    To serve, use a cup or small bowl as a mold. Brush some oil into each individual mold and fill halfway with rice. Add 2-3 tablespoons of the meat filling and cover with a top layer of rice. Press down applying pressure to the stack so that it retains its shape when you're ready to plate, so that it's easy to remove from the mold.

More About This Recipe

  • Arroz tapado is one of the most popular, easy-to-prepare Peruvian dishes. It got its name from the way the rice, or arroz, is covered with a layer of filling in stacked layers, making it look way more complicated than it really is. The ingredients used in a traditional tapado will vary depending on the preferences of the chef preparing it. That's what makes this dish so special; there's no one way to prepare it, and no right or wrong way to put it together. Check out my favorite version, below!
