Instapot Kalua Pork


4 pounds Pork Shoulder (cut into pieces or pieces 2” max thickness)

1 1/2 Tablespoon Alea Salt

1 Tablespoon Liquid Smoke

1 cup Water


  • Rub pork with Alea Salt. Let rest 10 minutes.

  • Add water, liquid smoke and pork to the Instapot.

  • Pressure cook for 1 hour 15 minutes.

  • Let pressure release naturally for at least 15 minutes.

  • Shred pork and add just enough pot juices to keep moist.

NOTES: When I make this recipe with 2-3 pounds of pork, I could for 1 hour. I often use the excess juices and fat for cooking beans, as a base for Ramen broth, etc.
