This is a delicious green plantain hash recipe my sister brought back from Costa Rica. It's best served as a vegetable or on a hot tortilla as a boca.

This hit the spot!! I decided to double the recipe (all expcept the plantains) so I can use all the ground beef. It didn't seem like it was enough beef but then the title did say "Platano". Next time, I use more plantains. I can see why the previous poster added bell peppers and cumin. I think I will try that next time. Don't skimp on the cilantro, in fact, add a little more. Cilantro really brings out the flavors in this dish. I will certainly try this again, maybe serve it with white rice.

Delicious!! I was so happy to see this here! I grew up with this dish but never learned how to make it. I followed it to the tee, just replaced worshtire sauce with SALSA LIZANO from Costa Rica. Nothing but raves when I make this!!! Thank you!!
