Caribbean Colombo Roasted Pork

Caribbean Colombo Roasted Pork by Rosemarie

Like the islands themselves, this wonderful pork dish lingers a bit in the oven, giving you plenty of time to sit back, relax and listen to the sounds of steel drum music. Now would be the perfect time to whip up a batch of tropical drinks, close your eyes and imagine far away places.

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,…

Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker

Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker by John Spottiswood

I've loved cuban black beans and rice ever since I lived in Weehawken, New Jersey and ate at the Unica Cafe. This recipe takes some short cuts and uses a rice cooker, but I still think the results are delicious. Try this under any caribbean grilled meat, fish or stew and you won't be disappointed!

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 Chicken Breast

Mojo Chicken Breast by Bob Vincent

This is a quick and tasty grilled chicken dish. The use of Cuban Mojo sauce perks up a boneless skinless chick breast. Use whatever spices you like to season the chicken before grilling. I chose a combination of Pasilla pepper, cumin, garlic pepper and salt. I served the chicken with a strawberry jicama salsa, baked plantains,…

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…

Caribbean Banana Cake

Caribbean Banana Cake by Gabriel Denison Chandler

I enjoy making this far more than the pedestrian versions of banana bread. You may add a shot of rum with the vanilla if you like: this version doesn't have it. You can also substitute Splenda for the white sugar. This cake is not sweet,and can be split and iced with Cream Cheese/Honey frosting to dress it up or just enjoyed plain…
