Saucy Pork-Stuffed Potatoes

Baked potato pork IMAGE Author: Canadian Living Credits: Baked potato pork IMAGE

Dress up simple baked potatoes with tender shredded pork smothered in a sweet, chunky sauce. Microwaving the potatoes makes this recipe lightning-fast, but oven-roasted potatoes – if you have time to make them – are just as tasty with crispier skin.

Ingredients

  • 4 russet potatoes (about 1kg)
  • 2 cups Slow Cooker Shredded Pork
  • 1/3 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1/3 cup tomato-based chili sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 green onion thinly sliced

Method

Using fork, prick potatoes all over. Microwave on high, turning once, until fork-tender, about 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, in saucepan over medium heat, combine pork, corn, chili sauce and pepper. Cook, stirring, until heated through, about 5 minutes.

Cut lengthwise slit along top of potato; open. Fill with pork mixture; sprinkle with cheese and green onion.
