  1. Heat 2 cups vegetable oil in a large, deep skillet or deep fryer to 350 degrees F. Place plantain halves in the oil and cook 1 to 2 minutes, until they float. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
  2. Place plantain halves between 2 cutting boards. Press to flatten. Place the flattened plantains back in the oil and cook for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic, skirt steak, onion, cumin and oregano. Cook, stirring frequently, until steak is cooked through.
  4. To serve, spread mayonnaise on one of the plantain slices. Top with cheese, steak and onion mixture, lettuce, and tomato. Place the other plantain half on top to form a sandwich. Cut in half and serve!

These are excellent! Doubled the recipe and have done these twice in the past 2 weeks. First as written, the second time as the "Sandwich King" on Food Network does it: with ham, cheese, lettuc...

We couldn't find plantains, so we had to use red-bannanas as a substitute. Structural integrity was lacking (as expected given the choice) but it was surprisingly yummy. The fried bannanas defi...

I made these with seasoned shredded chicken, white american cheese and guacamole. They are wonderful!

Sandwich de platano! Delicioso! I like to season the meat with a little bit of salt & pepper or adobo, but if you are watching sodium then it's not necessary, the spices add some good flavor. ...
