I am Russian and very happy that I learn how to cook for my Dominican husband. I cooked it with tostones. My husband said it was amazing.

Finally a Latina chef that is humble enough to get down to an understandable level for their viewers, with easy ingredients that anybody can find at their grocery store without breaking the bank. Thank you and God bless you and your family.

I just made this and it was incredibly successful. The perfect Dominican taste. My mom and I grew up with hardboiled egg, raisins and olives in it so it was a bit different than yours but for my first time making it, it made all my nostalgia come back.

I just finished making this, and it seriously reminds me of the version my dad made. This was one of his favorite things to make for us because we all loved it so much!! He is sadly not with us anymore due to a 10 year battle with a brain tumor, but thanks to this channel his memory stayed with me 😭 thank you chef zee!

Hey! Your videos are so good! I already cook most of these on my own but I have been incorporating some of what you do in my cooking which has enhanced it. I typically use Tomato Sauce in my recipes, but you use tomato paste which I guess is all about personal preference, but do you use it in order to manage the amount of liquid you are using? or does it have a better taste? I was just curious. I was taught by using the sauce so I'm apprehensive about using paste.

Used your recipe to accompany my Chop cheese sandwich and it came out amazing, thank you for the video.

My mom and grandmother would put just a few raisins in when she added the green olives. Made it very good to get an occasional sweet in with the salty/savory meat. She also used this meat to make pastelitos. Anyone else remember doing this in their recipe?

My husband (who is Italian) loves quipe, so I’m going to use this carne recipe to make the quipe! Or at least try. I’ve never made it before but my mom and Tias always make them for Christmas and funerals 😣😣😣 and has been asking me to make them!
