Dominican Sofrito

One “ingredient” that is a staple in my house is Dominican sofrito. My husband is Dominican, and his family uses it to season all different kinds of meat. His family doesn’t actually call is sofrito, they call it sazon.

After those ingredients are in the food processor, I start to blend them together. I continue to slowly add the remainder of the cilantro in. Pushing the cilantro down with the last celery stalk. After all the cilantro is added, I break the celery into pieces and throw it into the food processor.

      It definitely gives a great fresh taste to meat, just make sure to only use a light coating! Of course you can pin it! Thank you!

      Let me know if you do! I didn’t grow up using it, and now I get nervous when I’m running low! Sometimes we even make extra and freeze it.

    Good morning, a thousand blessings.
    When I saw the publicity that said sofrito Dominicano, I was very impressed, because that is a version of a pre-prepared seasoning and it does not have all the ingredients of the Dominican sofrito, it also has product and chemicals that the Dominican sofrito does not use.
    Such as red peppers or peppers, celery and Goya seasoning.
    The true Dominican sofrito is made with these ingredients: garlic, onion, oregano, chili peppers, cilantro or verdecito vegetables and salt.
    In another case tomatoes are added to color it and look for the acidity of the sofrito.
    In point that is a seasoned preparation in the Dominican Republic in its application and preparation when cooking is very different from that presentation.
