jibarito - plantain sandwich Photo  Hector Rodriguez. Licensed to About.com.In Puerto Rico, "jibaro" is a reference to the islands rural population. But, in Chicago a jibarito is a "culinary masterpiece that when done properly first hits your nose with its fragrant smear of garlic oil wafting off hot, crisp, fried plantains." (Puerto Rico Herald)

My jibarito sandwich version has a roast beef filling with Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato and seasoned mayonnaise. You can make these large or small for party sandwiches.

Do you have any special “Filling” recipe for the Plantain Sandwich other than the Beef ? Or should I just substitute,
pork, ham or chicken for the Beef ?
Am asking as sometimes different ingredients are needed to bring out the flavors of other meat fillings -

The preferred filling is beef. I like to use thin sliced roast beef, but a thinly sliced steak works well. But, you can use any filling you like.
