Jibarito Sandwich

When I lived back in Florida there was this little Puerto Rican restaurant that had “El Jibarito” sandwich.  It was delicious and one of Hubby’s favorites.  It is a steak sandwich between two huge tostones, which are fried plantains.  After church yesterday I was trying to figure out what to make for lunch and this popped into my head.  

Jibaro is a term that refers to the people of Puerto Rico that lived in the heart of the island.  They were the backbone of agriculture in Puerto Rico, working sugar cane and coffee fields. 

Is this “good” for you…..no.  Is is delicious….YES!  I mean look at it, I know you want to eat it.   

Here is the ingredient list:

Jibarito Sandwich
1 green plantain
4 inch portion of skirt steak
1/2 large onion
3 cloves of garlic
1 cup mojo
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil
1 Tbs vinegar
1 bay leaf
12 peppercorns
1 Tbs ketchup
1 Tbs mayonnaise
Lettuce & tomato 

Get yourself some yummy skirt steak.  Stab it savagely a few times with a fork to tenderize it.

Put it into a Ziploc bag with 1 cup of Mojo and let it marinade, set aside.  You can find pre-made mojo marinade at you local Latin grocery.

IMG_2523

Get yourself an onion and 3 cloves of garlic.

IMG_2525

Slice 1/2 an onion.

IMG_2526

Crush 3 cloves of garlic.  Crush them with the skins on, they come right off after they are crushed.

IMG_2529

Get 3/4 cup of water, 1/4 cup of olive oil and 1 Tbs of vinegar.

IMG_2534

Pour into a hot pan.

IMG_2535

Now add garlic, onions, 1 bay leaf and 12 pepper corns.

 

IMG_2537  IMG_2538   IMG_2540  IMG_2539

Oh and don’t forget a pinch of salt.   Let it come to a boil, turn down the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.  Remove from heat, set aside. 

IMG_2542

Fill a large deep skillet with vegetable oil.  Fill it enough to were your plantains will be almost submerged.

Peel your plantains and cut them in half at and angle.  If you want a thinner crispier plantain, you can cut it long ways.  You will just have a narrower sandwich.

IMG_2546

Drop them into the oil and let them fry until golden.  

IMG_2548

Remove the plantain from the oil.

IMG_2553

Take a heavy pan and mash the plantain.

IMG_2554

See mashed plantain.   Squish….squish…. :D

IMG_2555

Return the plantains to the oil.   Fry until golden brown and crispy on the edges.  Be careful not to burn.  When done transfer to a plate lined with paper towel to drain, sprinkle with salt.  Do not forget the salt.

IMG_2557

In a small bowl or cup, combine 1 Tbs of mayonnaise and 1 Tbs of ketchup.

IMG_2563

While I was frying the plantains Hubby grilled the steaks.  He was done before I was able to get a shot.  

IMG_2560

Make your sandwich.  Spread the mayo-ketchup spread on the plantains, layer steak, onion mixture, lettuce and tomatoes.

IMG_2566  IMG_2567  IMG_2570  IMG_2572

Top your sandwich with the other plantain, slice in half and enjoy.

IMG_2574

This sandwich is delicious and messy.  Be sure to have a roll of paper towel.  Eating this sandwich will produce sticky fingers and licking of your forearm.

ENJOY!
