      I made this recipe for a Hawaiian friend. He was very skeptical that it was going to come out dry, because his family has to baste the pork every 10 minutes when they make it. I was fully prepared for an "I told you so", but the pork came out AMAZING! This is now a recipe I make maybe once/month because it is soooo easy to prepare. To finish off the dish I slice up green cabbage and steam it in the juices from the meat, then shredd the pork with forks and mix it up with the cabbage and serve over rice. YUM!

      I made this for a luau. It was perfect. I was nervous that it would dry out but it didn't. The meat was juicy and fell off the bone. I used cabbage leaves instead of ti or banana leaves because that was all I could get around here.
