Shredded Kalua Pork

Shredded Kalua Pork

3-4 pounds pork roast
1-2 tablespoons Hawaiian salt or Kosher salt
1/4 c. liquid smoke
1 c. cup water (you can also use beef or chicken broth)
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 crockpot 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 crockpot). 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. Garnish with chopped cilantro. Serve with rice and coleslaw.

First of all, sorry for the delay in posting... this time of year has caught up with me too! Now, with this recipe, I didn't have the ti leaves, but it still turned out fabulous!! We really enjoyed this recipe. I also spiced things up a bit by making Cafe Rio's cilantro lime rice and serving that instead of the plain white rice. I think that made such a great variation to the flavor! If you need that recipe for the rice, let me know!!
