Authentic Cuban Sofrito, It the Key ingredent for Cuban food, it gives it the flavor.
My mother-in law made these often when I lived in Miami before her death. After reading other recipes, I found they all missed one very important ingredient for authenticity-PORK! This recipe takes a while to cook, and I have also used a crock pot with good results for those who enjoy using them. Hope you enjoy!
Shredded beef Cuban style. Serve on top of rice.
Lip smacking, tongue tingling, finger licking good!
For best results always use fresh produce.
My friend first made these crispy fried chicken pieces for me at her BBQ party last summer, I loved them and have been making the dish ever since. I serve mine in a bowl placed in the middle of the table, with a bowl of salad.
An easy, zesty sauce that gives your fish or chicken a taste of the tropics.
The most delicioso homemade pizza. The Caribbean part of this pizza comes from the rich tomato sauce "Rico" from here on the island and the pizza is made in our kitchen in Juana Diaz, Puerto Rico. I'll let the a'La Gringo part up to you!
This pulled pork is the center piece of an Island themed BBQ party I did last summer. I accompanied this with a Slaw with an Island Twist and Black Beans with Lime and Cumin scented Rice. Several pitchers of Mojitos and we had a blast. Good Food, Good Friends and Good Food. You can't lose with that combination.
This Slaw is a variation of my basic southern Cole Slaw. I substituted the lime and lemon juice for the vinegar and added mango and pineapple. It is an awesome addition to the Cuban Style Pulled Pork Sandwiches
This rice dish is the perfect side dish for my Island themed BBQ cook out.
There is no other BBQ method even remotely as flavorful as Jamaican jerk. There is a Jamaican restaurant near my house that I am in love with. The owner was kind enough to suggest to me how to make my own jerk at home. This sauce can also be used on mushrooms, pork, shrimp, tofu -- whatever your heart desires.
Tired of boring burgers whining to you about their day and talking about their feelings? Need a burger that will punch you in the mouth in that special way like you normally have to pay Sally Two-Toes down the street to do?
Try the jerk burgers, and prepare for face-punchingly awesome flavor.
Enjoy this mix of native Caribbean, Spanish, English, and African spices. Then celebrate Caribbean culture by lying in a hammock--the word comes from the Taino word "hamaca."
This is a mouth-watering hearty burger with a burst of bright citrusy flavor. The citrus flavors aren't overwhelming so don't shy away from trying it! This is my version of Floribbean food!
A cold pasta salad with ham, pineapple, onion and a jerk flavored mayonnaise sauce.
Great spice! Greater flavor! And sooooooooo easy! Buzz up the spices the day before, spread on pork, refrigerate, and done! The next day, heat up the grill and the aroma will have them swarming like bees!
With bacon draped all over it like Bill Russell guarding Wilt Chamberlain, this pork is incredibly tasty and tender.
A quick and easy snack with some punch. You could easily make this during halftime of a football game and have some hot bites ready by the second-half kickoff.
A sweet, spicy, tangy and delicious marinade that can be used for your favorite fish. I would recommend using either catfish or salmon if you would like to use fish.
An easy appetizer and a great melding of Island and Asian cooking styles.
