Pork butt, liquid smoke, garlic, and Hawaiian smoked sea salt laid on the table

If you haven’t tried Hawaiian kalua pork, you definitely need to add it to your family’s meal rotation. It tastes like an authentic, smoky Hawaiian pork and is so easy to put together.

I love to keep my freezer stocked with meat from Butcherbox, then I just pull out pork butt when I’m ready to make this pork. Butcherbox makes it easy to always have meat on hand, and I never have to worry about getting it with my weekly groceries or stocking up at Costco.

This recipe makes a TON of pork, which makes for great leftovers or other meals later on in the week. I like to serve this pork with coconut rice and sauteed cabbage, and then use leftovers for shredded pork sandwiches or tacos another night.

Now let’s make kalua pork!
