Pastelon is the quintessential homemade dish, and it mixes the sweetness of fried ripe maduro with the cooked meat and sofrito, which is traditional in Puerto Rican kitchens. It’s worth mentioning that there are several recipes, as is common with cherished dishes from our countries. We all swear that our grandmas or moms make the best variations of these recipes, so it’s really the memories evoked by a dish’s unique flavor that make it delightful.
I recommend you prepare this exceptional dish. It’s such a treat!
