Kalua Pork

A real Hawaiian favorite, this meal is ridiculously easy (and delicious)! You can tell all your friends that you dug a pit (imu) in the back yard and cooked a whole pig with hot rocks and taro leaves!

Ingredients
  • 5 lbs. pork shoulder (butt roast)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • liquid smoke
  • about 2 tablespoons kosher salt
Directions

Trim off any thick fat cap off the pork (don't leave it bare - a little fat is good for flavor). Lightly rub entire roast with salt, then rub in a thin layer of liquid smoke. Place pork in the slow cooker with water, then cook on low for 16-20 hours. Shred in pot with two forks, stir to evenly distribute juices. Serve with white rice. Serves 15
