Arroz ala cubana consists of ground beef sautéed with garlic, onion, tomato, green peas and raisins.  Diced potatoes and carrots may also be added. Salt and pepper are usually used to flavor the dish. Most people just simply eat it with rice especially if they are eating at home.  But in the restaurants, they serve it with fried egg, fried plantain banana and rice. No matter how you serve this wonderful dish, it always ends up being a satisfying meal.
