Arroz a la Cubana is originally a Spanish dish which consist of fried eggs and tomato sauce. Here in the Philippines, we saute ground beef or any lean ground meat with garlic, onions, potatoes, carrots , some peas and we mix it in either tomato sauce or oyster sauce. My version contains raisins and instead of carrots I used chopped bell peppers. Served with hot rice, egg, (preferably fried) and slices of banana fritters.

3 tbsp oyster sauce
2 small bell peppers chopped
