Gallo Pinto – a Typical Costa Rican meal
Costa Rica is a melting pot and we had a choice of food from all over the world. But one thing you can be sure of, is that every restaurant you go to has a bottle of Salsa Lizano on the table and Gallo Pinto on the menu.
1 cup of cooked rice
1 cup of cooked beans
1 chopped onion (small)
1 small chopped red pepper
2 cloves of garlic chopped
1 tbs oil
¼ cup chopped cilantro
4 Tbs. Salsa Lizano – (can use Worcestershire sauce or A-1)
Pinch of black pepper
1 tbs seasoning
How to prepare
1. Fry onion, red pepper, garlic, cilantro in the vegetable oil, about 3 minutes.
2. Pour in the beans and add the sauce, black pepper and seasoning. Let it cook for a few minutes, but don’t let it dry out.
