Recipe for Paleo BBQ Sauce:
3cupsof unsalted beef broth
4 -5clovesgarlicminced finely
2can tomato paste6 fl oz each
2tbspapple cider vinegar
2– 3 tsp chili powderdepending on your tastes
To make the Tangy BBQ Sauce:
In a medium saucepan, bring unsalted beef broth and garlic to a simmer on medium heat for 5 minutes.
Then, add the tomato paste, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, paprika, onion powder, chili powder, salt, and cayenne pepper. Whisk to combine.
Simmer on low heat for 25 minutes, remove from heat and let cool for about 20 minutes. The sauce will thicken during cooking time.
Whatever sauce is not used in the Pulled Pork can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month in a sealed container.
To make the Pulled Pork:
Spray crock pot with nonstick spray (this will aid in clean-up).
Season pork loin with salt and pepper.
Place onion slices on bottom of crock pot. Top with pork lion. Then sprinkle the 2 cloves of garlic over the pork.
Pour 1 ½ cups of prepared Tangy BBQ Sauce over pork.
Cover and cook on low for 8 -9 hours, checking at about the 6 hour to see if it’s ready to be shredded. You’ll know when it is – it will just fall apart. When it is fork tender and falling apart, shred pork and return to crock pot. Let cook another hour. Depending on your crock pot, the cooking time can vary.
If eating Paleo, serve as is or spoon into a baked sweet potato or over riced cauliflower. If not eating Paleo, spoon into rolls. Also, great over a white baked potato.
