    Pinaygourmet #345142's Note:

    We do not know whether or not this dish is originally from Cuba. We can only assume that this dish was introduced to the Philippines by the Spaniards. “Arroz” means rice. Arroz a la Cubana is basically a stew using ground beef instead of chunks, and served with fried egg (sunny side up!), slices of fried saba bananas and steamed or boiled rice. Saba banana has thick yellow-brownish skin and is never eaten raw. It can be boiled or steamed in its skin, peeling it just before eating. This humble banana can be transformed to a numberof simple yet amazing and nutritious desserts. For your convenience, use plantain similar to one used in Carribean cuisine. Serve with plain boiled rice.
