This is probably not a recipe you haven’t seen before, but it’s become a staple around this household. Now that my husband and I have been counting macros for about a month, we eat a lot more lean meat. I got sick of chicken and ground turkey really quick this past month so I set out to find something different to change things up. I found some super lean pork roasts at Costco and let me tell you, they are great! I shared this recipe with Tracy and a few other friends and they loved it so I thought I’d share it with all of you. Keep scrolling for this super Easy Crock-Pot Pork Roast Recipe!
When you’re macro counting(more info on this to come!) every gram of fat counts! I miss my bacon so this is about as close to it I get these days. Costco carries these pork roasts individually wrapped for $1.79 per pound. I’m sure you can find them elsewhere, but I know lots of people shop at Costco. You also need some homemade taco seasoning(to keep it Whole30) or just some good old fashioned boughten taco seasoning works just fine. I went that route this time simple because I’m out of my homemade stuff and have these lying around.

So go ahead and coat your roast(s) with the taco seasoning right in your crock-pot. FYI-I do the same amount of seasoning and salsa with one or two roasts. Then you need to pick out your favorite salsa to cook it in. My favorite is Salsa Verde and Pace Picante. I’m kind of a salsa aholic…
This time I went with the Citrus Pineapple Pace.
Now it’s important you do this on low and cook for 6-8 hours. I’ve tried doing it on high and it doesn’t end up shredding nicely. Cook on low for 6-8 hours until you can poke it with a fork and it easily shreds. Remove from crockpot and throw it in your Kitchen Aide if you have one and shred it in about 3 seconds.
Now don’t get mad at me but I like to put this over rice. Since macro counting we eat rice pretty much everyday because it’s super easy to make in the rice cooker and keep in the fridge all week. However all you Whole30er’s can put it on cauliflower rice and top it with guacamole and more salsa!
I hope I gave a few people a new idea for an easy meal. I really do love this super lean easy dish and I hope you do as well!
