We love to get experimental with plantain (yum!!). This is so irresistible.
- 5 pcs plantain
- 3 pcs garlic cloves
- 1 pc onion
- 1 pc green pepper
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 2 pinches paprika
- 2 tbsps tomato paste
- 900 grams beef minced meat
- 1 cup green olives
- 2 pinches salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tbsps tomato sauce
- 1 pc seasoning cube
- 1 cup green beans
- 4 pcs eggs
- 4 tbsps vegetable oil
- 2 tbsps unsalted butter
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Peel the plantain and slice lengthwise. Fry until
golden brown. Set aside. Chop ½ of the onions, green pepper and slice
the olives to fill 4 tablespoons and green beans to fill 1 cup. Beat the
eggs. Set aside.
3. Place another frying pan on medium heat. Pour in 2
teaspoon olive oil to heat up. Add in minced meat and allow to brown
and mix with ½ onion (chopped), crushed garlic, oregano, cumin, paprika,
black pepper and salt (optional). Stir contents and then add the tomato
paste, tomato sauce, olives and seasoning cubes. Allow to cook for
about 10 minutes.
4. Grease a 9″ x 13″ baking dish with butter and
then pour ½ of the beaten eggs. Place plantain over the eggs to cover
the dish lengthwise with no space in between, then about 1/3 of the meat
sauce to cover, then green beans. Repeat the layer twice and top off
with a layer of plantain and then pour over remaining beaten eggs.
5. Bake for about 30 minutes. Allow to stand for a few minutes before serving.
