Servings: lots n lotsPrep Time: 30 min Cook Time: about 1-2 hrs
potatoes 4-5 lbs
pork about 3-4 lbs
1 cup rice, rinsed and drained
1- 2 large onions, chopped
2 large green peppers, chopped
tomatoes, chopped, enough to cover entire bottom and top layers
salt and pepper, to taste
oil or other fat
In bottom of large, deep casserole, I use a oval roaster with lid, layer sliced potatoes, as many as you need to feed your family. Salt and pepper them. Next add on top chopped onion, then chopped green pepper. On top of this add about 1/2 of the raw rinsed rice, and finish with chopped fresh tomatoes over all, salting and peppering as you like. I usually add a little to every layer. Drizzle a little olive or vegetable oil over all.
Next layer on your pork. I use whatever I have on hand, such as chops or cut up roast , or country style ribs. Cover entire top with layer of meat. Then repeat bottom layer again starting with potatoes and ending with rice and tomatoes on top, and drizzle a little more oil. Now pork is pretty lean and usually I have to add some fat, and that is why I use some oil, but you could use lard or bacon fat. Put a lid on top or cover with foil, and bake at 350 till done. After about an hour of baking, if it looks a little dry I add a little water to it, but it usually produces enough juice on it’s own.

My mom makes this only with ground beef. She calls it 7 layer dinner. It’s really good!

I imagine it would be good! Does she use raw gr beef or brown it first?
