This delicious low-carb pulled pork recipe takes only 10 minutes to put together. After that, you’re free to do something else while your slow cooker transforms it into a nearly effortless melt-in-your-mouth dish your family will love.

For even tastier results, allow pork to sit in its yummy juices once you’ve pulled it apart. This will allow it to absorb even more of that great flavor!

This keto recipe is gluten-free and does not contain any added sugar or any other pre-packaged or processed ingredients. 

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 4.5 - 6.5 hours
Serves: 4

Ingredients:

2 lbs. pork shoulder
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons dried rosemary
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon ground fennel seeds
2 teaspoons cocoa powder
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
1/3 cup organic sugar-free chicken broth
8 iceberg or butter lettuce leaves

Directions:

  1. Combine all spices and the cocoa in a small bowl and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Rub the spice mix all over the pork shoulder and transfer to a 5 or 6-quart slow cooker crock. Add the chicken broth to the crock and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6.
  2. Once the cooking time is complete, use two forks to pull the pork apart while it is still in the slow cooker crock. Allow the pulled pork to remain in the juices with the slow cooker set to “warm” for 20-30 minutes to absorb more flavor.
  3. To serve, fill each lettuce leaf with some crunchy broccoli slaw or your favorite low-carb slaw recipe and top with some pulled pork. Enjoy!
