Super Easy Pork Shoulder Roast (AIP, Paleo)

I have absolutely zero luck with pork in the crock pot, there I said it. Phew. I try recipes over and over again, either I over cook or under cook or I grab the wrong cut and it just never seems to work out. This may sound strange, but it's the truth. I am also super bad at following directions, so this may be part of it. This was the reason why I need something that required the least amount of instruction to equal the best results.

The recipe for this came as a bit of a fluke. I picked up a pork shoulder roast for a good deal at the store and had no clue what I was going to do with it, but had to buy it. When I went to prepare it, I literally grabbed a few of my favorite herbs, tossed them on top of the roast, turned the crock pot on low, and walked away. What came out was perfection! I love it when that works out. And best of all, this is completely approved by my non-paleo hubby, so you know it's a hit!

Super Easy Pork Shoulder Roast


  • 3-5 lb pork shoulder roast
  • 2 tablespoons of minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons each of the following: oregano, thyme, marjoram, basil, and rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt


  1. Place pork shoulder roast in slow cooker. If it is wrapped in kitchen netting, you can leave it on.
  2. Rub garlic over the top of roast. Mix herbs together and sprinkle over the top of the roast.
  3. Set slow cooker on low and cook for 9-10 hrs or until roast reaches 165 degrees F.
  4. Remove roast and set on cutting board. Tent it with aluminum foil and let rest for 20 mins. This would be a good time to make your sides, like the Caramelized Fennel and Sweet Potato Sauté
  5. Slice, serve, drool, and enjoy!
