This week on Sam Choy’s Kitchen we invite Office of Hawaiian Affairs trustee Rowena Akana to prepare this special Portuguese dish.


* 5 pounds pork butt
* 5 pounds meat for roasting (any type of roast)
* Hawaiian salt
* 3 tablespoons minced garlic
* 3 to 4 cups of white vinegar
* water (2 cups of water for every 1 cup of vinegar)
* whole baked potatoes, unskinned
* whole carrots, unpeeled
* chili pepper

Rub Hawaiian salt into the meat. Massage garlic into the meat. Add 3 to 4 cups of vinegar and 2 cups of water for every cup of vinegar used. Add vegetables and marinate overnight in a deep pot while turning meat every so often. Remove vegetables before baking meat. Bake meat at 350 degrees for about 1 1/2 hours. Add potatoes and carrots after first hour of cooking. Use gravy from the marinade to continue to baste meat.

Slice meat and serve warm with hot vegetables.
