Arroz Tapado (Rice on top)
2 cups water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup rice
I set to water, olive oil & salt to boil and added the rice. Boil until tender and the water is absorbed.
In a separate pan I cook throughly
1/2 pound of ground beef
1/4 pound of mild sausage.
Add in onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, black pepper.
When the meat is cooked add in veggies.
I used broccoli and yellow & orange carrots. (peas, beans & corn can also be used.) Also add 1 tablespoon of peanut butter. (Don't be scared, its delicious. Unless you are allergic. Then please omit this step.)
To stack the rice & meat I used an 8 ounce plastic container. (It was a small sour cream container.) I put a few drops of olive oil into the container & moved it around to coat the bottom & the edges.
I then put a layer of rice & pressed it down. Then a layer of meat & press. Lastly a layer of rice again & compressed it down. I put a plate on top of the container & flipped. The container will lift right off.
I served with sauteed asparagus.
