Earlier this week Richard and I had a free night so we decided to make dinner. I had bought a flank steak at Whole Foods, so we had a cuban themed dinner. We breaded and fried the steak with onion salt and garlic powder, cooked the black beans with some garlic, onions, and green peppers, and made plantains in a style called "tostones." To make tostones you first fry the plantains on both sides until they are browned, then squish them flat, and fry them again. They turn out soft and crunchy and are delicious with a little bit of salt.
