I love the blog Nom Nom Paleo. I find the recipes to be very straight-forward, easy and absolutely delicious.
For all you pork-lovers out there, RUN out and get yourself a pork shoulder so that you can make this recipe … PRONTO! You will not be sorry! This pork shoulder came from our amazing local farm Aberdeen Hill. Sustainably raised, humanely treated, organic pasture-raised pork.
I usually follow Nom Nom Paleo’s recipe for Kalua Pig exactly. This week, I did not have any Hawaiian Red Salt, so I substituted Himalayan Pink Salt and liked it just fine.
What pork-lover doesn’t love pork wrapped in bacon? 🙂
Your house will smell like Kalua Pig for a day or two, but it is ABSOLUTELY worth it. Leftovers freeze and thaw beautifully.
I enjoy this with roasted sweet potatoes, boiled yukon golds or roasted spaghetti squash; and avocado slices or a spoon full of guacamole. Mr. Batch even likes this recipe, though he usually doesn’t eat much meat!
