This is mother. Thanks mom for cooking for us again. Mom, do you make kalua cabbage a lot back home? I sure do. Everyone loves this dish. It’s not that difficult to make is it? Not at all. It’s actually super easy. Usually Kalua Pork is really complicated to make. It’s a traditional Hawaiian dish. This version is simplified so anyone can make them. Adding cabbage makes it even better. Right mom? That is correct. So let’s start with the ingredients. We first need pork. 1 pound of pork. You need salt. Hawaiian Salt is preferred. But regular sea salt is fine too. You might not find Hawaiian Salt in your area. Next is cabbage. As much as you want. Let’s rub the salt into the meat like this. Again, if you don’t Hawaiian salt, just use regular salt. Make sure to rub it in well. You want the salt to permeate the meat. This is important. You can freeze leftovers too. Oh, I see! We’ll let this sit for about 30 minutes. It’s been 30 minutes. Mom, the meat is starting to sweat. Yes, let’s wipe the excess water off the meat. I’m surprised at how much moisture comes out. Once again, add a little more salt. All we do now is put it in the oven. How long do we cook it in the oven? 40 minutes minimum. Preferably 3-6 hours. 200C (400F) in the oven. 40 minutes minimum. Longer is better. Here it is mom. Cabbage is so good with kalua pork. Let’s put more in dear. Just cut it any way you like right? No need to cut it in a special way here. Time to shred the meat. I’m going to use my hands. I usually cook it longer so it comes apart easier But we’re going to cook it again with the cabbage. Ok, looks like we’re done here. This is fine I think. No oil needed dear. Right. Anymore and it’ll be too oily! Smells good doesn’t it? It sure does! If you want you can add some garlic. My mother likes some crispy areas so she cooks it well. Yes, it’s delicious that way. Remember don’t add additional oil. I can see the meat crisping up. The Kalua Cabbage is done! It looks so good! It sure does! It really does look good. Mom you get the red chopsticks. Thank you. Satoshi gets the masculine one. I’ll use these green ones. Let’s dig in! Smells heavenly! I agree mom. It smells great! It looks good! YUM! It’s really good! YUMMY Don’t you think it’s good mom? Not even kidding! How’s the seasoning? I think it’s perfect! I know right? You don’t want to add anything else. This will go well with hot rice. I want some rice right now. Like my mom said before, you can make this into a sandwich. What else… Make a kalua cabbage rice bowl. Or just eat it like this. It’ll go good with alcohol too. Beer, beer, beer! Beer beer beer! Yeah, that would be awesome! I can’t stop eating this! Want more mom? I’m ok right now dear. Better than I expected actually. Mom, this will be the last video you’ll be doing. You will be going back to Hawaii. You leave this week already. I’m kind of sad but mom please stay healthy and happy. Thank you so much. Thank you for making so many delicious dishes for us. Thank you so much everybody for your hospitality. Thank you so much. Mom, it’s been so much fun. Yes it has! Last year you cooked for us just once. You made us spam musubi. You really didn’t want to be on camera back then. This year you were here for 2 months. You spent most of your time writing down recipes Usually my mom spends her time reading novels This year she was doing recipe research. Trying to figure out what to make next. She tried to remember all her old recipes. Wrote it down and planned for us. This year you worked hard mother. She has read every single comment too! She reads your comments everyday! Like every single day. Thank you all! Thank you! I’ll be back next year everybody. Hmm….I wonder if I’ll be healthy enough to come again? Oh mom, of course you will! Mom is healthier than anyone here! The healthiest in this group at least. Seriously! Thank you!
