On the last evening of a recent trip to Hawaii, I enjoyed this wonderful and traditional dish - Kalua Pig.

It is eaten with cabbage, pineapple and rice as you see on the plate.

Now Kalua Pig is traditionally cooked in an imu - or basically a fire pit dug in the ground, and wrapped in Banana leaves and other things.

Most people are not realistically going to be able to do this, but thankfully there are some more kitchen-friendly varations out there. I spent some time searching and comparing and combining recipes, and this boils down to a 4 ingredient, slow-baked version.
