I'm from Hawaii and was craving kalua pig and cabbage. Found this dish and it it tastes like it came straight from Hawaii. I used a 4 lb pork shoulder. I couldn't find hawaiian sea salt at the grocery store and remembered that I had a hawaiian seasoning that my mom had brought up for me. It had sea salt, pepper, ginger, garlic, and alea salt. Rubbed that in as well as the liquid smoke flavoring. Threw it in the crockpot and cooked it on low for about 17 hrs. I did what another reviewer had said and put the sauce in the freezer and scraped the fat off the top. I shredded the pork, then put the sauce over it. Also cut up some cabbage and threw it in there too. I added a few more drizzles of the liquid smoke flavoring and and about 1/2 cup of water to keep it most. I put it on low for another hour and it came out sooo good!! I will make this again when I have another craving for kalua pig and cabbage. I serve it over rice.
