I loves me some pork, that said I really loves me some Hawaiian food. With their powers combined I am… well not Captain Planet, that distinction goes to Don Cheadle 😉 . I’m just really satisfied.
Crock Pot Kalua Pork
1 pork roast
2 Tblsp Kosher salt or Pink salt
2 Tblsp Liquid smoke (whatever flavor you like)
2 Tblsp apple cider vinegar.
Pierce pork all over with a fork or knife. Combine liquid smoke and salt. Rub mixture over meat. Toss your roast into the crock and if possible let your pork hang out in the fridge for an hour or two to really let the brine do its thing. Place roast in a slow cooker.
Cover, and cook on low for 16 to 20 hours fat cap up so that lovely fat melts into the meat. Turn once during cooking time, my recommendation is to do so later in the cooking time 14 hrs or so.
Remove meat from slow cooker and shred.
Serve with some potato mac or slaw.
Cook time:16 to 20 hours
