“Inspired by the luaus in Hawaii, I set out to make an easy, tasty slow-cooker version of kalua pork. The meat is fall-off-the-bone yummy. This recipe is not overly smoky, but you may add more smoke if you like. Serve with rice, buns, or poi.” - by Mei

"This was pretty good. I followed the recipe exactly, except I used low sodium soy sauce and a bag of shredded red cabbage. I also added ~1/2 cup of water to the crock pot. It was a bit salty, so ne..." See morext time I will cut back on the kosher salt, and increase the pepper, ginger and liquid smoke."
"I followed the recipe, but added 1/2-1 cup of chicken broth and discovered that was totally unnecessary as it was a little soupy. It was still delicious, but I, too, would cut the salt down a little ..." See morenext time (I also used low sodium soy sauce). The next night I reheated some (it makes A LOT!) of the meat in a pan so it got a little crispy and made burritos. Super yummy!"
