One of the best things about a Hawaiian luau is all the good food – especially the roasted pig. This slow cooker kahlua pork recipe comes as close as you can get to the real thing without an underground oven. Plus, it is seriously so EASY to make and everyone loves it. Three ingredients is all it takes!
This slow cooker kahlua pork recipe is a great meal to feed a crowd. Keep things simple and serve the pork with a short-grained rice. I use my rice cooker to make sticky Calrose rice, and it turns out perfect every time. It also keeps the rice warm until ready to serve.
Kahlua pork is also delicious served BBQ sandwich-style on a bun. Other ways I like to serve kahlua pork is on top of a green salad, on tacos, and with sweet potatoes. My kids like for me to make mini kahlua pork sandwiches with the King’s Hawaiian Rolls. There are so many ways to eat kahlua, even the leftovers never get boring.
Slow cooker kahlua pork is so tender and easily shreds with a fork.
Don’t be surprised when your Pork Shoulder shrinks a lot during the cooking process!
If you live near a specialty grocery store like Trader Joe’s or World Market, you may be able to find red Hawaiian Salt to substitute for the Sea Salt in this recipe. I think regular Sea Salt works just fine, but using Hawaiian Salt will give this an even more authentic flavor. You can also order Hawaiian Salt on Amazon.
If you like cabbage, toss a couple cups of shredded cabbage into the slow cooker during the last two hours of cooking. I love Kahlua Pork with Cabbage mixed in, but my kids eat it better without cabbage.
