Kalua Pig Recipes

Traditional Kalua Pig is pork roasted in an underground oven called an Imu, but simpler versions can be cooked in a modern oven or a crock pot. Modern recipes sometimes add seasonings like garlic, soy sauce, and ginger, but more traditional recipes are often seasoned only with salt and smoke from the Imu.
