tbsp of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

 

This recipe makes 5 servings. Divide the ingredients evenly between your 5 containers.
