  • While cooking add the tomato paste and soy sauce.
  • Cook for 20 – 25 minutes. Adjust salt if necessary.
  • Note: Before we started layering we averaged that the pie would make about three layers so decided to separate the meat.
  • Layer a greased baking dish with plantain followed by the meat and a few sprinkles of cheese.
  • Continue layering until all ingredients are used up.
  • Note: Make sure to reserve some of the cheese for the topping.
  • Pour the evaporated milk then sprinkle the rest of cheese over the top.
