Video: How to Make Lau Lau with Kimi Werner

I had the honor of going beaver trapping in Montana with Steve Rinella. So to celebrate that unique experience, I decided to incorporate beaver meat into the classic Hawaiian soul food, lau lau.

Lau lau is a surf n turf bundle of goodness usually consisting of pork and salted butterfish, all steamed and pressure-cooked to perfection.

The flavors melt together between layers of kalo leaves and the beaver meat was exceptionally savory and delicious in this recipe. Along with enjoying every tender bite, I also found myself happily reliving a Hawaii-Montana fusion of passions while feeling grateful for the gifts received from the land, rivers, and ocean.
