Kalua Pork Slow Cooker Style

Kahlua Pork Slow Cooker Style

Cheater Style Kalua Pork


Here in Hawaii, Kalua Pork is on every menu at practically every restaurant.  And with good reason, it’s delicious!  However, the traditional Kalua Pork involves an underground pit, banana leaves, lava rocks and a whole pig.  I don’t know about you, but my fridge just won’t hold a whole pig, so I scoured around for a shortcut recipe and came up with this one.  Get your slow cooker out, add 4 easy ingredients and you’re done!  You’re family will go hog wild for this dish!

Kalua Pork Slow Cooker Style
dinner, low-carb


  • 6-8 pound pork butt roast
  • 1 TBSP liquid smoke flavoring
  • 1 TBSP Hawaiian Black Lava Sea Salt
  • 1 TBSP Hawaiian Alaea Sea Salt

  1. Cut as much fat from the pork roast as you can.
  2. Make 1 inch slits all over the roast.
  3. Rub the salt all over the roast into the slits. Make sure to get every nook and cranny.
  4. Put the pork into the slow cooker.
  5. Pour the liquid smoke on the pork and rub all over.
  6. Cook on low for 14 hours or until meat is ready to shred with a fork.
  7. Remove pork from slow cooker and shred, removing any excess fat.
  8. Add drippings for extra flavor & juiciness!

You can use only one flavor of Hawaiian Sea Salt, but I think it adds so much depth and flavor to use both Black Lava Salt & Red Alaea Sea Salt

Serve this pork up with some fresh, crisp coleslaw & some juicy pineapple!

Leftover Idea: Grab some Hawaiian Buns and make sliders! I like to add kalua pork, fresh spinach, slice of tomato to my Hawaiian bun. Delicious!


  • Cook on high for 6-7 hours. 🙂

    So, can I cook on high for a shorter period of time?!

  • I have never even heard of those seasonings! Thanks for sharing at Delicious Dish Tuesday. Please provide a back link to the hop when you get a moment 🙂

  • I can’t believe how awesome your pork looks with such a simple recipe. I’m a lover of all things that can be made in a crock and it just so happens I have liquid smoke left from the last time I made bbq sauce. Sold! I’m all in! Looks fabulous!

  • Super delicious!
