"Cut and Pasted" from the other forum.
Compliments to poster for posting this.
this recipe may vary in taste and amount and depends entirely on the cooks taste and type or produce used.

ok here it is:

tako - as much as u like
best beer
luau leaves - 2 bag up to 6lbs+
baking soda
rock salt
coconut milk - 2 cans

2 big pots (one for tako and a tall one for luau leaves)
ladle or really big spoon

directions for tako:
-take the tako out and defrost then lomi the tako with the regular salt till all the slime is off.
-next rinse tako off and put aside for boil.
-then fill pot up with beer and water till you think tako will be submerge, and put on high heat till water starts to boil.
-when boilling turn the heat down to med heat and place the tako in and boil for 1 to 1 1/2 hour or till u can break a leg off with tongs or when tender.
-remove tako from pot and let cool then remove skin and suckers off legs and cut into peices about 1/2 to 1 inch sizes and put aside.

directions for luau leaves:
-remove luau leaves from bag and soak in water in sink to remove and remaining dirt on leaves.
-grab a bunch of leaves and rinse by holding leaves by the stem and cutting of the ends of the stems.
-chop across leaves making strips about 1/4 inch and placing them in the tall pot.( this will make it easier to cook down leaves)
-chop all leaves and fill pot.
-then add 1 teaspoon full of baking soda
-2 tablespoons of rock salt or small hand full
-2 tablespoons of aji-no-moto
-and fill half way with water and boil down leaves on high for about 4-5 hours (yes it takes that long )
-stir occasionally and if need more water just add alittle at a time to boil down.
-when boiled down it should have the consistancy of watery mashed potatoes and shouldnt have too much stem peices showing.
-add 4 tablespoons of sugar (or to cooks liking).
-add one can of coconut milk and then taste if too bitter then add slowly the second can of coconut milk in increments and all the while tasting to adjust to cooks liking( but if too coconuty taste then just add a dash of salt to off set taste).
-lastly add in tako and stir in.(simmer for 5 min.and serve)

ok people thats it hope u all like my recipe and there is always room for adjustment and enjoy i told u it would take forever.
total cook time 6 1/2 hours
