Most everyday type of puertorican meals are some type of rice as the side. Sometimes we put the protein in the rice and cook it 🙂 For puertoricans, rice is a staple like italians have their pasta, and americans favor potato dishes. Rice and beans is technically a complete meal. The rice is the carb and the beans are the protein, but most puertoricans treat it like a side dish. We need a meat with our rice!
Bistec encebollado is our version of steak and onions. We use vinegar to tenderize the meat and cook it over low heat. There are two versions of this dish, with and without tomato sauce. I prefer without tomato sauce.
