  • Mix well.
  • Add tomato paste and green seasoning and continue cooking.
  • When the beef is nearly finished add the golden ray margarine.
  • TO ASSEMBLE THE PIE
  • In a greased dish add one layer of breadfruit followed by a layer of beef. Complete with another layer of breadfruit. Top with cheese.
  • NOTE: Before you spread the breadfruit divide it into two so you will have equal amounts for each layer. Breadfruit is very sticky so make sure to wet the spoon you’re using to spread the breadfruit.

  • Cool for 10 minutes then serve.
