Tasty Tuesday Hawaiian Pork Roast!

This one is one of the easiest and tastiest things I've made in ages. I used a 3 pound roast and cooked it for about 8 hours and it was wonderful! Recipe and pics are courtesy of Diva Donna!



  • 1 (6 pound) pork butt roast
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Hawaiian sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke flavoring


  1. Pierce pork all over with a carving fork. Rub salt then liquid smoke over meat. Place roast in a slow cooker.
  2. Cover, and cook on Low for 16 to 20 hours, turning once during cooking time.
  3. Remove meat from slow cooker, and shred, adding drippings as needed to moisten and enjoy!


  1. Ooh Cheryl
    He does look tasty. I'd like to pork him. What?? That's a verb isn't it?

  2. That recipe sounds delicious and oh so very tasty. It takes time but it sounds like the effort is well worth it.

    The hunk made me smile. I saw him and thought, "Oh cute smile and body" then I looked down and went, "Oh my" XD

  3. This ah...Made me...smile...Yeah that's the word. lol


  4. Yes, Mary, I believe pork is a verb. At least in this part of the country!

    That's just it, Ana, there is virtually NO effort involved in this recipe. It just takes a little time to do its thing.

    I tried that link. It's still loading...

  5. All I can say is:
    Fan-damn-tastic!!! The pork roast and Mr. Hunky Hawaiian who knows we want all the meat he's got.

    Ladies go with the smaller #3 lb roasts like Cheryl did(cut the time to 8 hours) unless you have a big family. It makes plenty of great Shredded Pork Sandwiches. Top it with your favorite sauces. BBQ or eat it plain. The secret is in the salt and liquid smoke.
    The smell in the house will have your mouth watering all day.

  6. Hi Cheryl

    There's something very odd about that guy's pose...

    Until you see the wee giftie 'neath his jockeys, it looks like he's sitting sideways....... [inside of right thigh becomes OUTSIDE of left thigh...weird]....... with his left hand on his muscular, kangaroo-style tail.

    Must be something to do with the very round muscalature...no long smooth lines like usual.

    Yes, I know, I'm obviously sleep-deprived


  7. You go Merry Mary..."pork" is a verb if you want it to be:)

    The pork roast sounds divine and so easy. I love it. Throw a hunk of meat in the crock pot and turn it on! HA my kind of meal. As it happens my pot has a meat rack but right now I need to grab a bun and catch that spill-over:D Ummmm...hum

    (think Sling Blade for sound)

    P.S. Diva Donna...is Hawaiian Sea Salt different than regular Sea Salt?

  8. Hmmmmm-delicious. Makes me wanna go to a luau! Our pretty hunk today has no tan lines-did you notice? Nice muscles and very nice eyes!

  9. I believe you're right, Olde, but then, I'm chronically sleep deprived too...

    Hawaiian sea salt is different, Nancy, but I couldn't find it, so I used plain sea salt. It was still good.

    LOL! Yes, Lisa, his yummydoodle even has a tan!

  10. Nancy, I like Hawaiian Sea Salt because it isn't processed. You just have to watch the label. You don't want refined sea salt. I used a red. It's great with pork. Tonight I used it in scalloped potatoes and pork chops. You don't need to use much.

  11. Hi guys
    Hubby loves the natural salts too. Our fave is the Cypress one. It's got a pyramid shape & is very mild.
    We crush it to a fine size with our fingertips. good on steaks or salads. Our grocery store has them from around the world.
