  1. Another thing. The authentic Cuban recipe does NOT contain either beer or tomatoes. That is an abomination.
  2. good recipe, too much tomato sauce. I will make this again but eliminate the tomato sauce completely. Also the recipe does not indicate how much apple cider vinegar to use, so I used a tablespoon.
  3. Tasty & relatively quick to pull together. Decided to make it with broth - felt like that way the sofrito flavors were nice and bright. Found the original recipe online - you should only use a drizzle of the apple cider vinegar.
  4. Fantastic recipe, the person that said the beer overpowered the dish was right, so I cut it back to 1/2 cup, still a bit much, next time i will go 1/4 cup. Over all great dish. Thanks for posting it.
  5. for a different taste from another part that is not mexican dishes only... try it taste way better then the other rices.. from Mexico please add more reciepes from others South American countries people think we are all about tacos or burritos and we have a very rich heritage of all kinds of carribeen, and Latin plates.. thanks


  1. This was okay, but my husband and I thought the beer really drowned out the lovely taste of the sofrito sauce (I recommend making a real sofrito sauce with oregano, tomato sauce, etc., rather than just blending onion, garlic, bell pepper, & cilantro). This recipe might have been better with broth instead of beer. Also, it was frustrating to not be given a measurement for the vinegar.
