Welcome to my Whole 30 Crockpot Pulled Pork & Spuds recipe. A delicious tender pork shoulder made into succulent pulled pork. Cooked in a simple marinade with white potatoes and served with salad for the dream Whole 30 family meal.
I don’t know about you but when I first think of the Whole 30 the list goes on and on about what I can’t have:
But the truth is that with some imagination you could make all of these meals. You would simply make it without the junk, without the processed foods and without the sugar.
This is my Whole 30 pulled pork. Pulled pork that is marinated the night before to give it the best ever flavour. Then it is left in the fridge overnight to soak in its marinade and then slow cooked over the potatoes the next day on low.
It is the dream pulled pork, served with the spuds and then on a salad. You can then have it with a side of steamed vegetables and you have a truly delicious slow cooker meal.
Plus, if you are the only one in the family on the Whole 30 this could be a great Sunday lunch meal where you can all enjoy Whole 30 food heaven!#Whole30 #Crockpot #PulledPork & #Spuds #Recipe @recipe_thisClick To Tweet
In a mixing bowl add all of your seasonings including the dried garlic and mix with a teaspoon.
Cover all sides of your pork shoulder in ¾ of the rub and place it in a large mixing bowl. Place in the fridge for 2 hours.
After 2 hours cover the pork with water (so that the pork is just submerged) and place cling film over the top and then leave in the fridge overnight.
The following morning remove the cling film, remove the pork from the watery bowl and place it on a chopping board.
In the slow cooker dice the potatoes (with skins still on) and place them in the bottom of your slow cooker. Give a sprinkling of the rub (1/3 of what you have left) over the potatoes and mix well with your hands. Place the pork on top and then sprinkle the rest of the rub over it.
Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours.
Serve on a bed of lettuce.
Any medium sized pork shoulder will work well. For it to be more tender go for a slightly smaller joint.
I like to marinate the lettuce by mixing it with a tablespoon of white wine vinegar.
Whole 30 Day 29
I am back with my day 29 on the Whole 30. I have found that as the days progress you end up rather boring and eating the same old foods that you love. Just like before you might have always had a curry on a Friday night or a roast dinner on a Sunday.
Yet here on the Whole 30 you end up falling into typical habits too. For example having a whole chicken is our lunch most days and on Mondays we nearly always have a vegetable frittata.
But who cares? Have what you’re comfortable with and what you love to have, because we don’t need to be experimental everyday do we???
What I ATE On Day TWENTY NINE Of The Whole 30
Today is the end game. The day before the last day of our Whole 30 and we are getting into our favourite meals. Breakfast and lunch is the same as what we have had before and we could imagine having these for breakfast and lunch for a long time to come.
Breakfast = Fruit Salad
Lunch = Vegetable Frittata
Dinner = Pulled Pork Salad
For breakfast I have a fruit salad. Yes I know super boring! But I like fruit and then I can just grab a handful of fruit and get munching away.
Then for lunch we have one of Dominic’s delicious vegetable frittatas. He cooks it with both olive oil and coconut oil and it is truly amazing.
Then for dinner we have this pulled pork salad. Loads of lettuce, white wine vinegar, potatoes in their skins and amazing pulled pork. If you are at work all day and worry about cooking Whole 30 meals then I recommend you put this on before you go to work and then have it ready for you for when you get home.
