How to make it

  • Pour the olive oil in a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat. Add the first set of ingredients Saute for about five minutes.
  • Stir the ground meat into the ingredients already in the saucepan. Cook for about ten minutes. Add the raisins. Continue to cook for another ten minutes or until the meat is cooked but not dry. You may want to remove the bay leaves at this time.
  • Slice the plantains lengthwise. Use a separate saucepan to fry the plantain slices over medium heat in two tablespoonfuls of olive oil. Remove from the saucepan. Wipe excess oil with paper napkings.
  • Use a deep square baking pan. Grease thoroughly with about half of the melted butter. Cover the bottom of the pan with a row of plantains. Add enough of the cooked meat to make a layer, following the style for preparing lasagna. Alternate rows of plantains and meat until both are used up.
  • Pour the remaining melted butter over the pie. Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese.

    My husband and I found a great family restaurant in Old San Juan a couple of years ago. We have been back a few times and it is traditional and they treated us like family. We fell in love with the food and the island.
