Pastelón, the Puerto Rican layered meat and sweet plantain pie, is one of those recipes that can divide families. Being a â€śNuyoricanâ€ť (a Puerto Rican from New York), I found this to be true when my husband and I came together over our first dish of pastelón. As a native Puerto Rican, he argued that my version â€śwasnâ€™t the real deal.â€ťWhat is Pastelón?
Pastelón is a classic Puerto Rican dish made with layers of thinly-sliced plantains, ground beef, and cheese! Think of it as a Puerto Rican version of lasagna.
