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…

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…

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…

This is a simple and fantastic grilled lamb recipe. It can be made with or without the wine, and marinating is not necessary if you leave out the wine. Our guests raved about this dish! Secret: Costco sells great leg of lamb for $3.99 a pound!

Grilled Tandoori Turkey Tenderloin

Grilled Tandoori Turkey Tenderloin by Bob Vincent

This is a fun rendition of Tandoori. It is adapted from a recipe in Cuisine At Home seven years ago. Since most people don't have a tandoor; a wood clay oven, similar results can be obtained by grilling the turkey on high heat. Don't be put off by the amount of spices used. Combined with the yogurt and sour cream for the marinade…

I found this fantastic grilled chicken wing recipe in Mario Batali's "Mario Tailgates NASCAR Style" cookbook published in 2006. The reason it's fantastic, you can…

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.

Grilled Pork Chops with Caribbean Wet Rub

Grilled Pork Chops with Caribbean Wet Rub by John Spottiswood

We served these pork chops over black beans and rice. It was a great combination. We took the wet rub from a recipe for pork tenderloin in Cooks Illustrated. I'm not sure it's powerful enough for a tenderloin unless it's butterflied, but it was wonderful on the pork chops. Normally we brine our pork chops before putting on the rub.…

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,…
