Beyond Easy Pulled Pork

I have to give a shout-out to my friends at Crossfit 573 in Jackson, Missouri who are finishing up their gym’s first 30-day Paleo challenge!  I hope you all are feeling fit and energized and are “hungry” for more Paleo recipes!

After recently receiving my copy of Sarah Frogoso’s new, Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook, I finally got a chance to try a recipe from it.  Sarah did not disappoint (she never does)!  Her recipe for BEYOND EASY PULLED PORK is fabulous..and even better served as left-overs!

I don’t have a picture because we were so busy devouring the dish.  Since then I have eaten the pork on a taco for lunch (or breakfast!) and have still forgotten to get a picture for you.  So sorry.  You’ll have to believe me on this one, it’s really tasty.  Instead, I’ll show you the cover of her new book.  I’m looking forward to trying many new dishes soon.


Start to finish: 20 minutes prep, 5-6 hours cook time

Dry Rub

3 Tablespoons chili powder

1 teaspoon ground coriander

2 teaspoons ground cumin

2 teaspoons onion powder

1 Tablespoon dried parsley

1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder

2 teaspoons sea salt


4-5 pound pork butt roast

2 yellow onions, sliced

Mix the dry rub ingredients in a small bowl.  Rub the entire roast with the dry rub (use it all).  Place a layer of sliced onions in the bottom of a slow cooker.  Place the roast on top of the onions and cover with the remaining onions.  No liquid necessary).  Cook the roast on high for 5-6 hours, then turn it down for another hour or two until the roast is falling apart tender.

We served ours with SOUR SLAW and it was delicious.  For leftovers we made tacos with white corn tortillas, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime juice with hot sauce.
