Slow-Cooker Roasted Pork | THM: S

Save for later!

My dear husband voiced the ultimate compliment after enjoying his first bite of this succulent, slow-cooker roasted pork. He said it tasted like his Dad’s.

That’s equivalent to a husband saying an apple pie you make tastes like his Mom’s.  His Dad is infamous around these parts for knowing how to cook a whole hog on a spit until perfection.

This sugar-free, slow-cooker roasted pork tastes similar to that, but on a much smaller scale. A THM S, you can enjoy slices of this roast with loaded mashed cauliflower and broccoli for an elegant meal, or try it in a low-carb wrap with lettuce, cheese, sour cream, mustard, and any other low-carb fixin’s you enjoy.

All you need are a few spices (paprika, cumin, chili powder, sea salt, and pepper), a bit of sweetener (I used xylitol, but you can use half the amount in Gentle Sweet if you prefer), some chicken broth, apple cider vinegar and sugar-free ketchup (there’s also a recipe for sugar-free ketchup in the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook, if you don’t have a bottle on hand).

Yield: 8-10 servings

  1. Hey Jacinda 🙂 My hubby can always taste when I’ve used a.c. vinegar (he’s not a fan of it), so I’m wondering if this would work ok with regular white vinegar instead. Thoughts?

  2. We had this recipe last week and WOW it was delicious!!! I actually doubled it as we had a large roast and I added some glucci to the sauce to thicken it up some as my grandmother likes a BBQ sauce for pork and I was able to make this sauce into a BBQ sauce for her with only adding glucci to thicken it up, it was divine and I didn’t have to make a separate BBQ sauce and now we have some for future meals. Thank you so much for this recipe it is definitely going to go into my normal rotation
