From the moment the idea of making Povi Masima entered my mind...I was already drooling during the thought process (hahaha). You see, Povi Masima is an all-time favorite of Samoa. It's made with Corned Beef Brisket and cabbage. Another way is to use Salt Beef. At first, I wanted to make this recipe with the Salt beef; However, it requires boiling the meat and draining it to boil again. The reason is to rid the salt content in the meat; Therefore, it takes hours to do on the stovetop.
So, since this is a blog about crock-pot recipes, I couldn't do it. I needed to improvise and use the Corned Beef Brisket instead. Although, it shares the similarities of taste...the Salt Beef has more fat which gives added flavor to the Povi Masima. Now I'm here in the kitchen with my ingredients (which will crack you up when you see it.) and ready to get crockin. ( :
