    Aloha Shoyu Is The Official Shoyu of Cooking Hawaiian Style


Beef With Bittermelon

Bittermelon is not something we used in home cooked dishes, you would only find it in your favorite Chinese restaurant, but lately a lot of the local farms have been making it readily available in the markets. This dish works well with pork or chicken as well.
