This easy paleo crock pot pulled pork recipe takes just 5 minutes to prep. You can use the pulled pork for quick make-ahead meals during the week.
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. It's perfect with this easy coleslaw or any of these side dishes!

Love the sound of this. Easy and great flavors, the best combination.
Thanks, Nancy! 🙂
This sounds really hood. Looking forward to trying it. Just one question, what are aminos? I don't know the Brit equivalent.
Hi Evee, coconut aminos are a paleo-friendly substitute for soy sauce. The ingredients are organic coconut sap aged and blended with sun-dried mineral rich sea salt.

IS there a substitute that would work for the bacon grease?
Hi Allyson, I like to use bacon fat because it adds a smoky flavor. If you don't have any you can substitute your favorite cooking fat.

This looks delicious! I haven't had pulled pork in a long time. I love using my crock pot so I will have to give this recipe a try. Thanks for sharing!
Hope you enjoy it, Linda!
Mmm.. this pulled pork looks really tasty! Thanks so much for sharing your yummy recipe on the Monday Funday Party!
This looks really good. I think I need to try it. Hopefully it will work on low for 11 hours since that is how long I'm away for commute/work and I don't have a fancy crock-pot that only goes so many hours then switches to warm
Made the pulled pork today, exactly by your recipe, and it was fantastic. Always use a bottled bbq sauce but never again. Thanks so much for a great recipe.
Yay! I'm so glad you love it, Jane!
Instead of bacon fat, can I substitute it with my regular cooking oil and liquid smoke?
I haven't tried it, but I think it would work. If you try it let us know how it turns out!
Could I use chipotle powder instead of crushed chipotle peppers?
Hi Stacy, substituting chipotle powder should be fine but you may have to adjust the amount. Just start with less and taste the barbecue sauce (before you put it on the pork) then add more spice if needed.
