Its a beautiful day here in New England. Despite the snow fall we had last week, today is supposed to reach 70 degrees! If you haven't wrestled the leaves in your yards yet, heres a chance! I am thinking of throwing some of the the christmas lights on outside the house so when it gets closer to the holiday, ill just need to flip them on...
Well heres an extremely tasty and easy pulled pork recipe. It was derived from Fast Paleo, but I tweaked it according to what I had around and of course my taste buds :) Since discovering this recipe, I think I have made it almost once a week. The flavor is like no other, and the leftovers are great for snacks, breakfast, any meal. I usually prep the night before, and turn the crockpot on low before leaving the house for work. When I get home a delicious meal is hot and ready. (not to mention the delicious aroma in the house!) This one is prefect for a day like today, pop it in the crock pot and go do some last minute yard work!
Paleo Pulled Pork (Click here for a printable version)
- 1 5-7lb pork butt (I have also used beef, either will work!)
- 1 Can or 1 1/4 Cup of Chicken Broth
- 1 Tablespoon Apple cider vinegar
- 2-3 large apples
- 2 Onions
- Few cloves of garlic
- A few Dashes of Cinnamon
- Optional: A few Dashes of Red pepper flakes
- Garlic Powder
- Chili Powder
- Cut up your apples and onions into large chunks and lay them at the bottom of your crock put.
- Add in the Chicken stock, apple cider vinegar, garlic, and cinnamon to the bottom of the pot as well. If you like it a little spicy, add some red pepper flakes too!
- For the roast – I just eye ball all of the spices. Be careful with the cumin, its a very strong taste, as well as the chili powder if you are not a huge fan of spiciness. The more you add, the spicier it will be. What I do it add on the specs and pat them on the roast with my hands. This gets the flavor on there fabulously!
- Place the Roast on the apples and onions and walla! Set your crock pot on high or low depending on how long your leaving it to cook and in 4-8 hours you will have a delicious meal!
- Sometimes the pork will fall apart, but you may need to pull it apart gently with a fork. (and yes, your apples and onions will basically be disintegrated, but you will taste the flavor!) If your storing leftover, try and strain as much of the juice as possible because there is A LOT of grease.
