HOW TO COOK A PIG, KALUA STYLE

Friday, February 19, 2016

Kalua is a traditional Hawaiian cooking method that utilizes an imu, a type of underground oven. The word kalua, which literally means “to cook in an underground oven,” may also be used to describe the food cooked in this manner, such as kalua pig or kalua turkey, which are commonly served at luau feasts.

The traditional luau was eaten on the floor over lauhala (leaves of the hala tree were weaved together) mats.
