I lil bit of a twist from a regular hawaiian pork roast in that it uses bananas instead of pineapple.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the roast on a 22-in. x 18-in. piece of heavy-duty foil; sprinkle with liquid smoke and soy sauce.
  2. Wash bananas and place at the base of each side of roast.
  3. Pull sides of foil up round meat; add water. Seal foil tightly; wrap again with another large piece of foil.
  4. Place in a shallow baking pan; refrigerate overnight, turning several times.
  5. Place foil-wrapped meat in a roasting pan. Bake at 400° for 1 hour.
  6. Reduce heat to 325°; continue baking for 3-1/2 hours.
  7. Drain; discard bananas and liquid.
  8. Shred meat with a fork.
  9. Serve with your favorite BBQ sauce, if you desire.

I have used this recipe for years. It came from the Tase of Home magazine and we absolutely LOVE LOVE it. I do not discard the bananas, I just mush them up and add them to the pork. Adds great flavor and texture. Everyone sould try it at least once.
