Pabellón Criollo is the Venezuelan national dish and is without a doubt my family’s favorite. I must confess, I don't prepare is as often as I would like, but every time I do it's a huge success! Looking at the recipe you might think this dish is a little complicated, but it doesn't have to be. For example, the meat can be cooked and shredded the day before. I use canned beans, something my mom disapproves of, but it saves me tons of time. Serve the pabellón with arepitas and cream, it's delicious!
