Slow Cooker Kalua Pork

I forget how great it is to use the slow cooker in the warmer weather.  A great meal without heating up the house or standing over a hot stove.  Not only did this taste great but thanks to Gina's Skinny Recipes - this was ..well a skinny recipe.  Thanks to Gina I have learned how delicious a pork shoulder blade roast is.  I buy it often and I can't begin to tell you how many times we have made her Slow Cooked Pernil, this is a favorite of ours.  So I had the pork ready to go and went right to her recipe index and thought the Kalua Pork looked and sounded great.    Be sure to checkout Gina's blog for some hints on this recipe.

Gina served hers almost like a lettuce wrap - they look great!  I served ours over a bed of lettuce and keeping with my Revolt plan I used a wild rice that I had measured out before hand.  I did cheat a bit and top this with a bit of Hoisin, not on my diet plan but so yummy.  My Little Man decided his would be better sans anything green and inside a tortilla. However you decide to serve this - I promise it won't disappoint....enjoy!!

Thanks Gina for another fab recipe!

recipe from Skinnytaste
3 lb pork shoulder blade roast, trim fat
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
1 tablespoon kosher salt

Place pork in the slow cooker and stab all over with a knife.  Rub the salt all over the pork and then drizzle with the liquid smoke.  Cook the pork on low for 16 hours.
Once its done remove from pot and shred the meet.  Keep some of the juices to keep pork moist.  

Last year at this time I made Apple Meatloaf (Little Mans Favorite)  

Two years ago at this time I made  Broccoli Feta Quiche
