Kalua Pork & Cabbage, Salad & Fruit Bento

I haven't made my own kalua pork yet, but if you have a slowcooker, pork butt, hawaiian salt, and liquid smoke, you'll have a delicious kalua pig in a day. Here is my recipe here.

But if you live in Hawaii and you supported a Kalua Pig fundraiser, you'll end up with some in your freezer. You can do alot besides eating this with rice. One that I often do is Kalua Pork Quesadillas (another post). The other would be Kalua Pork & Cabbage, over rice.

1 cup of kalua pork
half of a small cabbage (shredded)
Hawaiian salt
black pepper
sesame oil

1) In a pot or skillet, cook shredded cabbage until soft, about 8 minutes.
2) Add in kalua pork and stir and mix well
3) Drizzle about a tbp of sesame oil and continue to stir fry.
4) Add in a dash of Hawaiian salt (not too much as pork should already be salty), and a dash of black pepper.
5) Serve.

Some people like it alittle wet so the sauce can cover the rice, some people like it drier. Depending on how you like it. If you want it drier, you can use a paper towel to soak up the cabbage water before adding in the kalua pork.

I try to serve this dish quite often as Mr. P loves Hawaiian food. Once in a great while I would even buy lauau, poi, lomi lomi salmon, and poke to make it a hawaiian feast!

I've got no leftovers for lunch the next day. So I packed myself salad and fruits in a Fit N Fresh bowl. Bottom tier contains: lettuce, olives, carrots, and mushrooms; top tier contains: apples, grapes, and sweet juicy korean pear. Added to "What's for Lunch Wednesday"

There is also a baby gift basket giveaway by Good Eats 'n Sweet Treats. Since I don't have any luck what-so-ever in winning, why don't YOU try?
