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…

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 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.

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,…

Cayman Johnnycake

Cayman Johnnycake by Parsley Sage

An old staple recipe in Cayman is the johnnycake. Oh man, they're good. They're also mix-and-matchable. You can go savory or sweet by serving it with something like garlic butter or even honey. Johnnycakes are pretty easy to make too which sparks a big thumbs up from me. Thumbs up from Mrs. Herb Garden too who is currently…
