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…

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.…

Cuban Pork

Cuban Pork by John Spottiswood

I adapted this recipe from a very popular cuban pork recipe on Allrecipes. I used boneless country style ribs instead of pork roast, because they were on sale and easier! I also boiled instead of roasting, because I find it makes the pork even more tender. I was very happy with the results. Incredibly flavorful and wonderful over…

Mojo-Cuban Citrus Garlic Sauce

Mojo-Cuban Citrus Garlic Sauce by Bob Vincent

This is an adaped from a recipe by Steven Raichlen. Mojo is a traditional sauce for Cuban pit-roasted pork and palomilla (a thin steak cut from the round and grilled). It is made with lots of garlic and a sour orange tropical fruit called naranjo agria, or sour orange. In my area sour orange is not available so I used orange and…

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,…

Banana Glazed Butterflied Pork Tenderloin

Banana Glazed Butterflied Pork Tenderloin by Bob Vincent

This is a recipe adapted from Cheryl & Bill Jamison's book "Born To Grill." The original used pork chops but I had a tenderloin on hand that worked nicely. I added some ingredients in the form of rum, honey and garlic to the glaze. I used red onion instead of shallots as well. The dish is easy to make. Butterflying the pork…

Jamaican Chicken

Jamaican Chicken by John Spottiswood

Jerk chicken (and pork) is so famous in Jamaica, it's easy to forget that the island has other barbecued dishes. Among them is this incredibly flavorful, fall-off-the-bone-tender chicken. It's probably best cooked with a whole chicken, but I've only done it with chicken pieces. Also, if you're in a rush you can skip the marinade…

Died-and-Gone-to-Heaven Jamaican Curry Powder

Died-and-Gone-to-Heaven Jamaican Curry Powder by Kathleen Scott

The sweet, rich, rising aroma and complex weave of warmth and depth, like a smell-taste tapestry, could lead a person to part ways with the world happy. I started on this curry trail the first time a local goat farmer brought his free-range meat to the Farmer's Market. I love the Farmer's Market and the people who put their…
