Ingredients (click ingredient to buy it)

  • 400 GRAMS GROUND BEEF LEAN IS BETTER
  • 2 CLOVES OF GARLIC MINCED
  • 1 MEDIUM ONION MINCED
  • 2 SMALL TOMATOES DICED
  • 1/4 CUP RAISINS
  • SALT AND PEPPER TO TASTE
  • OLIVE OIL NOT NECESSARILY EXTRA-VIRGIN
  • 2 SMALL-MEDIUM POTATOES SLICED (I SLICED MINE THINLY)
  • 4 SABA BANANAS SLICED INTO 4
  • 4 EGGS POACHED OR COOK SUNNY-SIDE UP

Instructions

  • PREHEAT OVEN TO 400F DEGREES. PEEL AND SLICE THE SABA BANANA; SLICE THE POTATOES, BRUSH OR TOSSED WITH OLIVE OIL AND SEASON LIGHTLY WITH SALT AND PEPPER AND PUT IT IN THE BAKING SHEET TO BAKE FOR ABOUT 10-15 MINUTES, INVERTING THE BANANAS AND POTATOES TO BROWN THE OTHER SIDE AS WELL.
  • IN A PAN, HEAT ABOUT A TABLESPOON OF OLIVE OIL AND SAUTE THE GARLIC, ONION AND TOMATOES, COOK FOR ABOUT 2 MINUTES; ADD THE GROUND BEEF, SEASON WITH SALT AND PEPPER TO TASTE; ADD RAISINS AND COOK UNTIL BROWNED. SET THIS ASIDE. IF YOU ARE GOING TO FRY THE EGG INSTEAD OF POACHING, YOU MAY USE THE SAME PAN TO COOK THE EGGS.
  • *TO POACH EGGS: IN A DEEP FRYING PAN, HEAT ABOUT A CUP OF WATER TO GENTLE BOIL, ADD SALT AND A LITTLE VINEGAR. BREAK AN EGG IN A SMALL BOWL AND THEN GENTLY SLIDE IT ON THE SIMMERING WATER. DON’T STIR. COOK UNTIL THE EGG IS SET. USE A SLOTTED SPOON TO TAKE THE EGG OUT OF THE PAN.
  • THAT’S ABOUT IT. ARRANGE IT ON PLATE BY MOLDING HOT RICE (WHETHER STEAMED OR FRIED RICE) BY SCOOPING IT IN A CUP AND INVERTING IT ON A PLATE. TOP WITH AN EGG ( POACH OR FRIED).
  • ARRANGE THE COOKED MEAT AROUND THE RICE AND PLACE AN EGG (POACHED OR PAN-FRIED) ON TOP, THEN ARRANGE THE SAUTEED BEEF AROUND THE RICE OR JUST DO YOUR OWN THING WITH IT. SERVE THIS WITH A HOT CUP OF COFFEE.
  • NOTE: YOU CAN ADD A LITTLE TOMATO SAUCE OR ADD MORE WATER IF YOU WANT IT SAUCE-Y.
