So you're either saying "What the heck are laulaus" or "OMG! Laulaus!"
Laulaus are classic Luau food. Lau means leaf, laulau is leaf leaf. Mine pictured here are taroleaf wrapped pork, then wrapped in banana leaf to keep the package together.
Kalua pork is another Hawaiian delicacy. I wrap pork in banana leaf to keep it together and flavor it a bit.
All are put into deep steamers - like you would use for steaming clams - with water and a teaspoon of liquid smoke.
Bake 300 degrees for 4-6 hours and you have some totally onolicious food! (Ono is the Hawaiian word for tasty).
Served with Japanese sticky rice and a side of mac salad, lomilomi salmon, and poi, and you have a contemporary classic hawaiian feast!
WLG - can you top that?
