Cuban Classic


Would try this again Carla, but can't easily get plantains here in Norfolk.

  1. Heat oil in pan until quite hot. Add plantains and onions at the same time.
  2. Do not stir. Let cook for at least one minute before flipping the plantains and onions.
  3. Now let sit again without flipping for at least one minute...this browns the sides of each plantain slice, giving it a toasty edge and firming up the shape for the stirring part.
  4. Now reduce the heat and stir softly until all the flavours are well blended.

Serving suggestions
