How to Make Tara's Rice & Beans
- In a deep pan - add your oil, tomato sauce, sazon, and sofrito. Cook over a medium heat for 4 - 5 minutes. While you are waiting, this is now a good time to slice your meat in to 1/4 inch pieces. Then cut slices into quarters.
- Add your remaining ingredients. Then add your hot water to just 1 inch above the rice line.
- Bring to a boil, and cook over high heat until most of the water is absorbed. Give a gentle stir. Then cover and lower heat. Cook over low heat for 30 minutes or until rice is tender.
