This easy crock pot pulled pork is so simple. It was one of those last-minute, throw-together recipes. I had a pork shoulder in the fridge, and thought it would be good with my paleo peach barbecue sauce.
I have to confess I was in a hurry so I just threw all the sauce ingredients into the blender, then poured it into the slow cooker. I figured since it was going to cook all day, I could save a few minutes by not cooking the sauce ahead of time. Skipping this step makes the prep quick and easy — just five minutes and everything is in the crock pot.
You can use this crock pot pulled pork for make-ahead paleo meals during the week. We had it over mashed cauliflower one night, and as lettuce wraps the next day.
