Grandmother's Portuguese Vinha d'alhos

Now those of you unfamiliar with Hawaii wouldn't understand the melting pot of cultures that makes Hawaii so special. Myself, I am blended with Hawaiian, Chinese, Portuguese, Welsh, and more. The list goes on and on. This is pretty much the norm, so it is not unusual to have Chinese comfort food for breakfast and Portuguese comfort food for dinner. This post is something special that we would have on Christmas. I loved it so much I started making it all the time. The difference is I made it a one pot meal versus a three day love affair like the traditional recipe calls for. The true test was making this for the "Aunties" of the family and didn't tell them I didn't marinade it for three days in fresh bathes of vinegar and garlic daily. Once they finished eating dinner one night I broke the news to them and they didn't believe me.
