Cooking Laing (Taro leaves)

This Laing recipe or Bicol laing is a dish indigenous to the Bicol province. Rich and creamy, it's made from dried taro or gabi leaves and coconut milk. In the Philippines, we would buy fresh gabi leaves, separate the leaves from the stalks and dry the leaves under the sun for a couple of hours before we can use them.

Drying takes out the uncomfortable palate texture or kati the taro leaves give when you eat them.

The most practical and convenient way to go about this is to buy the packaged dried taro leaves.

Available in Asian markets, they're ready to use and just reconstituted with the coconut milk during cooking.

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 cups Dried Taro Leaves
  • 1/2 pound Pork loin or shoulders, boiled and cut in strips
  • 2 cans Coconut Milk
  • 1 piece Long Chili Peppers, cut in strips
