Having relocated from Hawaii to the mainland 6 yrs. ago, this is the same recipe we all use (even when in Hawaii, because who can afford to roast a whole pig?).
Pork Butt works the best (because that is what we are used to and it can be found for .99 lb.
Other ingredients to add:
1 Hawaiian chile pepper
and for a change of flavor: Garlic and Bay leaves.
Since it is impossible to find Hawaiian chili peppers, I use finely and SPARINGLY chopped habanero (about 4 small slices). It is pretty authentic.
To those that say the roast is salty: is because the slow cooker intensifies the flavor, so it is best to add less at the beginning and add more later if needed. Just a good rub around the pork with Hawaiian Salt will do it.
