This is a type of Puerto Rican sandwich that is missing the bread! Fried green plantains replace the bread and are used to sandwich a tasty stack of steak, cheese, tomato and lettuce, all spiced with garlic, cumin and oregano.
Born and raised in Chicago as a Puerto Rican, we enjoy these with thick slices of cooked pork (Jamon) instead of steak. My personal addition is a slice of avacado. This is a very easy and special traditional meal. When preparing to take out...wrap each sandwich individually in foil to help keep ingredients together...but best fresh and hot! YUM!!! - 18 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
¡Qué Rico! I LOVE these sandwiches. They make you happy when you make them and eat them...at least they do in our house. I always made mine with chicken, but the skirt steak is excellente! - 07 Sep 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I don't get it....I did not like this at all. The parts of the dish don't blend well. I also thought the directions were lacking at times. - 14 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
