Crock Pot Kalua Style Pork

Having a delicious, protein packed meal is quite simple with this versatile recipe.  You can make a crock pot full on the weekend and have enough for the entire week, or freeze for a quick meal option.  This is perfect for topping salads or sweet potatoes, as a main dish or for sandwiches and wraps! 

I have made this using pork and chicken (boneless breasts or thighs - whatever you have on hand).  


  • Pork roast (shoulder, butt, anything works - if using a bone-in roast, make sure you remove all the bone pieces before serving)
  • Salt
  • Liquid Smoke (found in just about any grocery store, usually by the condiments)


  1. Pierce the pork with a knife multiple times.
  2. Generously salt both sides of the roast.
  3. Sprinkle on liquid smoke (to taste).
  4. Place in crock pot on low for 12 - 16 hours.  The roast will fall apart very easily.
