Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap - Easiest Possible Hawaiian Roasted Pork

I think I must be ready for my vacation because I have Hawaii on the brain. This recipe is just fabulous and requires almost no work.

3 lb. pork butt
2 c. water
1 tsp. liquid smoke
1/4 c. salt

Place pork fat side up in a roasting pan or deep casserole. Combine water and liquid smoke. Pour over meat and sprinkle with salt. Cover and roast for 3 hours at 400 degrees. Remove from pan and shred.

This is a super easy recipe and incredibly tasty. I actually trimmed almost all of the fat off of the roast and it was still very moist and tender. I also used only about 1/8 of a cup of salt, with no taste issues. This goes really well with rice and some tropical fruit. Hope you enjoy!

  1. This sounds good! A friend of mine turned me on to cooking pork in the microwave and now that is the only way I will make pork. Have you ever tried it that way. It is juicy and doesn't dry out.
