Oh, Slow Cooker Kalua Pork, how do I love thee… let me count the ways! I could just feast on this for days on end, making pulled pork sliders, lettuce-wrapped tacos, slathered in barbecue sauce, or mixed in with eggs for a great breakfast scramble.
It’s so tender and smoky, I can never get enough.
The trick to cooking a Kalua Pig is to allow it to cook very low and slow. I’m talking about the lowest setting on your slow cooker for 16 hours, baby.
And it’s worth it.
What makes this Paleo AND Whole30? Well, I’m glad you asked! It turns out that many brands of liquid smoke add a bunch of unnecessary garbage in it like sugar and caramel coloring. (Ugh, why?!) But the one brand I buy and love, Wright’s Liquid Smoke, has none of that! It’s just what it says it is: smoke from wood collected, condensed, and cooled down into a liquid. And it’s freaking delicious!
