Kalua Pork

While in Hawaii we had some famous Kalua pork at a luau.  Delicious!  While it would be quite a challenge to roast a whole pig in an earthen pit, called an imu, this version allows you to enjoy this scrumptious island treat any day.

Kalua Pork



  • 1 (6 pound) pork butt roast
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Hawaiian sea salt 
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke flavoring



  1. Pierce pork all over with a carving fork. Rub salt then liquid smoke over meat. Place roast in a slow cooker.
  2. Cover, and cook on Low for 16 to 20 hours, turning once during cooking time.
  3. Remove meat from slow cooker, and shred, adding drippings as needed to moisten.
