Kalua Pig

Thank you to my awesome brother in law who introduced us to the BEST pork recipe Ive ever had. This pork is so juicy, tender and full of flavor. I love it! Jared found the recipe from

Kalua Pig

4 pounds Pork Shoulder Or Butt
1-½ Tablespoon Hawaiian Red Gold Sea Salt (We used regular sea salt)
¼ cups Coconut Aminos Or Soy Sauce (We used soy sauce)
3 cloves Garlic, Grated
1 whole 3-4 Inch Piece Of Ginger, Grated
1 teaspoon Liquid Smoke
½ whole Onion, Cut Into 2 Pieces

Preheat oven to 325ºF. Line a 9×13 baking pan with foil.
Make deep slashes in pork with a knife. Place pork in pan. Sprinkle pork with Hawaiin sea salt.
Combine coconut aminos (or soy sauce), grated garlic, grated ginger, and liquid smoke. Rub mixture all over pork, working it into the slashes.
Place pork fatty side up. Place onion piece on each side of pork. Wrap pork tightly with foil, folding together 2 sheets of foil if necessary. Make sure the pork is completely sealed in there.
Bake at 325ºF for 5 hours. Shred pork and serve. EnJOY!

This sounds good! Do you think it could be done in a slow cooker?

Oh defiantly, I think cook on low for 8 hrs should be perfect!
