BBQ pork is one of the few recipes that does very well in the crock pot. Pair with *polenta (or riced cauliflower for a paleo alternative) and some sautéed spinach or steamed broccoli.
- 2 pork loins
- 1 onion, sliced in rings
- 2 c ketchup (or contents of a 24 oz bottle) – HFCS/sugar free
- 1/2 warm water
- 1/4 c apple cider vinegar
- 2 Tbsp coconut sugar or brown sugar (optional and omit if paleo)
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce (optional)
- 1 tsp Tabasco sauce (optional)
- salt as needed
Directions: place meat into the stoneware with onion rings. Stir ketchup, warm water, vinegar, sugar, and sauces. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours, or until meat shreds easily with fork.
*Nothing says comfort food like polenta! Especially with parmesan cheese. So not paleo, but so yummy. Polenta is super easy to make. 1 cup polenta to 3-4 cups water, a dash of salt, bring to boil, constantly stirring, simmer for 20-30 minutes or so. At end whisk in some olive oil or butter and parmesan cheese. Serve hot.

Super mom tip: You guessed it – BBQ pork freezes well. Polenta does NOT though! 🙂
