This Paleo Slow-Cooker Pork Roast takes just minutes to get in the slow-cooker, but is so tasty, tender and moist that your family and guests will think you spent hours in the kitchen.
I love the idea of throwing things into a slow-cooker in the morning and coming home to a tasty meal later in the day. Sometimes, though, slow-cooker recipes require lots of preparation to get started. Meat needs to be browned, vegetables need to be cut and liquids need to measured. My mornings are crazy enough without adding all of that to it! This recipe, however, requires very little prep. It’s hard to believe something so fast and easy could turn out so delicious.
This recipe uses a simple rub for the roast and then it simply cooks in it’s own juices. I swear it only takes about five minutes to get it cooking. What’s not to love about that!

- 1 teaspoon sea salt
