Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker
Talk about easy! And so delicious. I found this recipe on allrecipes.com and it really is just as it states. What an easy way to enjoy a traditional Hawaiian dish without having to dig a hole and cook a whole pig! I only buy 2.5-3 lb. roasts because there is just my husband and I- and it still makes quite a bit of meat. This dish is great for crowds and themed get-togethers! It comes out so moist and flavorful. I've made it with regular sea salt before, but the Hawaiian sea salt really does make a difference! The flavor is much more smooth and delightful. I always serve it with jasmine rice, a veggie, and pineapple on the side. Mm mm good!
1 (6 pound) pork butt roast (I have used pork shoulder as well)
1 1/2 tablespoons Hawaiian sea salt
1 tablespoon liquid smoke flavoring
1.Pierce pork all over with a carving fork. Rub salt then liquid smoke over meat. Place roast in a slow cooker.
2.Cover, and cook on Low for 16 to 20 hours, turning once during cooking time.
3.Remove meat from slow cooker, and shred, adding drippings as needed to moisten.
Enjoy with your favorite Hawaiian sides!
Gluten free: should be GF, just double check your liquid smoke!
