Things You'll Need

  • Keoki's pork or chicken lau lau

  • Bowl

  • Steam pot

  • Water

  • Stove


  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.
  2. Fill the bottom of a steam bucket with water just below the level of the basket.
  3. Boil the water on high.
  4. Place the lau laus in the basket. Set the basket in the pot and cover with a lid.
  5. Steam the lau laus until done. If the lau lau is thawed, this should be about 30 minutes.
  6. Remove the packets and unwrap them. You don't eat the ti leaves, but everything else is edible.


Keoki's lau laus stay fresh for up to 10 days in the refrigerator and two months in the freezer.
