    Ingredients


    Process

    Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
    1. Chop the onion and place into slow cooker
    2. Mix together the smoked paprika, chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, and 1 tsp salt
    3. Sprinkle the seasoning all over the pork and then place it into the slow cooker on top of the onions
    4. Whisk together the maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, and tomato paste
    5. Pour the sauce directly over the pork and cook on low for 6-7 hours
    6. An hour or two before the pork is done, preheat your oven to 400 F for the squash
    7. Slice off the top of the squash to reveal the seeded center (this may be deeper than you think)
    8. Scoop out the seeds and place the squash into a glass baking dish
    9. Sprinkle the pepper and the remaining salt onto the flesh of each squash
    10. Place a tablespoon of ghee or grass-fed butter into the hollow center of each squash
    11. Place the squash into the oven and roast for 1 hour (keep an eye on it starting at 45 minutes into cooking)
    12. While the squash is roasting, shred the cooked pork with two forks and toss well with the sauce remaining in the slow cooker
    13. When the squash is perfectly roasted, remove from the oven and stuff 1 cup of the shredded pork into each of the squash
