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…

Pollo in porchetta

Pollo in porchetta by Frank Fariello

When I served this dish, several of my dinner guests were wondering what the 'secret' ingredient was that have this roast chicken such a special flavor. Of course, rotisserie chicken is almost always wonderfully juicy and luscious, but pollo in porchetta--chicken prepared in the manner of roast suckling pig--is something else.

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…

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.

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,…
