Cuban Rice Recipe With Banana
1.- The first thing is to cook the rice. Put the water on a medium heat, with a handful of salt and when it boils, we put the rice inside. It will take about 17-20 minutes to cook, depending on the brand of rice. Until you have absorbed all the water. If past time, you think it has been a bit hard, you can put out the fire and cover the container. Residual heat and steam will finish cooking the rice.
2.- While cooking the rice, prepare the banana. Put the tablespoon of butter in a frying pan and melt over medium heat. Eye with the firepower that the butter becomes denatured and burns very easily! Once it is undone and has begun to smoke a little, we introduce the banana. I put it split in half, along.We will cook it on low heat for about 4 minutes on each side. Until we see that it is soft and well cooked. Once this is done, we remove the banana.
3. Now, we cook the egg. I like to do it in the same butter, where we had made the banana. So, on medium heat, put the egg and let it cook. It will take about 3 minutes to be ready. If you prefer to fry it, add plenty of olive oil, heat to a high heat and cook at 30 seconds.
4.- Finally we put the rice to the Cuban one. Put the rice in a dish, put it well tomato sauce over, then we put the bananas and the egg. And it will be ready! An easy cooking recipe where you have them.
As I said before, there are numerous ingredients that can be added to Cuban rice, from garlic, to spices … I know people who throw even sausages.
