    This recipe comes from the country of Anguilla in the Caribbean, but I do not think it needs to or even should be used only with Caribbean foods. Serve with oven-baked snapper with lemon slices on top.

    Recipe #504623

    A sweet and sour salsa to top grilled fish, chicken, beans or rice.

    Recipe #374010

    This recipe uses traditional Caribbean ingredients and seasonings. You can either use ox tails or beef back ribs for the meat (both inexpensive cuts). I use frozen "Sancocho Ajiaco" vegetables made by La Fe. It consists of large dice yautia, green plantain, yuca (cassava), pumpkin, and corn on the cob. Using fresh vegetables will not affect cooking time significantly. This recipe contains both pressure cooker instructions and conventional stove-top.

    Recipe #433968

    This is traditionally a vegetarian dish, but I needed to use up some leftover pork shoulder. You can use any cut of pork you wish, of course. I like to start this dish off with my favorite sofrito (Recipe #444676), but if you don't want to use that just start with a finely chopped onion. We like to puree the tomatoes in the food processor, but this is not necessary or traditional. I drain the liquid and puree the solids, then recombine. I like the sweet onion flavor for this recipe.

    Recipe #444841

    Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry - The addition of black beans, to what may seem to be a familiar family favorite, is just what is needed for a little change of pace. This salad is really simple to put together using Simply Potatoes Diced Potatoes with Onions and canned black beans.

    Recipe #474854

    This recipe makes use of the inexpensive beef shank, but you can use another cut of beef, if you like. Oxtail would work nicely. This recipe is made in a pressure cooker, but you could use a Dutch oven on the stove top, or a slow cooker (directions included).

    Recipe #441461

    What makes this version Caribbean is the use of vegetables found more commonly in the Caribbean. DH is from Colombia and has never heard of some of these ingredients. I've provided several options as far as the vegetables go so you can use whatever you can find. Green plantain, yautia, yucca root, potatoes all have a neutral taste. The yellow platain, sweet potato, batata, and squash are slightly sweet. I don't know if you have a secret way to cut the corn into rounds, but I find that I have to cook the corn first to soften the cob. I add it add serving time.

    Recipe #477437

    This recipe calls for pink beans, but the method will work with other beans such as red beans, kidney beans, canelloni beans, etc. Serve with rice.

    Recipe #374018

    This recipe comes from "The Illustrated Food and Cooking of the Caribbean Central and South America" by Jenni Fleetwood and Marina Filipelli. I have adapted it to include pressure cooker instruction to cut down on cooking time. I also use canned beans for convenience. If using fresh, use 1 cup dried beans, soak overnight, and cook them about 1 1/4 hours in a separate pot.

    Recipe #451450

    This recipe is how I found out I like Cuban food, a lot. My husband, who is Colombian, loved this also. I just have to hide from him the fact that after cooking for a couple of hours the onions and peppers are discarded and new ones put in for the final simmer. He would find this wasteful, but it adds to the taste and texture of the dish. Don't be afraid of the rather large list of ingredients, the recipe is really easy, and oh so delicious.

    Recipe #346999

    This recipe starts with fresh pigeon peas and I am translating it from Spanish. It comes from an old cookbook, originally published in 1954 called "Cocina Criolla" by Carmen Aboy Valldejuli who was born in 1912. So I suppose she would know Puerto Rican cooking if anyone does!

    Recipe #470716

    This is a traditional Christmas Eve dish from Puerto Rico. Most people add the alcaparrado (olives and capers) at the beginning of cooking. I think this makes the dish taste "funny." I stir in the olives and capers at the end of cooking which I think makes for a cleaner flavor. This recipe is based on one by Daisy martinez. Look at recipe #244296 for the achiote (annatto) oil and recipe #444676 for the sofrito, or use your favorite or get store-bought. This recipe makes a lot.

    Recipe #444679

    The salmon steaks are marinated in lemon juice, then lightly pan fried in butter, and finished in the mango sauce. It is sweet without being too sweet.

    Recipe #411935

    This recipe is for a bone-in pork shoulder, or pernil. It is marinated in a garlicky paste for 1 to 3 days; the longer the better. Unlike other recipes in the database, it is cooked at a relatively high heat so that the result is a tender roast with crispy crackling or chicharons. Adapted from Daisy Martinez. Cooking time is approximate. The original recipe called for a 4.5 lb pork shoulder. The smallest I found was 8.5 lbs.

    Recipe #444718

    Cube steak is marinated in a garlicky citrus-lime sauce for a short time, then quickly braised. Serve with boiled potato and choice of vegetable, if desired.
