Can This Son Guess His Mom’s Cooking? • Tasty

hi my name is sonia this is my son raymond today i’m here to cook one of my favorite cuban dishes picadillo rae is going to leave the kitchen while i cook when he comes back he’s not going to have one dish he’s going to have three identical dishes in front of him then he will have to pick which one i made let’s hope he picks rye pressure’s on out first up we’re gonna make our rice i have my rinsed rice i like using the rice cooker only because i can be starting the other dish at the same time and our water’s in a pinch of salt and i like to put a little bit of oil it’s about two cups here so it’s going to take anywhere about 15-20 minutes and now we’re going to put this aside and we’re going to start my picadillo we’re going to start with our ground beef this is a scaled-down version of what i cook at home i always like to make just a little extra in case you have that extra guest coming or you want to save it for your next day to make other dishes that you can make with the picadillo we can make some empanadas you can also make some very famous papatayena then we’re going to go ahead and add some onions and also bell peppers cuban style pinch of salt just a tad of pepper not too much a little bit of oregano the majority of the cuban dishes are not spicy we just like to put in enough flavors but not spicy so now we’re going to go ahead and add our garlic a little bit of the tomato paste and tomato sauce a lot of people don’t like the olives but it is a tradition i almost forgot raisins this just gives it that little sweet kick lastly i’m adding the sazon there are different kinds of sasonas out there this one has a little extra ingredient to help you color the meat a little bit as well from start to finish it takes anywhere from about 25 minutes to half an hour it’s a favorite dish it’s something that’s quick and easy my grandmother arrest her so it was one of her favorite dishes so that’s one of the main reasons we we take pride in doing this one in our house because she was the one that taught us how to cook this everything looks wonderful we’re just going to top it off and we’re going to start our patanitos maduro let’s see we’re going to pick out the most ripe i’m just going to peel here as you can see they’re very right we’re going to be cutting it at a long angle when you get them at the markets they come anywhere from hunter green to as you see here when they turn very brown those are the most ripe i’m going to slide them right in be very very careful of course you know your oil is extremely extremely hot you just want to cook them till they get just a little bit brown on the sides less than a minute on each side loving my parents their cooking the love that they put into the food it was just uh you know something wonderful if i were my son’s shoes and my mom were cooking absolutely i would know in a heartbeat which one would be hers so we have our three dishes here let’s plate up and normally we’re like to put a little bit more but because raymond has to taste two other dishes we’re gonna just give him a little taste here we’ll give him three because i know he likes them and here’s our dish picadillo white rice and sweet plantains hopefully he picks mine hi my name is raymond royero jr i am sonia sun her favorite son her only son but still her favorite i hope i get it right because i wouldn’t be able to live it down with myself if i don’t get it right let’s just put this into perspective okay i didn’t come in my car so if i get this wrong i’m probably gonna sit in the trunk if you guys and girls are watching pray for me time to eat let’s eat [Music] number one it looks pretty good if you’re cuban you don’t like this flavor is good the platanos tastes familiar but it tastes different at the same time the rice though i don’t know that really doesn’t taste like my mom’s rice i just don’t know the seasoning on the picadillo is a lot different than how my mother really makes it you never know once i try the other plates i will be sure damn this looks really good this one actually has raisins in it i like it uh the ones that have raisins in it if you don’t like raisins in your freak idea you should really try it it’s so good rico the rice isn’t bad the picadillo is just amazing the seasoning isn’t as thick as the first plate i mean it’s really balanced it’s not too salty the platanos they look amazing it’s not too burnt though i kind of like it a little dark but this is really nice the rice is not bad either i’m a big rice guy i like rice so number two was really good number one what’s good number three is it meant to be let’s see well this looks a lot different the platanos are darker piglet looks good oh my god it has potatoes and it actually doesn’t have olives it’s good but it’s just the seasoning is just a little bit too much on this one the bladder nose are good i love that there’s potatoes i love potatoes it helps balance out the food it helps balance out the flavor out of these three dishes i’m stuck between one and two because visually they’re both similar to my mom’s but i know how my mom cooks it’s gotta be number two and if i’m wrong this might be the last time all of you see me mom i picked number two the plantains were made exactly where you make them you don’t put them too dark you don’t put it too light but i could be wrong but please tell me if i got it right or wrong well no this one oh no way it’s this one oh thank god i’m sweating right here i am i’m oh please get this right you got it right thank god so i can sit next to you on the right home yeah i got it right so all those years of eating with her it worked for something so eat your food that your mom gives you look she only has to deal with me the rest of her life so this is just one stage of me surviving do you
