Whole30 Crockpot Pork Loin Tacos

Jump To Recipe

See? I told you we’d still have some Whole30 recipes make an appearance on the blog.  This is one that you will make time and time again because it’s packed with flavor and can be made in the crockpot.  Who else is a fan of virtually hands off cooking? ***raising my hand!!***  I like using pork loin in this dish, because it’s already pretty lean, but you could use a shoulder in it’s place, no problem.

I made this on my first round of Whole30 over the summer and I served it in romaine cups topped with easy pineapple salsa and guacamole.  While this is a great way to serve it, I figured out the hard way that it can be slightly messy.  I ended up making it into a salad by adding more romaine to a salad bowl, topping it with some pork, salsa and guac and if you need a little extra dressing, drizzle over about a tablespoon of olive oil and a squeeze of lime juice.  This also makes for a quick and easy lunch option to take to work with you.

It doesn’t stop there though.  I made about 2 lbs of pork, which is a ton of meat to consume when you’re only eating a couple ounces at a time, so I also like to make the pork stretch into other meals.  For another whole30 meal, serve the pork over the sweet potatoes in place of chicken in the recipe Chipotle Chicken Over Sweet Potatoes,  The options are kind of endless, so get creative if you have loads left over and be sure to tag me on social media so I can see how you used your leftovers or if you’ve made any Carolina Girl Cooks recipes!  I love seeing what everyone is trying.
