Lau Lau Ingredients

- 30 luau leaves
- 6 ti leaves
- 1 pound pork, cut into 6 pieces
- 1/4 pound salted butterfish, cut into 6 pieces
- 6 pieces of boneless chicken
- 1-1/2 teaspoons Hawaiian sea salt
- Toothpicks or rubber bands.

Lau Lau Instructions

Wash the luau leaves and ti leaves and remove all stems and fibrous veins.

Divide the pork, fish, and chicken into 6 equal bundles, where each bundle has all three items.

Layer 5 luau leaves and place them on top of one of the chicken/pork/fish bundles. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and wrap the luau leaves around the bundle.

Place the luau-leaf-wrapped bundle on one end of a ti leaf. Wrap the ti leaf tightly around the bundle and secure it with a toothpick or rubber band. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 6 bundles.

Bring water to a boil in a steamer. Steam the lau lau over low heat for 6 hours, or until all of the meat, poultry, and fish are tender.
