AIP Pork Carnitas with Cranberry Relish {AIP/Paleo}

Do you remember I mentioned in the Ropa Vieja recipe that I am making alot of  shredded meat dishes that will go with Fork & Bean’s Grain Free Tortilla Recipe  due to my daughter loosing endless baby teeth which makes eating Steak and Pork Chops so very challenging and lets face it none of us want a child who takes 1hr to eat their dinner ;)!

In this AIP Pork Carnitas Recipe paired with a delicious Cranberry Relish (YUMMMM!)  I tend to favor using Pork Butt due to it being one of the cheaper cuts of Pasture Raised meat but if you are wanting to cook this for large numbers then a pork shoulder maybe better!

I often take this dish to Potlucks or Graduation Parties, as its a hit with all generations, and pairs well with Grain Free Tortilla’s, Zoodles (Spiralized Veggies) or Cauliflower Rice

How to Serve
  1. This meat is so versatile & pairs so well with so many foods, our favorite as a family (as pictured) is to have it with Grain Free Tortillas from Fork & Beans (see above for recipe link). Although I also have it cold over salad leaves, or with Seasonal Spiralized Root Veggies or Cauliflower Rice. Invite the family to build their own deliciousness!

Teriyaki Crock Pot Pork {AIP/Paleo}

I am a HUGE fan of the Crock Pot/Slow Cooker, I will often prepare my meal when I’m tidying up the kitchen from dinner, and place it in the fridge so that I can just whip it out and plug it in at breakfast time!

This recipe, combines the silky sweet tastes of Teriyaki with Pasture Raised Pork Loin, but Pork Shoulder or Pork Butt is equally good especially for shredding!

For our family of two, I will cut the loin in half and shred half for dinner, but keep the remaining half in its loin form.  That way we have sliced pork for lunches the next day.

If making and marinating overnight
  1. Throw everything into a 1 Gallon Ziplock bag, and seal and place in fridge
