Week 37 – Kalua Pig!

Kalua Pig Recipe
(A luau favorite; Here is a way to duplicate without cooking a whole pig)
- 2 lbs. lean pork butt
- Hawaiian salt
- Liquid smoke
Cut pork butt into chunks about 6 inches by 3 inches. Salt liberally. Douse with liquid smoke. Cook in slow cooker for at least 8 hours at low temperature. While in the cooker, shred in the cooked out oil and then drain. (If you shred outside of its natural oil, it will be too dry).
As mentioned in my first recipe blog, Hawaii is a wonderful mix of cultures and each of these peoples brought with them their customs and foods during the early plantation days. Because we have this rich Hawaiian heritage, I started this running blog that features recipes with a Hawaiian flair.
