Bacon Sofrito

Chef notes

With the added depth of bacon, your pork dishes may never be the same! Great in rice, beans, braises, soups, and stews.

Steps

Step 1 -

Add bacon and water to a cold pan and turn heat to medium. As the water evaporates, the bacon will fry evenly in its own fat. Let cook until almost crispy before proceeding to step 2. If water is evaporating too quickly, you can add more water or cover the pan with a lid.

Step 2 -

Reduce heat to low and add onions and pepper and sauté, stirring occasionally about 15–20 minutes.

Step 3 -

Add garlic and continue cooking, stirring occasionally for 10 more minutes. At this point, your ingredients should be nice and caramelized.

Step 4 -

Add Mombacho Cafe Spice Blend and stir well. Cook another 2–3 minutes.

Step 5 -

Use immediately, or cool and store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to a week; or, freeze for future use.

Things to remember

  • Starting the bacon in a cold pan with water will help to render more fat and fry evenly.
  • The bacon fat replaces cooking oil in this recipe and is unparalleled for caramelizing your onions and peppers.
  • Use this sofrito to make arroz con pollo, mix in with a can of beans or as a bean base, marinade, base for sauces, or toss in with your vegetables!
