Peruvian Meat and Rice

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"A Peruvian meal that my Japanese mother loved. This is her quick, altered version of the meal. Unfortunately she never measured the ingredients, so I always have to guess and taste-test this at every step. You can substitute ground turkey for pork if desired. I usually end up adding more cumin, garlic, and soy sauce right before serving."
