Recipe: Kalua Pork

This recipe for Kalua Pork is a staple in our house. We love it! We eat our favorite foods from Hawaii pretty often around here and this is a perfect fix if you have a craving but not a lot of time. Since there’s only two of us this makes more than enough pork for left overs. I typically pick up a piece of pork shoulder that’s a little over five pounds and we eat it for a meal or two and I have enough to save at least two meals worth. It works great for freezing, reheats nicely, and is versatile. While we almost always eat it as Kalua Pork there are times I’ll mix it up with some homemade bbq sauce for pulled pork sandwiches or mix it with some spices and turn it into pork carnitas. Whatever you use it for, I’m sure you’ll love this incredibly easy and delicious recipe!

Serves: 6


3 lb Bone-In Pork Shoulder

2 Pinches Hawaiian Salt

1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Liquid Smoke


Add two teaspoons Liquid Smoke to bottom of slow cooker and a pinch of Hawaiian salt. Place pork shoulder into cooker and top with remaining two teaspoons of liquid smoke and half pinch of Hawaiian salt. Secure lid and cook on low for 10 hours turning over half way through cooking time.


This recipe is easy to adjust according to the weight of your pork.  Cook 10 hours for every three pounds of meat. Check your local health food store for Hawaiian Salt. If you’re still unable to find it you can easily order it online it makes a difference! Serve with steamed green cabbage, sticky rice, and mac salad.
