This dish was EXCELLENT. NOTE: I DID NOT USE A PRESSURE COOKER. I just don't have one, but I think it was better because I could simmer it for 1 1/2-2 hrs and let the meat get tender some steam ...

Excellent Cuban recipe. The only change to make it authentic is not to blend the vegetables. Leave them in 1" strips. Also, you'll want to add frozen peas. One tip: serve in the sauce. Do n...

This worked well using my slow cooker while I was gone for the day. We opened the door to a lovely aroma!

This was very tasty and fairly easy to make. I served it over steamed rice and my husband really liked it. The Oriental/Filipino market in our area has the Achiote powder. It's called Mama S...
