    Reading everyone else's recipe, I must have done something wrong, but I can't imagine what. The only thing I did differently was use banana leaves instead of ti leaves. Just couldn't find them. Anyway, this made my house smell Terrible. The meat had the same smell only milder. Maybe bad ingredients? Sadly, it was so awful, my family has begged me not to try this one again. Found another that came out wonderful.

    I have made this recipe many many times. The only changes I make is 1) i use a crockpot and cook on high for 1 hour and the turn down to low for about 12 hrs or overnight and 2) I add some water (about 1/2 cup but I monitor it and add more as necessary) to the mix...it keeps the meat moist during the long cook time. It ALWAYS comes out awesome. When I wake in the am, I touch it with the tongs and it literally falls apart.

    Great recipe. Followed recipe except I did what loves_flavor did and used an oven roasting bag. Scored pork. Rubbed with other ingredients that I combined in the bag (no bowl to clean) and sealed it. Let marinate for an hour and popped in oven in cast iron skillet. Used shredded pork to make Kalua Pork Nachos. Corn chips, pork, shredded cheddar and jack cheeses, in micro to melt cheese, top with sour cream, salsa, and guacamole (recipe #34233). Raves from all guests at New Years Eve gathering.

    I tried this using a crock pot. It came out a tad bit dry so I will stick to the recipe next time. But my incredibly picky daughter gobbled this up and both my hubby and I loved it. I think the would be great in the summer with some grilled veggie kabobs. Thank you!

    I make this pork every year for my annual luau party. I use pork shoulder from Smart & Final - they come 2 to a package. I marinate the pork the night before in the sauce. Then I cook them together in the oven for 8 hours at 275 degrees. It just comes apart so easy at the end. Be sure to wrap the pork completely in foil. After the pork is shredded we pour the sauce in the pan on top of the pork to keep it moist. Delicious every time I make it!
