Aloha! This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy pork. Perhaps it’s because it brings back delicious and fond memories of enjoying kalua pork on the North shore of Oahu. What amazes me is how simple this recipe is. With a little patience and Hawaiian sea salt, you’ll be transported back to the islands. Pina colada in hand and your set. The best part is there is no digging a roasting pit on the beach required. Your slow-cooker will do all the work for you.
This recipe makes allot of kalua pork. You can practically feed an army with it. Especially if you serve up a few side dishes like cole slaw or fresh fruit. So, if you’re hosting the family or feeding your teen’s football team ~ this might be the recipe for you. I save at least half in an air-tight container and freeze it for more gloomy days when I feel like some Aloha spirit. It’s cheaper than a ticket to Honolulu (although, not nearly as exciting). 🙂
