About Pabellon Criollo

After the Arepas this is the most traditional of Venezuelan dishes.  It includes carne mechada (savoury shredded beef), spiced black beans, fried plantain and white rice.  Like Boss Man Xavier it originated in Caracas, Venezuela.  The belief is this dish represents Venezuelan history and the mixing of many races.  The colours  of the black beans, brown beef and white rice represent the union of three races: African, European and Indigenous.
