Lalo Haitian Food


0.6 lbs of Smoked Pork
0.6 lbs of Stew Beef
2-4 Blue Crabs
5 Cups of Gran Pan-Pan Lalo (finely chopped)
1 Pack (6 oz.) Fresh Spinach (finely chopped)
1 ⅓ Cups Oil
1 tbsp of Cooking Margarine
½ tsp of Salt
1 Bouillon Cube
3 Sprigs of Thyme
1 Hot Pepper
½ tsp of Sea Salt
½ tsp of Garlic Powder
½ tsp of Onion Powder
½ tsp of Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp of Blended Herbs (salt free)
½ tsp of Clove Powder
2 tbsp of Sour Orange Juice
1 tbsp of Lime Juice


    Step 1

    Grab a large bowl and fill it up with water. Place the dried jute leaves(lalo) into the bowl and let them soak in it overnight. Drain the water out of the bowl by using a strainer in the sink. Dump the leaves into a new bowl.

      Step 2

      Remove the fat from the beef and pork. Prepare to clean the two meats by rubbing the halves of the lime over them. Remember that this is how Haitians clean their meats. Rinse them off with cold water after you’ve cleaned them with the lime.

        Step 3

        Now you must clean the blue crabs. You can start by taking off the backs of the crabs, followed by the removal of their mouths, guts, and gills. If you see any dirt on the crabs, scrape it off completely. After you’ve done that, you can proceed to clean the crabs by rubbing the halves of the lime over them. Rinse the crabs with cold water when you’re done.

          Step 4

          Grab a medium bowl and put it on the counter. Put the beef, pork, and crab meats into the bowl. Add the sour orange juice, lime, dried spices and epis to the bowl. Stir all the ingredients together. Leave the bowl alone for at least 60 minutes or more.
