  • 1

    Marinate the ground beef with the seasonings you like and make four hamburger patties.

  • 2

    Grill or sauté them until they are cooked to your taste.

  • 3

    Cover the hot patties with the cheese slices so that they melt with the heat.

  • 4

    To make the patacones, peel the plantains. Cut each one into three parts and fry them in hot oil, until they turn two shades darker.

  • 5

    When the plantains are more or less cooked, remove them from your frying pan and flatten to about one-quarter-inch thick with a plate or a rolling pin.

  • 6

    Fry the plantains in batches a second time until they are crunchy, but still tender inside. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil. Salt them while they are still hot.

  • 7

    On a plate, place the patacón with a slice of green tomato on top, followed by the hamburger patty with melted cheese and finish it off with another patacón on top.

  • 8

    To make the fry sauce, combine the mayonnaise, ketchup and a few drops of lemon juice to taste.
