After being in Hawaii, and enjoying the Luau food, I was happy to find this recipe for Kahlua Pork.

4 - 5 lb
pork roast
hawaii (or rock) salt
lg. ti leaves


1Choose a large 4 - 5 lb. pork butt (roast) with ample fat. Score the top of the fat, and rub with the Hawaiian salt. Sprinkle generously with the liquid smoke. Wrap securely with the ti leaves. IF you can't find Ti leaves, you can use lg. spinach leaves (to make at least 3 layers), or even cabbage leaves as a last resort (flavor won't be as good).

2Tie securely with string, place in roasting pan on a rack add a cup of water in bottom of pan. Cook @ 300 degree oven for at least 4 hrs.

3When fully cooked, cut string, and remove ti or spinach leaves. Shred the meat (like Kahlua pig), mixing so fat is well distributed. Serve hot. Enjoy.
