Why it’s best to make your own Italian Pork Roast
One of the things that Jennifer, Founder of Gluten Free School, has always noted about her transition to living gluten-free was how much she missed the Italian family favorites (like Italian pork sandwiches). Initially she felt like she was breaking up with her Italian heritage and family over food, but with time, she’s been able to reclaim much of the flavors she feared were lost by learning to cook.
Making recipes like this one at home can be key to regaining normalcy that many lament when making the gluten free switch. Especially when many restaurants that make “authentic” Italian food add wheat flour to recipes that don’t typically call for it. Jennifer found out that the restaurant that’s been the winner of the best Italian pork where she lives adds flour to their Italian pork. However her mom started making this recipe after this discovery so that Jennifer could enjoy this favorite again.
That’s why Jennifer wanted to share this recipe with you… from her family to yours! And we love this Italian Pork Roast not only because it’s delicious, but because the slow cooker or Crock Pot makes it so easily. Plus the non-gluten-free folks will love it just as much and can easily enjoy the shredded meat in a sandwich with the traditional topping of roasted peppers.
(NOTE: Cento brand offers many gluten-free jarred roasted pepper options. You can see their list of gluten-free products here.)
Don’t forget to round out the rest of the meal by pairing the Italian Pork Roast with some easy sides such as delicious grilled veggie salad and sweet potato fries! Or go full-on Italian and enjoy this with the Zoodle pasta and quick marinara sauce.
