How to make it

  • Peel the plantains, cut into 2-inch thick legthwise slices, and fry in oil
  • till golden brown. Remove, drain, and keep warm.
  • In a frying pan, saute the onion, green pepper, and garlic until soft but
  • not brown. Add the ground beef and fry at high heat for 3 minutes. Pour in
  • the tomato sauce and add the capers and olives, if desired. Cook 15
  • minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and
  • pepper to taste.
  • Wash the string beans and steam till tender.
  • Beat the eggs, adding salt and pepper to taste. Butter the sides and
  • bottom of a round casserole and melt the remaining butter in the bottom.
  • Pour in *half* of the beaten eggs and cook over medium heat for about 1
  • minute or until slightly set. Cover the eggs with one-third of the
  • plantain slices, following with layers of half the ground meat and half
  • the string beans. Add another layer of plantains, the remainder of the
  • ground beef, another layer of beans, and top with plantains. Pour the rest
  • of the beaten eggs over the top.
  • Cook over low heat for 15 minutes, uncovered, being careful not to let the
  • omelette burn. Then place in a preheated 350-degree oven for 10 to 15
  • minutes to brown the top of the pin~on. Serve with rice and beans.
  • Excellent for lunch.
