I have not posted in a while. I guess I've been relying on quick and easy favorites. And I can't take the credit for these pasteles. My friend, Blondie, makes them and they are a ton of work. They do contain boneless pork and can be made in many varieties. The basis is green bananas and yautia, a root vegetable along with other delicious ingredients (I'm too lazy to name them all since I type with two fingers looking at the keyboard)! However, I did steam the carrots and added cinnamon, salt, pepper and butter. The carrots were actually left over from my salmon dinner. I love how the pasteles glisten, I add a little hot sauce and it is a very satisfying meal.
