Lahma (Beef) Sofrito
Ave. Rating is 5 (1 ratings) Add Your Comments and Ratings

Posted by:  

This was a staple at our house when I was growing up. It was a simple and tasty way to prepare meat that went well with rice, peas, or potatoes. Lahma is an Arabic word for meat and Sofrito is a Spanish word that has many meanings and variations in different cultures but almost always refers to a type of sauce.
