Arroz a la Cubana

Arroz a la Cubana is a Spanish dish consisting of white rice, fried egg, fried bananas and tomato sauce and does not include meat. The Filipino version of arroz a la cubana is quite distinctive because it contains sauteed ground meat usually pork and beef. This is a really nice and complete meal which you can eat during breakfast which is a bit heavy and also you can eat it for lunch or dinner. You can use plantain or saba bananas, but I think saba is more preferable.
