FTF #102: Arroz a la cubana

According to Wikipedia, Arroz a la cubana is a Spanish dish consisting of rice, a fried egg and tomato sauce. It is served with sunny side up egg and plantain banana (saba).

Here is my own version of Arroz a la cubana using only tomato instead of tomato sauce.

1/2 kilo beef
1 pc carrot, cut into small cubes
two tomatoes, cut into small cubes
2 tbsp raisins
1 bell pepper
1 onion
minced garlic
2 tbsp olive oil

Saute garlic, onion. Add the beef, tomato, bell pepper and raisins. Season with salt and pepper
Serve with fried cooked sunny side up and plantain banana (saba)

FTF #101: Spicy Tomato and Cream

This is an easy recipe using Spicy Tomato & Cream from Del Monte. We always include at least five packs of different gourmet sauces in our grocery cart  for easy cooking, when we crave for pasta or when I couldn’t think of  any snack for my kids  after  school.

Prepare pasta, usually it takes only 12 to 15 minutes. Make sure it is ‘Al Dente’ or firm.

Sautee garlic, onion (optional, you can just reheat the sauce)   tuna chunks or flakes and Del Monte Spicy Tomato & Cream. Easy right?  Add olives. (optional) Serve with cheese  and you’re done. Yummy!

FTF #100: A Taste of Racks

We were looking around a place where to eat after the Good Housekeeping seminar and found a place where my children pointed me to.  I frequent Racks Restaurant when I was still working in Makati and used to lunch out together with my office mates.  After so many years, the classic pork  ribs is still as tender and flavorful at it was. Nothing really changed, well except of course,  the price.
