  4. Place the pork in the slow cooker (I cut mine in half) and rub the paste over the meat.
  5. Cover and let cook on low for 8-10 hours to desired tenderness, or until it is easily shredded with a fork.
  6. Remove the meat and place in a large bowl or container. Remove the onions with a slotted spoon and place in with the meat. Shred the meat into bite-sized pieces.
  7. Bake your sweet potatoes in an oven heated at 400 degrees for 45 minutes, or until they are soft.
