One word can describe this recipe... YUMMY!! I've never been to a luau, so I don't know if it can be compared to the pork served at one, but I do know it's mighty tasty. We all really enjoy it. Sophie ate 3 huge helpings of it and Chase cleaned it off his plate too. Brad ate his on a bun with bbq sauce. This oven kalau pork is super simple. You put it in the oven and forget about it. The most time consuming part was shredding it after it was cooked. At less than 50 cents per serving this was an exceptional dish.
