    ace7455 #2's Note:

    This is a recipe from the Luau restaurant in Memphis TN from the 60's&70's. The Luau was a polynesian restraunt with a tropical themed decor. Think Mai Tai's and cheesy Hawaiian boxed in music. But to us Memphians and the yearly prom goers, it was an escape! Anyway this dish is easy and so soul satisfying.

      This was good, although I found the sauce quite bland. I added one Tbsp. of tomato paste and that really upped the flavor. Thanks for sharing! Made for Spring PAC 2013

      We LOVED going to the Luau when we were in high school. I still have a couple of the hollowed-out coconuts that they served their ice cream in! If I remember correctly, the correct name of the sauce was "Heavenly Sauce".
