Today’s Recipe: Laing

Sharing with you all another coconut based dish that’s a Filipino favorite, Laing (dried taro leaves).

Here’s wachunid:

A can of coconut milk, a can of coconut cream (not in photo), a can of all purpose cream (optional), a pack (I only used half) of dried taro leaves, 1/4 kilo of pork belly (menudo cut is fine), 1/2 cup bagoong (shrimp paste), 3 cloves garlic (diced), 1 medium sized onion (chopped), 2 tbsp. ginger (thinly sliced), 3-4 pieces red chili (chopped).

Step 1: Sauté garlic and onion, ginger in 1 tbsp. oil, add pork and cook for 5 minutes.

Step 2: Add the shrimp paste, coconut milk and coconut cream. Bring to boil.

Step 3: Add the dried taro leaves and red chili. Simmer until the sauce almost dries up.


Yummy Laing.

That’s all!

    Bookmarked! I LOVE laing! Bummer lang, I recently became allergic to shrimp, so no bagoong for me. :( Wonder what I can substitute?

    • jackiego

    Thanks for the recipe Ms. Jackie. You know what, my bf of 4 yrs was jokingly saying that he thinks he will be the one who’ll cook for our meal when we get married because I don’t have much skills in cooking. Laying out your recipes and ingredients makes me want to learn and practice cooking more. You’re recipes are simple and ingredients are easy to find. :)

    Hi again Ms. Jackie! Was supposed to try it over the weekend but since we had most of the ingredients at home and my MIL brought taro leaves, we cooked it kanina. Baon ko siya sa office and it was good. Aside from the bagoong, I also added shredded daing para may laman ng konti.

    Next stop, your Garlic Lime Chicken…

    More recipe posts please =)

  • Carmela Vergara

    Hello. Thanks for the recipe. Gonna try on the weekend. You don’t wash the dried leaves or soak in water first?


    • jackiego

      Hi Carmela, I washed the leaves first but didn’t soak in water. Hope this helps! Good luck on your cooking :)
