Arroz a la Cubana

This Arroz a la Cubana Recipe will produce a nice tasting ground meat dish that goes well with bananas and egg. Arroz a la Cubana can be eaten as a heavy breakfast (and I really mean heavy because you have both bananas and rice) or lunch. You can try to have this for dinner, but you will need to delay your sleep time for a couple of hours or wait until the food is fully digested, at least.
