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…

Honey and Sea Salt Plantains

Honey and Sea Salt Plantains by Sean Kervin

The humble plantain seems to be one of the most misunderstood fruits in the grocery aisle. Most people pass over these green bananas in favor of their more popular yellow cousins, yet they are wonderful to cook with. Treat them just like a potato and boil, fry, or mash them for a slightly unique experience. This recipe is very…

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 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.…

Spicy Cuban Ropa Vieja

Spicy Cuban Ropa Vieja by John Spottiswood

I wanted to serve a slightly more flavorful version of Ropa Vieja, the classic cuban beef dish, over black beans and rice for a friends' pre-christmas dinner. I paired it with a pork stew and both were hugely popular. I used tri-tip and it shredded wonderfully. This can be made with a cheaper, tougher piece of meat, but when Tri-tip…

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,…
