Slow Cooker Kalua Pig Recipe

Kalua pig is a Hawaiian dish which is produced by slowly roasting a pig in an underground pit. Traditional kalua pig is seasoned only with salt, which allows the flavors of the pork and the banana or ti leaves to mesh. The end result is a very rich, smoky flavored pork. Our Slow Cooker Kalua Pig recipe avoids the hole in the backyard but utilizes the slow cooker to give you the traditional flavors of this recipe. This recipe will have you saying mahalo to us! It’s easy, tasty and is a great dish for potlucks or parties.
