Chipotle Healthy Keto Pulled Pork. The pulled pork from the slow cooker is incredibly tender and quite simple to shred. You could shred up this bad boy using forks to be all delicate and appropriate, or you could be uncivilized like me and just get all up in there with your hands.
You must desire to.
In an effort to make this dish healthier, I used Greek yogurt, Ranch dressing powdered mix, and healthy cobb salad on top of the slow cooker pulled pork.
Delish! About this dish, you should be aware of two things:
1. It really makes your mouth smile.
2. It’s also so ridiculously simple that you could complete it while closing your eyes, just like the “pho” sandwiches made with slow-cooked pulled pork. But if you do that, please remember to take a quick peek once you reach the portion with the food processor.
In a food processor duel, I once misplaced the tip of a finger. I’m penning this with all ten advice pieces intact. It sprung back. You felt anxious. I know.
Is Pulled Pork Keto?
On your back deck on a hot summer night, the PERF meal to serve your family and friends at a cookout is simple: pulled pork! It’s a great meal to feed a crowd and keep them happy. If you’re following a keto diet, you’re in luck! Not only do I have SO many keto options for main dishes on my blogs like easy low-carb keto stir fry and desserts like keto pecan pie, but NOW you can add this keto pulled pork recipe to your list of must-tries! If you serve it on lettuce instead of a bun, it is both keto AND paleo-friendly. Feel free to omit the coconut sugar too.
When using the pork and rub:
- chopped 1 medium yellow onion
- 1 cup of water, 2 tablespoons of minced fresh garlic
- 2 Tbsp Salt 1 Tbsp Coconut sugar
- Chili powder, 1 teaspoon
- 0.5 teaspoon cumin powder
- a can of chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, 1/2 tbsp
- Smoked paprika, 1/4 teaspoon
- 3 1/2–4 lbs of extra fat from pork shoulder were removed.
- lettuce wraps OR whole-wheat or gluten-free hamburger buns, for serving
- For garnish, add paleo ranch (I used Sir Kensington’s)
- optional cole slaw mix for garnish lime juice for garnish
- Tabasco sauce, for adornment
- Put the minced garlic and thinly sliced onion in the bottom of the crock cooker. Add one cup of water.
- Mix all spices for spice rub in a bowl(small) and left to stand.
- Your pork shoulder should be free of any large, obvious lumps of fat before being uniformly covered with the spice rub.
- When the pork is moist and soft, cook it for 6–8 hours on high or 8–10 hours on low. On top of the water, garlic, and onions, put pork.
- After the pork is done, remove the majority of the liquid from the crock pot and add the solids—which are the onions and garlic—again.
- Shred the pork with two forks after transferring it to a cutting board.
- Then to the slow cooker, reintroduce the shredded pork and stir in onions & garlic. Keep warm under a cover.
- Serve the pulled pork on lettuce or a sandwich with ranch coleslaw mix, lime juice, and green tabasco sauce on the side.
