Funny yeah . . . "Wendell's Lau Lau, betta den poi, betta den pig" . . . actually I should call it "Wendell's Huge Crockpot Lau Lau". He found the recipe at Hawaii Holiday Blog. Sprinkle 3/4 tbs. red Hawaiian sea salt onto cut up pork butt. I don't know how big the pork butt was and he's not home right now for me to ask. How about medium-sized pork butt?

You can read all about the origins of Lau…
