Had dinner at the Tonga Hut Palm Springs on Saturday, you should go as soon as you get a chance. I ordered Chef Sherman Chan's Kalua Pork - I expected shredded pork as it is usually served, but was surprised to get a couple of large chunks instead. It was delicious, tender and juicy with just enough sweetness in the glaze and a hint of Chinese Five Spice. I decided to try an "inspired" version. I took a 4 pound pork loin and cut it into 8 portions. I dropped it in the Crock Pot on low for 10 hours with a bottle of Spicy Hawaiian Mango marinade. Then I carefully pulled the braised chunks out and placed them on a cookie sheet. I sprinkled a little Five Spice on and brushed them with bottled Honey Teriyaki, stuck them in a 350 oven until the glaze started to caramelize (about 10-15 minutes) and then garnished them with a little toasted sesame seed.

Turned out excellent (not as good as the Tonga Hut of course ) Elegant and very easy, total hand-on time was probably only 15 minute, a nice addition to the Tiki Food repertoire
