Slow-Cooker Kalua Pork & Cabbage

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 9 hours YIELD: 12 servings
My slow-cooker pork has four ingredients and takes less than 10 minutes to prep. The result tastes just like the luscious slow-roasted kalua pork that's served in Hawaii. —Rholinelle DeTorres, San Jose, California

Ingredients

  • 7 bacon strips, divided
  • 1 boneless pork shoulder butt roast (3 to 4 pounds), well trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt
  • 1 medium head cabbage (about 2 pounds), coarsely chopped

Directions

  • 1. Line bottom of a 6-qt. slow cooker with 4 bacon strips. Sprinkle all sides of roast with salt; place in slow cooker. Arrange remaining bacon over top of roast.
  • 2. Cook, covered, on low 8-10 hours or until pork is tender. Add cabbage, spreading cabbage around roast. Cook, covered, 1 to 1-1/4 hours longer or until cabbage is tender.
  • 3. Remove pork to a serving bowl; shred pork with 2 forks. Using a slotted spoon, add cabbage to pork and toss to combine. If desired, skim fat from some of the cooking juices; stir juices into pork mixture or serve on the side.
