Beef Luau


3 pounds stew meat
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 large onion, chopped
4 quarts water
2 pounds luau (taro leaves)
2 Tbsp Hawaiian salt, divided
Dash of baking soda


In a large pot, brown the meat with the garlic. Stir in the onions; cook until onions are transparent. Then add 2 quarts of the water. Bring to a boil, lower heat, and cook for 1 & 1/2 hours or until meat is tender. Wash the luau leaves thoroughly; break off stems and remove fibrous part of stems and veins. Put the stems and leaves into a saucepan. Add the remaining 2 quarts water, 1 tablespoon of the Hawaiian salt, and the baking soda. Cook until the luau leaves are tender,  for about 30 to 45 minutes; drain. Stir and add the remaining 1 tablespoon salt into meat mixture. Cook 10 more minutes. Enjoy!
