If you’ve never tried authentic Hawaiian style kalua pork, then you’re in for an extra special treat with the recipe that I’ll be sharing today.

And while technically, it’s not cooked how it is when served locally (kalua literally translates into ‘cooking in an underground oven’), it still turns out every bit as good as anything you would find on the island.
