Arroz a la Cubana (Philippine Version)

Arroz ala Cubana is a Filipino comfort food dish with a predominantly Spanish influence.
It has 4 main components: ground meat stir-fry, fried banana (saba-type), sunny side up egg and rice.

The picture I just posted (above) is missing a few ingredients (I had to work with what's available in my pantry that day). But I'm sharing the standard recipe with you, below:
