"I first had this served over egg noodles, but served with rice is just as nice. This recipe was introduced to me by a Cuban friend when I was seven years old. To this day, (twenty years later), it remains one of my favourites. Don't be frightened by this seemingly strange combination of ingredients; this is brilliant! The nice thing about this recipe is that it doesn't require any measurements. You use an equal amount of each ingredient, so it's infinitely scalable!"

I have made this many times, except that I use plantains instead of bananas. Also, I add cumin, oregano and bay leaf (in Venezuela we get it in piowder form).

Born & bred in Miami, I was skeptical about this dish, even as I served it up. HOWEVER, with just slight tweaking, my family and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Tweaks: added cumin (a must for authentic cuban flavor), used 3 (10oz) cans of Rotel diced tomatoes. Also, my bananas were slightly green. Yum-a-licious, seriously! The tweaks kept me from giving this a 5* review...

I'm always looking for new ways to cook pork and this was easy and delicious. Nothing needed to be changed - I made minor ones - used Goya seasoning to season the meat before cooking and again at the end in place of the salt and pepper. I also had some leftover canned corn which I added. I cut the meat into bite sized pieces, therefore, 20 min. of cooking time was plenty - it would have been dried out if I had done 30 min. I served it over rice but the next time I'n going to serve it by itself (it is filling) and put out some crusty bread with butter. Thanks submitter.
