Yum! Couldn't resist adding tomato paste and water, just a Puerto Rican habit, I guess. Otherwise, I kept the recipe the same and it was very easy and delicious!
As a Puerto Rican have to say that his rice looks to pale. Tomato paste or sauce its needed it. So next time add a some salsa, we Puerto Ricans loooooove Salsa!!!!
Good recipe to accompany the Pernil recipe I recently got off of Zaar. Thanks.
