Kalua Pork
Mark Boughton/styling: Teresa Blackburn

This recipe makes great leftovers because the fat in the roast keeps the meat tender and moist. Don't use a loin or tenderloin. They are leaner but drier too.


4 pounds pork roast
2 tablespoons sea or kosher salt
2 tablespoons liquid smoke
1 tablespoon grated ginger
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons soy sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Rub salt, liquid smoke and seasonings over pork roast. Wrap securely in aluminum foil. Roast about 3 hours or until very tender.
  2. Remove from heat, let stand for about 15 minutes. Shred, removing slabs of fat, and serve.
