Easy @ Home Kalua Pork

Taste Maui with just three ingredients

Introducing the most simple recipe for Kalua Pork.  An island favorite and served at every Luau in the state of Hawaii, the star of this show is by NOH;  Hawaiian Kalua !  It’s a smoked salt.  This one item, along with several pounds of pork, and a few banana leaves, will leave you in awe and your belly ready to burst as it’s difficult to just eat a few bites.  

All you need is a Crock Pot.  I wasn’t a fan of this “cheater” small appliance, but as I’ve become a frequent flyer of the Kalua Pork Recipe, I have come to appreciate it’s ease and grace;  easier than digging a whole and more graceful than schlepping rocks for sure!

Pork shoulder, butt, and/or boneless rib meat are all terrific contenders.  Select what’s fresh, readily available and of course, most cost effective.  

Generously rub with smoked salt.  Line your crock pot with banana leaf, cover, set to hight and forgettaboutit for eight hours.  I first used this item working with Carol Longhi at Lotus Catering.  We served Kalua Pork Tostatas, and I do my own version of these on the regular.  My favorite are tacos, so easy, with cilantro micro greens and caramelized pineapple pico de gallo.
