    Pinaygourmet #345142's Note:

    Laing is the quintessential Bicolano dish, fiery hot and absolutely delicious though it can an acquired taste to the Western palate. This is one of my favourite Filipino comfort food. My Dad makes the most awesome version I should say. I am modifying it to suit the availability of ingredients. Be sure to use thick coconut milk, the light version will not work at all. Cooking time is about an hour and a half.
