My Hawaiian neighbor made this and brought over a container full for my family. It is soooo good so she wrote down how she makes it. I am adding it here for safe keeping. :) The prep directions are the same whether you are cooking it in the stove or crock pot. This is so incredibly simple but the finished product is so yummy. Enjoy! :)
