Kalua Pork









Ingredients:
3-4 lbs Pork shoulder, boneless preferred
2 Tbsp Liquid smoke
2 Tbsp Salt (sea salt preferred)


Cooking Instructions:
Rub pork with liquid smoke and salt all over. Enclose in aluminum foil and bake at 275 for approximately 4-5 hours. Do not open foil to peek. Remove from oven. Open foil and shred with two forks. Can remove fat if desired. Can use next day for Kalua pork and cabbage. Place foil package in glass baking dish if neatness is an issue. If you can get ti leaves, you can wrap pork in leaves then foil. Not necessary though.

You must have read my mind...my next request was the pork...we also had this at our reception that was given by two of my favorite polynesian people...we have been married 10 years, and I haven't gone to a reception yet that my hubby doesn't say: "NO one will ever has as good of food as we did." He will be thrilled if I can get this stuff to turn out!

I may save it for the anniversary as a GREAT surprise...the meat and noodles were his favorite and the rolls were mine.

REading my mind? Next request - those amazing noodles.

I am so glad that you are willing to share...i just have a feeling that you only share because you know that us gringo's won't be able to cook it right :)
