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.
These Pulled Pork Fries are amazing. You can go with just about any roast recipe you want but I highly recommend you use 1 of 2 of my recipes; Kalua Pork Roast or my Oven Baked Ribs; Kalua, of course, being a tender Hawaiian style pulled pork and the Oven Baked Ribs being a Steak House style rib with Cumin.
These Fries are made fresh from medium sized Russet Potatoes but if you’re feeling lazy, don’t hesitate to bake or fry up a frozen bag of french fries. I also add a sliced sauteed onion to the pulled pork for a little more flavor and I cover the french fries with Colby Jack Cheese just before I smother with the pork and onions. And after everything is plated, I like to top the whole thing off with a Spicy Mayo Fry Sauce I’ve included in the ingredients below.
If you’re interested in other French Fry recipes, you should really look into my Lomo Saltado recipe. It’s a Peruvian dish with seasoned and seared steak, sauteed onions, peppers and french fries. If you’ve never seen this recipe I highly recommend you take a look at it.
Pulled Pork Fries Ingredients:
4 Russet Potatoes, sliced
1 Kalua Pork Roast or Rack of Ribs
1 Onion, sliced
1 tbsp Fresh Parsly, chopped
Salt to taste
Spicy Fry Sauce
1/4 cup Mayo
1/4 cup Ketchup
1 tbsp Horse Raddish
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
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.
