This Kalua Pork Burrito is so refreshing it’s like a tall cold glass of water, it’s that good. Hawaiian meets Tex-Mex and it’s not crudded up with too many spices or seasonings either. In fact, the only added seasoning in this entire combo is Hawaiian Sea Salt and Lime Juice. So the great thing about that is you’re completely relying on the flavors of all of the other natural ingredients. But, if you “just gotta”, add Cumin to the pulled pork.
Pork Burrito made from Leftovers
Carnitas is what you normally here or read on a menu when you’re ordering a Pork Burrito. But this particular burrito was the direct results of my leftover Kalua Pork that was served up on my birthday. So whether you call it Carnitas or just another Pork Burrito, you’re going to love this Wrap. And just so you know, the list of recipes that can be made from a Kalua Pork Roast goes on and on and I’ll list the recipes I’ve already posted down below as well as the original Kalua Pork Roast recipe. Also, I’ve got a great Seafood Enchilada recipe that will blow you’re mind, along with the original Salsa recipe I use in this video.
If you’re looking to turn a standard Pork Shoulder or Butt Roast(above) into fall off the bone tender Kalua Pork(below), then you’ve come to the right place!
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.
Here’s a Macaroni Salad you are going to love and it’s a great recipe to throw into your 4th of July festivities. Now, I’ve advertised that it’s Hawaiian Style, and I mean just that; “style”! Which means it’s like it in a variety of ways but I’ve changed up a few things that are so subtle most people won’t even know the difference. The only thing most folks will notice is just how damn good it is and that’s all that matters to me!
I’ve collaborated with several other Food Channels for this Holiday and we’ve pulled together to share each others ideas for celebrating July 4th in style, comfort and good taste. So CLICK HERE and check out this playlist for some more great ideas!
