A nutritious and simple dish, pastured pork shoulder is slow roasted in the crock pot (slow cooker) with simple spices. Shred the finished pork and serve with our Homemade Orange-Bourbon-Molasses BBQ Sauce– even better on Grain Free Honey Butter Muffins.
Slow Roasted Pastured Pork Shoulder
by Amy Love, Real Food Whole Health
1 pastured pork shoulder, about 4-6 lbs.
Unrefined sea salt
Freshly ground black or mixed peppercorns
Organic garlic powder
½ cup bone broth or water, warmed on stove top
Season pork with salt, pepper and garlic powder on all sides. Place in slow cooker. Add warm broth (or water) and cook on high for 1 hr. Turn heat to low and cook approx 6-8 hours (depending upon size of shoulder and your slow cooker) until meat falls apart easily. Remove from juices and shred. Reserve juices for another use (or boil down for a reduction sauce. Removing some of the fat from the juices might be helpful in this case)
Mix with sauce of your choice- like our homemade orange-bourbon-molasses BBQ sauce and serve alongside homemade coleslaw (made with homemade mayo) or fresh veggies of your choice. Also excellent on Grain-Free Honey Butter Muffins.
