What makes my Paleo Tender Pork Roast awesome ?

  • Two versions. Whether you have a slow cooker or a Dutch oven at home, this recipe can be tailored to your personal needs.
  • Make ahead and save time. Very little hands-on time and full-body bold flavor. That’s what I call a win-win. 🙂
  • One pot meal: Roast the pork with root vegetables like carrots and celeries to make it a one pot meal !
  • Upgrade to Stuffed Crispy Potato Skins ! Now we are talking 🙂 Click the lovely picture below to get some crispy action going !

Slow cook v.s. Dutch Oven – Paleo Tender Pork Roast

Nate, my husband, loves the slow cooked version because he loves pulled pork. I, however, love the Dutch oven version because it’s super quick to roast them in the oven and the sauce caramelized perfectly like the picture below.

That said, the slow cooked version does make the pork taste more juicy. You can cube the pork like I did to make Stuffed Crispy Potato later on or do pulled pork. Just remember to reduce or thicken the juice/sauce remaining in the slow cooker.

Oven temperature & Bake time

Now if you opt for roasting these beautiful porky babies in the Dutch oven, pay a little attention to your oven temperature.

If your oven tends to get heated pretty quickly, set the temperature to 375F/ 190C. Roast the first side for 20 mins and flip side for 10mins. Check the internal temperature (and the thickest part) until it reaches 145F/ 63C.

My oven doesn’t get hot that easily so I set it for 400F/204C.

Wish you all a very happy and healthy holiday.
