Cuban-style Steaks in Garlic-Lime Marinade

Cuban-style Steaks in Garlic-Lime Marinade by John Spottiswood

These steaks are a treat and a great way to make an inexpensive cut of meat memorable. You can use bottom round (best), top round, or a thin cut sirloin for this dish. The steaks should be cut about a 1/2 thick. Mine were a little thicker, so I pounded them with a mallet to thin them. In Cuban restaurants, this recipe is called…

Balinese BBQ Pork Roast - Babi Guling

Balinese BBQ Pork Roast - Babi Guling by John Spottiswood

My cousin Brett recently went to Bali for his honeymoon, so I decided to try the most famous Balinese dish for July 4th this summer. This pork came out soft and tasty like the meat you eat at a Luau, but with a delicious complexity of flavors from the chiles, garlic, ginger, lemongrass and turmeric. The process of slicing the roast…

Lemon Basil Grilled Chicken

Lemon Basil Grilled Chicken by John Spottiswood

This is a simple and tasty summer grilled chicken recipe. We usually cook this with legs or thighs, but it goes well with chicken breast too. Consider doubling the recipe as it is even better the next day. We used left overs of this chicken to make the chicken noodle soup I posted recently.

VIETNAMESE BO LA LOT

VIETNAMESE BO LA LOT by Linda Tay Esposito

This is a very tasty Vietnamese appetizer and part of the famous "bo 7 mon" Vietnamese menu of eating 7 different types of beef dishes. Beef 7 ways. No holy cow here. The skewers of little green parcels of beef make a lovely presentation. La lot is a type of Asian herb - a large shiny heart-shaped leaf which gives a peppery,…

Brazilian Chicken

Brazilian Chicken by John Spottiswood

After watching Brazil come back from 2-0 to beat the US 3-2 in soccer last weekend, I got an itch to try some Brazilian BBQ. If figured if I can't rejoice in victory, at least I can enjoy the food they'll serve at their parties! This Brazlian chicken is really tender and delicious...and uses beer, one of my favorite BBQ ingredients.…

Dutch West Indies Chicken Kebabs - Boka Dushi

Dutch West Indies Chicken Kebabs - Boka Dushi by John Spottiswood

This dish offers an amazing collage of flavors blending Indonesian, Portuguese, Spanish and West African flavors. Personally, I prefer the marinade and dipping sauce on these kebabs to traditional Indonesian satay. The heavy sweetness of the Indonesian peanut sauce is replaced by a tangy, spicy and slightly sweet mixture of peanuts,…

Amazing Afghan Chicken

Amazing Afghan Chicken by John Spottiswood

This recipe, known as Murgh in India, is amazingly flavorful and a real crowd pleaser. I served two BBQ chicken recipes for July 4th, my father-in-law's Chinese Barbecued Chicken (linked below) and this new dish. The kids mostly ate the sweeter Chinese version, but the adults split about 50-50 in terms of their favorites. I saw…

Grilled Chicken Breast with Chimichurri

Grilled Chicken Breast with Chimichurri by Nancy Miyasaki

This simple to make sauce and marinade is one of the best parts of Argentinian cooking. While I've normally eaten Chimichurri with steak, it is possibly even more delicious with white meat chicken. You won't be disappointed.

Asian-Style Grilled Black Bass

Asian-Style Grilled Black Bass by John Spottiswood

This fish is simply delicious. The flesh is like butter and the flavor is from heaven. I know that sounds extreme, but it's true. I was in Costco and the fresh fish counter had whole black bass. I'd never made it before, but the woman behind the counter said it is similar to yellowtail (hamachi) which is one of my favorites, so I…
