  • 1½ tablespoons Alaea Hawaiian sea salt, or kosher salt
  • 1 4 to 5 pound pork butt or pork shoulder, boneless or bone-in
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1½ teaspoon natural liquid smoke
  • 1 medium head cabbage, cut in chunks
  1. Rub salt all over pork and place fat side up in slow cooker.
  2. Mix together sauce ingredients and pour over pork.
  3. Cook on high for an hour and turn down to low for about 7 to 8 hours.
  4. Add chunk pieces of cabbage and place on top of pork and cook during the last hour. During cooking press cabbage in some of the juices. When cabbage is soft use a slotted spoon to remove cabbage.

You can also shred cabbage, but we prefer our cabbage pieces larger. Enjoy!
