Cuban cuisine is as varied as the origins of the country itself, where it has been influenced by African, Arabic, Chinese, French, Portuguese and Spanish cultures. Traditional Cuban dishes are made from readily available, inexpensive, simple ingredients and are usually prepared and spiced to make them more flavorful. Most Cuban cooking relies on the use of a few basic spices, such as bay leaves, cumin, garlic and oregano. Most of the food is cooked slowly over a low flame and you won’t find many dishes that are deep fried or covered with creamy or heavy sauces. We’ve made this Mojo sauce to drizzle over some fish tacos as well.
What’s In It
Hand blended with a fragrant combination of garlic, black pepper, lime, orange, cumin and onion. Use it as a dry rub on the meat or add some beer and/or orange juice to the roasting pan. Cover and roast until the meat is done...it’ll be juicy and loaded with flavor
