Kalua Pork / Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Ingredients (with Amazon Links)
- 3-4 pound pork roast
- 1-2 tablespoons Kosher salt
- 1/3 c. liquid smoke
- 1 c. cup water
- 4 washed ti leaves If ti leaves aren't available or you don't know what they are, no worries-- it is still great without them -they just add a cool local Hawaiian element to the dish.
- Line bottom of crock pot with 2 ti leaves (if you have them). Rub pork generously with salt, pour on liquid smoke then place on ti leaves (or in the crock pot). Add water. Fit remaining ti leaves (again, if you have them) around outer edge of crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until it will easily shred into juices (do not drain).
