Crockpot Kalua Pork

  • 1 bone-in or boneless pork shoulder or butt or fresh ham - whatever will fit in your crockpot
  • 2 tablespoons Hawaiian red sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons hickory-type liquid smoke
  1. Poke the pork all over with a carving fork. Rub first side with salt, then liquid smoke; turn over and rub the other side.
  2. Place in crockpot and cook on Low at LEAST 12 hours or til the pork shreds easily. Reserve some of the liquid that will have accumulated - pour off the rest - shred the pork and add back to the crockpot with enough liquid to moisten.
  3. This is moist and tender and really tasty and VERY easy!
  4. Don't use too lean a cut of pork - the fat cooking into the meat over the long crockpot time is what makes it tender and tasty.
  5. I ate mine with some Chipotle Tabasco sauce - LC BBQ sauce would be good too.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
