1 cup vegetable oil for frying
1 medium green plantain, peel removed, cut lengthwise in half
½ tablespoon olive oil
1 filet of chicken, beef or pork
¼ yellow onion, finely sliced
salt to taste
iceberg lettuce leaves
"mayo-ketchup” (blend of ketchup, mayo and garlic salt)
1. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet on medium high and add the plantain. Fry for 10-15 minutes, until golden and well cooked.
2. Remove the plantain and let drain on paper towel. Chop up half the plantain with a knife or chopping tool. Then with a paper plate press down on the plantain until thin and flat, about 1/8 of an inch. Do the same with the other half. Take the flattened plantain and fry for a second time in the same oil until golden.
3. In another skillet heat the olive oil, add the onion and sauté for 2-3 minutes, adding salt and vinegar. Add the filet (beef, pork or chicken) and cook until done. Slice the meat.
4. To prepare the sandwich, place the plantains on a plate and add the meat, onion, lettuce and mayo-ketchup. If desired, cut sandwich in half.
