Ali'i Mushroom Smoke Meat

Smoke meat is a staple in my house and it's an all around local favorite - chances are you will find this dish at most parties and gatherings everywhere in Hawai'i!

With this dish, it's all about the smoky flavor of the pork that is first marinated and then smoked in a smokehouse for hours at a time. For our smoker, we use kiawe wood to give the pork that rich, mesquite flavor.

For this recipe, I added a little bit of a twist. Typically people like to add onions to enhance the dish and to provide a crunchy texture. But what about mushrooms? Ali'i Mushrooms, that is! The heartiness and mild flavor of the Ali'i Mushrooms provides a different element to the smoke meat while complimenting - not masking - the protein's flavor. Plus, if you already have smoked meat prepared, this recipe is super simple and will take no more than 15-minutes to make!

*Note: smoked meat is still fairly raw after leaving the smoker. You will need to cook meat thoroughly before consuming. Thus, follow the recipe below!




-2 lbs Smoked Pork (sliced)

-2 cups Ali'i Mushrooms (sliced)
