Slow Cooker Pork Roast Recipe Paleo

Slow Cooker Pork Roast Recipe Paleo

This slow cooker pork roast recipe was by far our favorite during our paleo month.  We cooked it at least once a week and continue to cook it even now when we’re off paleo. :) If you didn’t already know… I’m terrible in the kitchen. So every month now, I try to blog a new recipe, which then forces me to learn a new recipe.

Paleo Slow Cooker Pork Roast Recipe (original recipe here):

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoons ghee (or butter for non-paleo)
  • 8 leeks, whites only, thinly sliced (or 2 medium onions, chopped medium)
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon tomato paste
  • 3 sprigs of fresh thyme (1/2 teaspoon dried thyme)
  • 1/4 cup dry vermouth (or substitute with dry white wine / white wine vinegar)
  • 1/4 cup organic chicken stock
  • 1 (28-ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1.5 pounds of carrots, peeled, and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 celery stalks, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 – 2.5 lb boneless pork picnic shoulder roasts
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Banyuls vinegar (or substitute with sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar)
  • Red Boat fish sauce

Directions (Serves 8):

  1. Melt the ghee or butter in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the leeks, garlic, tomato paste, and thyme to the skillet and cook until leeks are softened and lightly browned  (8-10 minutes).
  3. Add chicken broth and vermouth (or substitute with dry white wine / white wine vinegar) to deglaze the pan.
  4. Add the leek mixture, tomatoes, carrots, celery, and a splash of fish sauce into the slow cooker.
  5. Season the roast liberally with salt, pepper, and a sprinkle of thyme. Season overnight if you have time.
  6. Nestle the pork roast into the slow cooker.
  7. Cover and set it to cook on low for 9-11 hours.
  8. Remove the thyme twigs and use a large spoon to degrease the braising liquid.
  9. Added the vinegar, fish sauce, and salt and pepper to taste.
