“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.” - by Esther
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- Simmer the plantain pieces in salted water over medium-high heat until tender. Once tender, drain, and allow to cool, then finely chop.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the beef, garlic, and onion, season with salt and pepper. Cook until the beef is crumbly and the onion is soft. Stir in the chopped plantain, cilantro, and tomato. Season with Worcestershire sauce and hot pepper sauce; cook for about 10 minutes until everything is hot.

"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,..." See more 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. Nothi..." See moreng but raves when I make this!!! Thank you!!"
