Ingredients

2 large ripe plantains

Vegetable oil as needed

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Cut plantains in half and peel. Slice them crosswise on the diagonal into 1/4inch ovals. In a 10inch iron skillet heat oil over moderate heat until hazy. Fry the plantains for about 4 minutes a side, turning them once. They should look golden brown. Drain on paper towels and season well with salt and pepper.
