I love cooking Puerto Rican . . . l love the ingredients, the smell, the taste, and the fact that my family loves it. Since I live away from a Puerto Rican community and there is no large local market for Puerto Rican or Caribbean foods, I have to plan ahead and shop for our ingredients in a store that carries specialty foods. Now not all Latin markets carry our stuff. In Texas Latin means Mexican, few stores carry our ingredients. Last year I was not able to find canned corned beef hash anywhere for months. Puerto Rican Corn Beef Hash is a comfort food, it is called Carne Bif, and it is usually served with white rice and fried plantains. Our version of corn beef hash is Riqueño style - that means made to fit our taste. We use sofrito, tomato sauce, olives and capers, and potatoes. I grew up eating Carne Bif regulary. It is really a simple dish to prepare. Follow the recipe on our site at: http://www.elboricua.com/carnebif.html
