Classic Caribbean Coconut Stewed Beef.

Classic Caribbean Coconut Stewed Beef.

Here's a dish I usually reach for when I'm homesick for the Caribbean and I need something comforting. Served with rice, pasta, ground provisions, roasted breadfruit or even garlic mashed potatoes, this coconut stewed beef is simply heavenly. While we didn't eat a lot of beef when I was growing up on the islands (we didn't like the taste of fresh butchered beef), the occasional time mom would fix this for dinner. it was always a hit. Since we'll slowly braise this for some time, you can use a very cheap cut of beef if you wanted.

Asparagus In Stewed Salted Cod.

Asparagus In Stewed Salted Cod.

After moving to Canada I was exposed to many 'new' ingredients, which were not found in the typical Caribbean garden or market. One such ingredient which became an immediate hit with my taste buds was asparagus. Normally I'd grill them, but early in the season when it's still a bit too cold to go outside and spark up the grill, I like doing this sort of stew (stir-fry for many). Based on the method we use for making a saltfish (salted cod) stew in the Caribbean, this is certainly one of the best ways to enjoy asparagus.

Caribbean Style Stewed Lamb Chops.

Caribbean Style Stewed Lamb Chops.

As a young fella on the islands, I don't ever recall having lamb (had to call mom and she confirmed this). And to be quite honest, I didn't even start eating goat until my adult years in Canada after living with my aunt, who's a master at cooking it in a rich and spicy curry sauce. Today I'm not a huge fan of lamb, as I find the taste and texture turns me off a little (plus the price), but the odd time it is cooked in our home, this is my go-to recipe. Not necessarily "Caribbean", but you'll noticed a lot of flavor-adding ingredients being used as we would in the Caribbean.

Festive Saltfish Buljol Recipe.

Festive Saltfish Buljol Recipe.

This being the holiday season I thought I'd take a classic recipe for making saltfish buljol and put a little festive spin on it, to serve at your holiday party or to take with you as you visit family this holiday season. We'll follow the same basic rules of making traditional saltfish buljol (basically a fish salad) and add a few other ingredients to help balance and brighten up the overall flavors of this classic dish. You'll notice that I did post this under the gluten free recipe section, but do keep in mind hat you'll need a gluten free bread or cracker to serve these on, to meet with your complete gluten free dietary needs.

Island style Curry Pork Recipe.

Island style Curry Pork Recipe.

Curry wasn’t cooked often in our home when we were growing up (dad was not a fan of curry), especially pork. Mom’s go-to recipe when it came to pork was either stewed (stewed pork recipe) or roasted in the oven. When I moved to Canada and started living with my aunt (mentioned her in my cookbook), […]

How To Make A Quick Beef Stir Fry (gluten free).

This recipe takes me back to a time when I was in my early teens and I’d go to watch movies on the weekend in San Fernando (Trinidad) with my bother and our dad. There was a Chinese restaurant on Mucurapo Street where we’d usually end up as I’ve had a weakness for Chinese food […]

Classic Caribbean Banana Punch (banana smoothie).

Classic Caribbean Banana Punch (banana smoothie).

What’s a month of grilling without a refreshing dessert in a glass? There’s no better way to start (or finish) the day on those hot summer days, than a refreshing glass of banana punch. I guess for most people outside the Caribbean this would be called a ‘shake’ or smoothie, but as with all thick […]

Eddoes With Leftover Trinbago Stewed Pork (recipe).

Eddoes With Leftover Trinbago Stewed Pork (recipe).

Whenever I make stewed pork (Trinidad style stewed pork) I purposely make extra so I have leftovers for adding to other dishes.. like this one using eddoes. As I’ve mentioned before I’m a ‘country’ boy at heart, so ground provisions (starchy root type vegetables) are a huge part of my diet (though expensive to buy […]

If you’ve priced or purchased crab meat from the fish market or grocers you’d know how expensive the stuff can be, so making crab cakes can be a bit hard on your pocket. My love for crab cakes is deep, so I came up with this recipe for using canned crab meat which is very […]
