Slow Cooker Kalua Pork

Slow Cooker Kalua Pork. Just three ingredients and less than 10 minutes prep and dinner is started.

This particular recipe has been on my to-blog list for over a year. I’ve made it several times but would forget that I needed to take pictures of it until after it was all gone. That sort of thing happens more often than I care to admit.

Anyhoo, this is a pretty easy to make recipe because it only has three ingredients and as the name states is cooked in, my favorite small appliance of all time, the slow cooker.

  1. Wow that *is* simple. Where does the name come from?

    • Kalua is Hawaiian for “to cook in an underground oven”. Kalua pig is commonly served at luau feasts. We usually serve kalua pig with cooked cabbage. Ono!

    I like to make this style pulled pork because I don’t like the flavor of BBQ.
    I usually add a couple tbsp of teriyaki sauce (rub over the roast) and a can of pineapple 🙂
