Hola amigos de Hive, espero se encuentren bien, con mucho cariño hoy voy a mostrarles cómo hacer un rico pasticho a base de plátanos y carne molida, se los recomiendo, es muy bueno para compartir con amigos o en reuniones familiares.



The main ingredients that I'm going to use in this preparation are the yellow plantain and the ground meat, when these two flavors are mixed, its flavor is exquisite.

1 kg of ground beef
4 yellow plantains
1 kg of tomato
1 onion
½ paprika
1 sweet pepper
100 g mozzarella cheese
100 g parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon of salt
½ tablespoon oregano
1 bay leaf
½ tablespoon of sugar
1 tablespoon of cornstarch



Los ingredientes principales que voy a usar en esta preparación es el plátano y la carne molida, cuando esos dos sabores se entremezclan, la degustación es exquisita.

1 kg de carne molida
4 plátanos
1 kg de tomate
1 cebolla
½ pimentón
1 ají dulce
100 g queso mozzarella
100 g queso parmesano
2 cucharas de aceite
1 cucharada de sal
½ cucharada de orégano
1 hoja de laurel
½ cucharada de azúcar
1 cucharada de maicena



To make the tomato sauce, wash the tomatoes, paprika, pepper and half an onion well, blend all the mentioned ingredients, place it in a pot over low heat, add oregano, bay leaf, ½ tablespoon of sugar and salt, boil for approximately 40 minutes.

When the sauce is ready, add the ground beef and boil it for 15 minutes.

Para hacer la salsa de tomate, se lava bien los tomates, el pimentón, el ají y media cebolla, licua todos los ingredientes mencionados, lo coloca en una olla a fuego lento, le agrega orégano, hoja de laurel, ½ cucharada de azúcar y sal al gusto, se deja hervir por 40 minutos aproximadamente.

Ya lista la salsa, le agrega la carne molida y la deja hervir por 15 minutos.


Remove the shells from the plantains, chop them into slices and fry.

Se quita las conchas a los plátanos, se pica en tajadas y se fritan.

To prepare the bechamel sauce, fry half an onion in a pot, add a little chicken broth, then add a spoon of cornstarch and salt.

Para la preparación de la salsa bechamel, frita media cebolla en una olla, se agrega un poquito de caldo de pollo, luego se añade una cuchara de maicena y sal al gusto.

Spread the tray with vegetable oil, the first layer with the bechamel sauce, then another layer of fried plantains, the next layer with mozzarella cheese, followed by another layer with ground beef and the last layer of Parmesan cheese, placed in the oven for 40 minutes.

Unta la bandeja con aceite, la primera capa con la salsa bechamel, luego otra capa de plátanos fritos, la siguiente capa con queso mozarella, seguido de otra capa con carne molida y la última capa de queso parmesano, se coloca en el horno por 40 minutos.


Lastly, add some strips of paprika and put it in the oven for 40 minutes.

De último, se le agrega unas tiras de pimentón y se mete al horno por 40 minutos.

Once removed from the oven you will have a delicious pastitsio.

Una vez sacado del horno te quedará un rico pasticho.
