Okay, I've tried making Arroz con Gandules in a number of ways, and I just can't find a recipe that I really like that I can stick with. I know there are many ways to make it, but somehow whenever I do it, it ends up too bland or too salty. Anyone have any specific suggestions or tried and true recipes? I'm getting a little desparate! Help!
*By the way, this post was triggered by Tyler Florence's episode of "Tyler's Ultimate," where he makes smashed caramelized plantains, pernil, and apparently "arroz de gandules." I have to give him a wag of the finger for getting the name of such a popular Puerto Rican dish incorrect, but I will give him a tip of the hat for at least attempting to feature Puerto Rican food on the Food Network.
