Step 1

Thaw the lau lau package in the refrigerator, if frozen. This might take 24 hours. Place the package in a bowl to catch any liquid dripping.

Step 2

Fill the bottom of a steam bucket with water just below the level of the basket. Boil the water on high.

Step 3

Place the lau laus in the basket. Set the basket in the pot and cover with a lid.

Step 4

Steam the lau laus until done. If the lau lau is thawed, this should take about 30 minutes.

Step 5

Remove the packets and unwrap them. You don't eat the ti leaves, but everything else is edible.
