Rub a generous amount of hav salt (sea/rock salt) onto all sides of the pork. In Hawaiian "lomi lomi" means to massage. Lomi lomi the pork with salt, don't be shy!

Place aluminum-wrapped pork in oven-safe dish. I like using disposable aluminum pans to take with to a party. Easier to clean up!

Bake in 190•C oven for 2 hours, then turn temperature down to 160•C for 2 more hours. Be careful when opening foil, hot steam! The smell is AMAZING while this cooks!

With two forks, gently pull apart the tender pork. There should be plenty of juices in the pan to mix it with. Continue until all the pork is shredded.
