Kalua Pork

This is a VERY easy and wonderful dinner. It was a hit at our family Sunday gathering. I bought the pork butt roast with bone in - which was very inexpensive ( I think it was about $1.97 a lb). I use the crushed garlic and the chopped ginger in jars that you find refrigerated near the produce section - sure makes it easy! This is a picture of the roast ready to be wrapped in foil and put in the oven.

Kalua Pork
4 lb. pork shoulder or butt roast
1 1/2 TBSP kosher salt
2 TBSP liquid smoke
1 TBSP grated ginger
2 cloves garlic, crushed (about 1 heaping tsp)
3 TBSP lite soy sauce

Mix salt, liquid smoke, ginger, garlic and soy sauce. Rub over meat. Wrap meat in foil, place on a rimmed cookie sheet and put into the oven at 350 degrees for 4 hours. Let stand 15 minutes. Shred roast, removing fat (and bone). Pour any of the remaining juices over the meat. Serve over cooked rice (optional: can also be topped with pineapple)

This also turns out very well cooked in a crock pot for about 7-8 hours on low! (minus the foil)

One of our favorite meals around our house! So good with rice & steamed cabbage, carrots, and cauliflour too.
