Scale

Ingredients

For the Pulled Pork:

  • 2 lb pork loin roast
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon cayenne powder (optional)
  • 1/4 cup water

For the Pineapple Radish Salsa:

  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pineapple
  • 1/2 cup matchsticked radishes
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice

For the Tacos:

  • 1 batch tortillas (use the paleo recipes in my e-book Tacos Every Damn Day or your favorite storebought version)
  • cilantro, for garnish

Instructions

  1. First, prep the pork. Combine the smoked paprika, ground black pepper, sea salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and cayenne in a small bowl. Rub the pork roast with the spice mixture, covering every nook and cranny of the roast. Add the roast to a slow cooker and pour the water into the bottom. Cook on HIGH for 3 hours or on LOW for 7 hours. At this point, the pork should shred easily with two forks. Reduce the slow cooker to WARM while you prepare the tortillas (if necessary) and salsa.
  2. To make the salsa, add the pineapple, radish sticks, red onion, cilantro, and lime juice in a large bowl. Stir to combine.
  3. Assemble the tacos by adding a couple tablespoons of pulled pork across a tortilla. Top with the pineapple radish salsa and garnish with additional cilantro if desired. Eat immediately.

Notes

Cook times will vary by the size of your pork roast; adjust as necessary. If using a pork shoulder roast, you can omit the water – I only find it necessary for lean cuts, like pork loin!
