  • Crock Pot Slow Cooker


  • 3-4 pound pork roast
  • 1-2 Tbsp Kosher salt
  • 1/3 c. liquid smoke
  • 1 c. water
  • 4 ti leaves Washed (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).
