Traditional Costa Rican Casado is a national dish, an entire meal, and a super satisfying meal at that. It is most certainly a “comfort food” repast, with an assortment of delicious entrees presented on each serving plate.
For hundreds of years in the past, Costa Rican Casado was the meal served to newlyweds at the wedding reception. Legend has it, that the newly married couple needed to get to know which kinds of foods each other liked best. So, all sorts of salads, meats, rice, beans and more were presented on one large serving platter. By the time the meal was finished, the bride and groom had a good idea which foods their mate preferred the most.
There are many variation of this meal, but this particular Traditional Costa Rican Casado is very much in the mainstream, featuring (the always present) rice and beans, as well as pork loin, salad, plantains, cheese, fried onions, and eggs.

Many ethnic food cultures have rice as a main staple in their cuisine. And the question of: Which is Best White or Brown Rice – often comes up in the minds of many ethnic foods lovers.
Rice is cultivated all over the world, and is naturally grown in rice paddies like this image on the left. And “natural” rice is usually some shade of brown in color. But ever the past several decades, “white” foods, such as white bread, potatoes, pasta, etc., have taken a bad rap.
