    These are all delicious favorites … background is mixed spanish french and scottish/english and my hubby is Puerto Rican. We may ropa vieja and picadillo often ……but did you know beef is actually illegal for local cubans to eat? Only the wealthy and tourists are allowed to eat beef in Cuba

      How interesting! Do you know why that is?

    My favorite part of this article is where you mentioned a meal with shredded beef and vegetables. One of the films we watched last night took place in Cuba, so my parents and I got really curious about their local cuisine. I hope that we can find a Cuban restaurant in NJ that can give the same taste through their dishes.
