I absolutely adore my CrockPot/slow cooker. It’s the ultimate in convenience cooking…gather simple ingredients, throw in the pot, set it and walk away. There is a bit of planning involved (as in it takes time to complete the meal), but I usually fill it up before I go to sleep. When I wake up, the house smells amazing and dinner for the night is already made. Invest a few extra bucks in a slow cooker that has a digital timer and a “keep warm” function.

This recipe is awesome for having a large amount of protein on hand for various uses throughout the week, and since it’s “just meat”, you can throw the pork into lots of yummy applications…street tacos, served with eggs, paired with a simple veggie side dish, poured over salad and topped with salsa….

Though I prefer to use boneless pork shoulder from US Wellness Meats, I didn’t have one on hand so I bought two lean pork loin roasts from the butcher at my local market and was sure to strip the fat off after cooking.

Ingredients:

Directions:
1. Rinse and dry pork. Season with ~1 tsp sea salt.
2. Mince garlic.
3. Grease inside of crock with coconut oil (baked-on meat is never fun to scrape off).
4. Sprinkle half the chopped garlic in the bottom of the crock. Add the meat, fat side up. Sprinkle the rest of the garlic on top.
5. Set the crock pot on low for 16-18 hours. Don’t open the lid. Patience is a virtue.
6. When done cooking, remove pork. Peel the fat away and shred the meat. Discard the cooking juice…it will be incredibly salty. It’s that simple :)

after 18 hours…mmm

ready to remove the fat and shred the meat

      Hi Evie…great question! I usually fill my plate half full with fresh or cooked veggies and about 1/4 full with fats like avocado or olives.

    Well darn I’m looking for a recipe that I need RIGHT NOW as my roast is defrosted and ready to go and it needs to cook in 5 hours. Gonna throw it in and hope for the best. Next time though, I’ll totally start way earlier!
