Ingredients


6 medium slice Bacon (pasture-raised; for the pork)
1 3/4 kg Pork shoulder, whole (pasture-raised; for the pork)
1 pinch Sea salt, fine (to taste; for the pork)
2 tbsp Oregano, dried (for the pork)
1 tbsp Turmeric, ground (for the pork)
1/2 cup Apple cider vinegar (optional; for the pork)
1/2 cup Xylitol (optional; for the pork)
454 gm Brussels sprouts (halved)
2 tbsp Butter, grass fed, unsalted
2 tsp Sea salt, fine
2 tsp Turmeric, ground

Instructions


  1. Place bacon strips at the base of a slow cooker.
  2. Rub pork with salt, oregano, and turmeric; place on top of bacon. Cook on low for 14 to 16 hours. Shred meat with a fork.
  3. If you want to add a tangy sweet-and-sour barbecue flavor, combine drippings from slow cooker with xylitol and apple cider vinegar in a pan over low heat, simmer for five minutes, and use as a sauce.
  4. For the Brussels sprouts, preheat oven to 300ºF. Place sprouts in a baking pan, and coat with butter, salt, and turmeric. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes.
