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…

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…

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,…

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…

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…

Mojo Criollo

Mojo Criollo by Sergio Hernandez

Mojo (pronounced mo-ho, not mo-joe) is a classic Cuban seasoning sauce that is a wonderful marinade for meat, fish, poultry, and vegetables. A mojo is made of garlic, herbs, olive oil, and citrus, and there is no end to the variations. No Cuban meal would be complete without mojo. Here is my take on this delicious marinade/rub.…

Cuban Inspired Applewood Pork Skewers

Cuban Inspired Applewood Pork Skewers by Robyn Medlin

Living in South Florida, Cuban inspiration abounds and I have one of my co-workers to thank for the idea behind these skewers. The pork shoulder meat is readily available in Latin supermarkets because it is traditionally used in the dish Masas de Cerdo Fritas (fried pork chunks). In addition to the meat selection, the cilantro, lime,…

Easiest Caribbean Baked Fish

Easiest Caribbean Baked Fish by Cuban Cuisine

This recipe combines my Grandmother's baked fish recipe with the flavours of St. Lucia...My grandmother called this dish Pescado Verde...or 'Green Fish'. Despite the slightly dodgey translation, you will love this super easy but special Caribbean favourite featuring celery, onions, garlic lemon and spices....
