• Food & Drink: Recipes


5 pound Boston Butt roast (bone-in or out, doesn’t matter)
6 slices of bacon
1 1/2 Tablespoons of Alaea Red Hawaiian Coarse Sea Salt OR ~1 Tablespoon of Alaea Red Hawaiian Fine Sea Salt
5 peeled garlic cloves

Step 1

Line the slow cooker with 6 slices of bacon.

Step 2

Slice five slits in the pork to tuck in the garlic cloves and salt the pork all over (use 3/4 teaspoon of medium-coarse salt to 1 pound of meat, fine salt is about half that amount).

Step 3

Place the roast on top of the bacon; skin-side up, place on the lid, and cook the roast on low for 16 hours. Don’t add any liquid!

Step 4

Remove the meat and shred it with two forks.

Step 5

Check the pork for seasoning and adjust it with the cooking liquid that remains at the bottom of the pot. Don’t just shred the meat into the cooking liquid or it will be too salty!

This is best served with white rice and Sauteed Cabbage with Garlic.
