3-Ingredient Slow Cooker Kalua Pig Recipe: Serves 8


Transform a simple pork shoulder into an exotic feast with just three ingredients: a five-pound skinless, boneless pork shoulder, one tablespoon of Alaea sea salt (the signature Hawaiian red salt), and one tablespoon of liquid smoke for that indispensable smoky flavor.


Preparation Steps:

  1. Begin by piercing the pork all over with a fork or sharp knife, ensuring the flavors will permeate throughout the meat.
  2. Massage the pork shoulder thoroughly with the Alaea sea salt, covering every inch.
  3. Place the seasoned pork in your slow cooker and evenly distribute the liquid smoke over it.
  4. Set your slow cooker to low and let it work its magic for about 16 hours, allowing patience to be your guide to flavor perfection.
  5. Once done, the pork will be exceptionally tender, ready to be shredded with forks, with any excess fat removed for a leaner serving.
