Following our trials and tribulations as we attempt to remove all grains, many starchy vegetables and most sugars from our diet while maintaining our love of good food! We strive to make all of our recipes GAPS and/or SCD compliant. Note: We didn't know about "Grain-Free Gourmet" when we chose our name. We are not affiliated with those good folks.

1 teaspoon salt
3 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon crumbled dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon olive oil, softened butter or lard
1 (4-5 pound) pork roast
2 bay leaves
2 cups chicken broth
Mix first seven ingredients together to form a paste. Add more olive oil, if necessary. Rub mixture all over the roast. Place bay leaves in the bottom of slow cooker. Place roast on top. Carefully add chicken broth around meat (don't pour over the meat or spices will rinse off). Cover and cook on low heat for six to ten hours, until meat shreds easily with a fork. Remove from pot and allow to cool a bit. Shred the meat with two forks. Alternatively you can refrigerate immediately and shred the next day with your hands (This is what I usually do. Sometimes I cook it overnight, then refrigerate all day, then shred and eat for dinner.) The shreds are also good fried in coconut oil.
You can also make this in a pot on the stove top or in the oven. Just keep the temperature low and cook for a long time.
