Slow Cooked Pulled Pork

This recipe is from Nom Nom Paleo. Very few ingredients, easy to prepare and delicious! We serve this tasty meat over sauteed cabbage noodles and then use the left overs for tacos or quesadillas! 

What you need:
 5 pound pork butt roast (If my store doesn't have that, I just ask the butcher what cut of meat would work  for pulled pork.)
 4-5 sliced bacon
 3 1/2 to 4 teaspoons Real Salt or Celtic Sea Salt (3/4 tsp. per pound of meat)
 Garlic powder

What you do:
 Place the bacon strips on the bottom of your slow cooker
 Salt the pork on all sides
 Sprinkle garlic powder on all sides and place on top of bacon
 Cook in slow cooker on low for up to 16 hours
 Remove meat from slow cooker, pull apart with two forks and add liquid from slow cooker to desired  consistency
 Serve over cabbage noodles with a BIG dollop of sour cream

Cabbage noodles:
 Cut large head of cabbage into quarters
 Cut out core
 Slice each quarter into thin, noodle-like pieces
 Saute in LOTS of butter
 Add salt, pepper, garlic powder
 Enjoy alone or in place of grain-based noodles!
