I have been looking forward to making this for a while! I pinned it about a month ago from Baltic Maid - not sure how I found it in the first place? But Thank you Baltic Maid for creating/ posting this! Always looking for different things to make with ground beef, since we do have like a hundred pounds of it in the freezer :)
I bought the plantains over a week ago - the store only had green ones so I had to wait until they got nice and dark as indicated in the recipe.
Caribbean Beef Plantain Bake
1 lb ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
2 bell peppers, stemmed, seeded, chopped
(I cheated and used a bag of frozen sliced peppers and onions!)
1/2 jar strained organic tomatoes
1 can diced tomatoes
Paprika, Cumin, Oregano, Chili Powder, Cinnamon, S&P
2-3 very ripe (dark brown/black) plantains
2 - 3 eggs
In a large frying pan, brown the ground beef. Set beef aside once done.
Saute the onion & pepper in the same pan and lightly brown. Add spices (I don't put measurements bc I don't measure. Be generous!)
Meanwhile in another pan, heat coconut oil. Peel plantains and cut into bite size slices and saute until browned, flip to brown both sides.
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Add tomatoes to the veggies and warm, then stir beef in.
Put the beef/ veggie mixture in 9x9 glass baking pan, top with plantain slices (I kind of pushed them into the sauce).
In a little bowl, beat the eggs. Pour them over the casserole.
Bake the casserole for 20 to 30 minutes.
