How to Make Kalua Pork in a Slow Cooker


If you're looking to cook something other than barbecue in your slow cooker, Kalua pork roast is a dish with tropic appeal. Kalua pork roast is typically a smokey and salty dish, relying on Hawaiian sea salt for much of the flavor, but adding sweet flavoring such as brown sugar can add new dimensions. Most recipes for Kalua pork call for a pork butt roast, but you can also make this dish with a shoulder roast.

Things You'll Need

  • 5-6 lbs. pork butt or shoulder roast
  • 2 forks
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. Hawaiian sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. Liquid Smoke flavoring
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 6-quart slow cooker
  • Pierce pork all around with a fork.

  • Rub pork with Hawaiian sea salt and brown sugar. Then pour Liquid Smoke over the meat.

  • Cover and cook pork in your slow cooker on low heat for 16-20 hours. Turn pork over after the first eight hours of cooking.

  • Remove pork from the slow cooker carefully. Pull pork apart with two forks. Add drippings as needed to moisten the pork.

Tips & Warnings

  • Be careful when removing pork from the slow cooker because contents will be hot.
