MIGUEL TRINIDAD: My absolute favorite is lambí. My mouth is watering just thinking about this because it’s my absolute favorite dish.

Hi, my name’s Miguel Trinidad. And I am the executive chef and owner of 99th Floor. I will be making a couple of Dominican dishes today, the first one being pernil. I’m going to be using some of the meat from that in a second holiday dish called pasteles, very similar to tamales. Let’s get started.

And because a fairly small amount of sausage is called for, this dish is an easy entry point for anyone looking to cut down on meat consumption.

The cabbage and onion pick up tons of flavor from the sausage’s rendered fat. A couple of cans of white beans — or whatever beans you have on hand — add heft and earthiness, while a bit of cream provides richness. You’ll cover the pan with a mixture of Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs before baking for a cheesy, crunchy,
