THIS IS A HAWAIIAN DISH CALLED "LONG RICE."
when ann & i stayed on the north shore of oahu for a week a couple of years ago, i made every effort to try specifically indigenous dishes of the islands: loco moco, poi, poke, lomi lomi salmon, kalua pig. long rice is the simplest of all of them to prepare. long rice is actually cellophane noodles cut into short lengths(after soaking)& served w/whatever you've got handy. in this dish, i used pork loin & two fresh chilis & two dried chilis for spiciness. ann got a chili buzz from eating a plateful.
