How to Make Sofrito Feliciano
- In a small skillet (I use cast iron), brown the salt pork and ham rapidly over high heat. Reduce heat to low.
- Add in the olive oil, oregano, onion, peppers, culantro leaves, and garlic. Sauté about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Ingredients are optional and can be adjusted to taste. Use in recipes calling for Sofrito, or to season meats, rice, and vegetable dishes.
- Culantro (Plant)
Eryngium foetidum is a tropical perennial and annual herb in the family Apiaceae. Common names include culantro, Mexican coriander and long coriander. It is native to Mexico and South America, but is cultivated worldwide.
