Slow roasted pork- line a crock pot with bacon, add a pork roast, put bacon on top, sprinkle with pink rock salt, but regular salt works fine too. Cook it on low for like 12-15 hours. let it cool and pull it apart. Serve with paleo friendly cole slaw, And if they are non paleo people, add in some potato salad. They may ask where the bread is , telle them you forgot ;) or they may ask where the bbq sauce is, but once they taste it, they will be totally impressed.
Everyone I have fed this too loved it.

I cook for large numbers at work all the time. You can make whatever you like, just have to time it right and use multiple pans if you are doing something like a steak or grilled chicken.
What about a nice roast of your choice (pork or beef), some veggies, a salad and some potatoes. I really like roasted vegies which are easy too (asparagus, cauliflower, squashes all work) I think a fruit tray is an excellent choice for dessert and if you do dairy you can do a yogurt dressing.
Any Paleo friendly chicken entree, grilled, slow cooked, roasted, "fried" (altho that's too 'last minute' for company IMHO), a big salad, mashed cauliflower prepped ahead and reheated as a side option if your meat has a sauce/gravy, and a big bowl or two of veggies of choice, fruit for dessert or a paleo friendly dessert. I find if I'm entertaining non-Paleo types, I'll put out a hot bread of some kind and just not eat it myself. I'll put out appetizers that may contain nuts, olives, and then cheese and crackers so everyone can enjoy something. I like to prep everything ahead of time.
Another entree that always goes over well and can be made the day before is beef burgundy or a big savory beef stew (if you leave out the wine.) Serve w/veggies and the mashed cauliflower. None of our friends eat Paleo, and my biggest challenge is getting them to understand that when they entertain, if they will just be sure there is a meat and plenty of veggies and a salad, I'll be perfectly happy. When I have them over, I don't tell them what is Paleo and what isn't and I just don't eat the non-Paleo items. I've never had any complaints ;-)
