Whether you use a stove-top pressure cooker or an electric one, the process is pretty much the same. All you need are a few strips of bacon (sugar-free if you’re doing a Whole30) , a pork shoulder roast, Hawaiian sea salt (or regular old kosher salt) , a slow cooker, and some patience.
Add this bacon kalua pork into the crock pot for the BEST Hawaiian Kalua pig recipe ever! Pork roast in hand, I glanced over and I saw all this leftover bacon that I was using for a different meal. Kalua pig is one of Hawaii’s best-known dishes, and easily replicated at home. 1 tbsp liquid smoke (I prefer Wright’s or Colgin, both are Paleo-friendly). In either a crock pot or Dutch oven, place the pork butt and pour the sea salt and liquid smoke on top.
