Cuban rice stuff
Monday, May 19, 2014
Uncle Max made this once a long time ago and I always remembered how good it was. The other day I looked up how to do it.
The basics of it is a pile of rice, with an over-easy egg in the middle of it. You put a slice of fried ham (or whatever lunch meat you have around). Then you put the tomato sauce over it all. The sauce is called Sofrito apparently.
· 1 can of crushed tomatoes. (We only ever have diced so I crush my own)
· 1 green pepper
· 1 onion
· 2-3 cloves garlic
· 1 tsp (or more) Paprika
· Salt and pepper
Saute the pepper, onions, garlic in olive oil. Add the tomatoes. Season with the paprika, salt and pepper. Pour the sauce over your rice and egg, top it with the meat. It sounds weird, but its really good.
