Povi Masima is salted beef brisket, or corned beef, and you'll see it throughout Oahu Market.

While corned beef is enjoyed the world over -- and especially on rye with mustard in cities like New York or Montreal -- in Hawaii povi masima tends to be featured in dishes that are more Polynesian -- often prepared with taro leaves, or as the basis for Samoan chop suey. Find recipes in the Ethnic Foods of Hawaii cookbook.
