Paleo Pulled Pork
2.50 lb pork loin center cut roast – boneless
1 large sweet yellow onion – sliced
3.5 cups beef broth
2 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp salt
½ tsp habanero sea salt
This recipe really can not get any easier. Take your piece of pork and put it in the crock pot, cover with the onions and all the spices, add in the broth, and cook on low for 8-12 hours. Mine cooked for a little over 7 and it was still great. I just made the mistake of putting it in at 4pm and I was tired so shortly after 11pm it came out. After the time is up take two forks to the pot and shred up the pork. I typically try to be careful not to scratch the crock pot, if you love yours do the same!With a large slotted spoon transfer all of the pork and onions to a large tupper ware. Put the remaining liquid into a separate container.This stuff tastes like gold. DO NOT THROW IT OUT. So far I have been eating the pulled pork as tacos with homemade sweet and tangy bbq or served over some paleo bread and covered with this golden delicious juice. **Hint – once the juice makes its way to the fridge and cools off all of the fat will harden and float to the top, it will also be bright orange, use a spoon or a itty bitty strainer to scoop off the excess fat.
Random Fun Facts
Back in October I treated myself to some new training gear, including running shoes. I LOVE these shoes – Nike Relentless II, so I went and bought them in purple and they arrived the next day with free shipping (Zappos – I love you). I have only put about 300 miles on the pink ones but I can feel them wearing out so I wanted to add another shoe into the rotation, they are also only $65, which is a treat in the world of running kicks.I decided not to go to yoga last night and I think it was a good decision, instead I watched Hart of Dixie (another guilty pleasure) and let the bod relax. A good night on the couch mixed in with doing some laundry is just what the Dr ordered! I have no clue what I am going to do at the gym today, my abs are BURNING from the gym yesterday. I didn’t bother sharing what I did because I didn’t think it was that great but I am realizing I was totally wrong… So a down and dirty sub 10 minute ab work out:
20 sit ups on ball 20 sit ups with right twist on ball 20 sit ups with left twist on ball 20 push ups x2
