Can you make it ahead of time?
Once you have shredded your kalua pork, it will keep well in the slow cooker on the warm setting for up to two hours til you are ready to serve.
Leftovers, once cooled, can be store in the fridge for up to 4 days and can be reheated on the stovetop gently til warmed through, or in the oven at 350F, covered with foil for 10 to 15 minutes.
When reheating, you may want to add a couple of tablespoons of water to the pork so that it doesn’t dry out.
Can you freeze it?
Yes! If you have a lot of leftovers, this shredded pork freezes well and will keep for up to 6 months. Place the cooled pork into freezer bags and remove as much air as possible.
Thaw in the fridge overnight before reheating.
What do you serve it with?
I served this Crockpot pork with macaroni salad and some fresh pineapple. It also works great served with rice and some fried cabbage. Feel free to pile it into sandwiches too with your favorite toppings!
- If using a bone-in roast, or a heavier roast, increase cook time to 12-14 hours.
- Liquid smoke adds an incredible flavor to this pork. If you don’t have any, rubbing in some smoked paprika makes a good alternative.
