This Kalua Pork Roast is unbelievably amazing.  The secret lies in the slow and low method and only two ingredients that give it that authentic fire roasted flavor everyone just devours.  Liquid Smoke and Hawaiian Salt is all you need to take your standard Pork Roast to the next level.  Kosher Salt is the alternative if the other isn’t available to you but there are a ton of other benefits derived from the Hawaiian salt that most people don’t know about and you can read about it HERE.  And believe it or not, it really does effect the flavor and in my opinion its easily twice the difference.  I also like to add a sauce that I partially derived from my Mongolian Beef recipe and it is fantastic over the pork and rice.  Also, Kalua Pork is usually served with Hawaiian Macaroni Salad and my recipe for that is below as well.

I'm just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone's Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
