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.
The 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.

4 Russet Potatoes, sliced
1 Kalua Pork Roast or Rack of Ribs

1 tbsp Fresh Parsly, chopped

Be sure to watch the short video tutorial and I’ll show you exactly how to make these delicious Pulled Pork Fries.
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. You don’t have to dig a hole in the ground and wrap the roast in banana leaves or burlap, either. I’m going to show you a simple recipe that can be cooked right in the oven and the results are absolutely incredible.
How to make an Oven Roasted Kalua Pork Roast
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.
If you’re wanting Kalua Pig, I guess it’s a real simple process of elimination and mathematics. If you don’t have a Louau to go to, number one, or if you don’t have an underground oven or even want to deal with digging a fire pit or making a temporary cinder block oven, or if you don’t even have an entire Pig to roast, here’ is a Slow Cooker alternative solution for Kalua Pork instead. And, if you haven’t had this at your Thanksgiving Dinner, YOU ARE MISSING OUT!
Kalua Pork Ingredients:
1 Pork Roast, Shoulder or Rump
1 tbsp Liquid Smoke
Sea Salt (Kosher or Margarita Salt is fine, Hawaiian Sea Salt is the best)
Tenderize your Kalua Pork Roast with a Skewer, Fork or Needling Device. Then Rub Liquid Smoke over entire Roast and then salt all sides as well. Put in Crock-pot and Cover. Roast on the Low setting for 15 hours. Then fork pull the meat apart on a separate plate and add Crock-pot Juice as needed to moisturize. Serve with Rice!
