This smokey, spicy pork is flavor packed. It comes together with a simple 6 ingredients and is Paleo and Whole30 compliant.
We are on week 3 of our Whole30, which actually started over again because my husband got sick and took some cold medicine. I guess that means we're on week 1. I'm trying to be creative with our meals because eating the same thing over and over can get boring!
This recipe was created from a few simple ingredients I had around the house. I used a chipotle salsa from Trader Joe's. It has no sugar, thickeners, or weird ingredients in it. If you don't have a TJ's near you, use your favorite salsa and add a 1 or 2 canned chipotles.
I made this is a dutch oven in the, but it would work in a slow cooker as well. Just dump all ingredients in it and set on low for 6-8 hours.
Cut the pork into large chunk, cover in salsa, throw some garlic on top, and squeeze orange juice over it all. Easy peazy!
Add onions, bone broth, and salt and pepper. I only had frozen- it works just as good. Just use stock if you don't have bone broth. Bring to a boil, turn off heat, cover and place in the oven for 3 ½-4 hours. Remove pork from the sauce and place the pot back on a burner. Reduce sauce by half or until desired thickness.
This pork has just the right amount of heat. It adds great flavor without being overpowering. We eat it over a baked sweet potato. It would be great over cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles though.
