Cook Like Mama Kat: Easy Crockpot Kalua Pork

By Brooke McLay |

Sometimes the simplest recipes are the most delicious.  Grilled cheese sandwiches.  A bowl of mac and cheese.  And, this crockpot full of authentic tasting Hawaiian Kalua Pork, arriving from Kathy at Mama Kat’s Losin’ It.   You won’t believe how easy it it to throw together tender, succulent meat that is shredded, tossed with steamed cabbage, and served over giant heaps of sticky rice.  Not only are you sure to love this recipe, even your pickiest eaters won’t be able to keep their forks off of their plates.  If you like this recipe, be sure to check out all of Mama Kat’s tips on feeding a family full of picky eaters.


1 (6 pound) pork butt (or shoulder) roast
1 1/2 Tablespoons Hawaiian Sea Salt….(we used Kosher salt)
1 Tablespoon liquid smoke flavoring

Pierce pork all over with a carving fork. Rub salt then liquid smoke over meat. Place roast in slow cooker.
Cover and cook on Low for 16 to 20 hours, turning once during cooking time.
Remove meat from slow cooker and shred, adding drippings as needed to moisturize.

    That looks delicious. I do my kalua pig in about 5 hours in the oven, and my family LOVES it.

    GASP! I thought this was my husband’s secret recipe! I guess that’s one of the upsides to marrying those local Hawaii guys…they come with good pork :)
