@cooperlove:  My hubby Loves Cuban food so when I don’t have the time to slave away in the kitchen all day. I’ve made these easy cuban dishes.

 

Cuban Spiced Pork Chops

 


 

           2 (5 ounce) lean boneless porkchops

 

           2 limes, juices of

 

         1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

 

         2 garlic cloves, crushed

 

        1/4 teaspoon onion powder

 

         1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

 

         1/2 teaspoon olive oil (optional)

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

 

    1. Trim excess fat from pork chops. Use a knife to cut shallow cross-hatch marks over both surfaces of the chops.

     

      1. Mix all remaining ingredients together in a resealable bag or non-reactive container. Add the chops and place in the refrigerator. Marinate at least an hour.

       

        1. Grill or broil 8-10 minutes, turning once half way.

        2 cups onion, diced
        2 cups green pepper, seeded and finely chopped
        2 tablespoons olive oil for sautéing
        4 cloves garlic, minced
        2 pounds ground beef
        3 large roma tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped
        1 teaspoon cumin, ground
        1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
        1/8 teaspoon ground cloves (The is optional, but it makes it taste better!)
        1 teaspoon oregano
        1/2 cup green olives, chopped
        1/3 cup raisins
        1/2 teaspoon salt and black pepper (to taste)

         

        DIRECTIONS:

         

        Sauté onion and green pepper in olive oil in a large frying pan. Sauté about 5 minutes, until the onion is softened, then add the garlic and ground beef.

         

        Mash the onion and green pepper into the sautéing meat and cook until the meat is browned, about 5 minutes.

         

        Add the tomatoes, cumin, cinnamon, cloves (optional) and oregano. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.

         

        Add olives and raisins and simmer 5 minutes longer. Salt and pepper to taste.

         

        Serve over hot white rice.
