Servings 4 servings
- Vegetable oil to fry
- 1 ripe plantain
- 1 Minute® Ready to Serve White Rice Family Bowl
- 3 – 4 cups Venezuelan Shredded Beef, warmed
- 2 cups cooked black beans, warmed
- 4 small arepas (optional)

Fry the Plantains:
Heat about 1-inch of oil (just enough to coat the bottom of the pan) in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat.
Peel the plantains and discard the skins. Slice diagonally into 1/4-inch thick slices.
Fry the plantains in oil, turning occasionally, until a golden-brown color, about 2 to 4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Set aside.
Heat the rice in the microwave following the packet instructions.
Divide the Venezuelan Shredded Beef, white rice, black bean and fried plantains into 4 bowls. Add 1 – 2 mini arepas to each bowl, if desired.
Garnish with cilantro and serve.
