This is an easy way to bring the taste of Hawaii to your table and to cook once for up to 3 meals.
Slice onion and place in the bottom of your slow cooker.
Pat pork dry with a paper towel and then rub it down with the salt. Place it into the slow cooker.
Pour liquid smoke over the top of the meat.
Cover and cook on low for at least 6 hours and up to 8.
Get your largest skillet and heat it up on high on your stove top.
Carefully pull pork pieces from your slow cooker and add to the hot skillet. After all of the pork is in the skillet, pour the juices and onion from the slow cooker over the pork and gently shred the pork. Add the soy sauce and salt to taste. Reduce. Lower heat to medium.
Start to scrape the bottom of the skillet. This is where the awesome crispy bits live.
Once it is fully reduced and the meat has "fried up" a bit, remove it from the skillet to a serving dish.
If your skillet looks like this, do not waste it! Throw a little chicken or veggie broth in there and deglaze that pan. Pour the remains over your pork. Another option is to add some sliced cabbage during the deglazing process, you won't regret it!
