BBQ Pulled Pork

Prep:     25 mins
Cook:    7-8 hrs
Serves: 6


2 T avocado oil
3½ lbs boneless pork shoulder cut into 4 pieces
1 small onion, finely chopped
8 oz canned tomato sauce (1 cup)
3 cloves garlic, crushed and minced
2 t smoked paprika
3 T coconut aminos
3 T mustard
1 t sea salt
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
⅛ t monk fruit powder, to taste

Optional: Garnish with pickled onions and carrots and serve on keto rolls or with mashed cauliflower.

Heat the avocado oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.

Add the pieces of pork shoulder, and brown on all sides.

Transfer the browned meat to a 6-quart slow cooker.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan, and bring to a boil.

Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, then pour the sauce over the pork in the slow cooker. Cook on LOW for 7–8 hours.

When the pork is cooked, remove it from the slow cooker, and shred it using 2 forks.

Return the pork to the slow cooker, and stir to mix it with the sauce.

Serve warm on keto rolls or with mashed cauliflower, and garnish with pickled onions and carrots. Enjoy!
