In case you've been living under a rock the past week, the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl. Apparently their parade was pretty outrageous. Now, I know what you're thinking, "Joe, Philly is known for cheese steaks." WRONG. If you're from Philly, you know the roast pork sandwich is your city's pride and joy. Thankfully, a roast pork sandwich is a much healthier choice to get your Philadelphia food fix than is a cheese steak. Even better - you can make slow cooker roast pork and pair it with some broccoli or broccolini plus potatoes and have a completely paleo-friendly meal with minimal effort. However, it has to be said, these are traditionally served as sandwiches so if that is your jam, go for it. Get a nice, crusty bread and stuff it full of broccoli rabe, roast pork, and cheese.
Our friends over at Bon Appetit magazine posted this recipe for slow cooker roast pork, and I adapted it slightly based on what was on hand, and how I wanted the flavor and macros to turn out. Pork tenderloin is much leaner than pork shoulder, and in a slow cooker stays just as juicy. I also skimmed back the olive oil, as I felt it wasn't necessary in the quantities they had.
