Hawaii :: the Kalua Pork Recipe

I have been sitting on this post for over a year... how sad...  but, I must say - this has become a staple recipe at our house - we make a big batch and freeze the leftovers for continued enjoyment!  Hope you enjoy it too!

Kalua Pork

We had the most amazing pork sandwiches EVER while we were in Hawaii.  They were called Kalua Pork Sliders/Sandwiches, so the first chance we got, we googled Kalua Pork so we could attempt to make our own.  Inspired by this recipe, and a couple changes, here is what we came up with (SUPER easy):

3(ish) lbs pork butt roast
1/4 (ish) cups of water
1tsp liquid smoke flavoring
1/8 cup Hawaiian sea salt (or other coarse salt of your choosing)

Stick everything in a 6qt. crockpot and cook on low for 8-ish hours or until the meat starts to shred nicely.  Serve on toasted buns with melted cheese, tomato and avocado slices, or wrap them in romaine lettuce... probably my favorite.
