Pastelitos de Carne
Pastelitos de carne are meat filled pastries that are topped with a sweet glaze. They can be found in Cuban cafeterias and restaurants all over Miami. But there’s no need to make the trip, because they can easily be made at home. The filling is a Cuban picadillo, that’s super easy to make. For the pastry we take some help from the market by purchasing puff pastry; and that sweet glaze is honey. See super simple! #pastelitosdecarne #meatstuffedpastry #Cubanfood #breakfast
Meatballs Cuban Style
Meatballs Cuban style, this is how we had meatballs at my house, not over spaghetti but on a bed of white rice. In this recipe, the meatballs are seasoned with a combination of traditional Cuban spices – garlic powder, cumin, oregano, finely diced onions and parsley. #meatballs #Cubanfood #Cubanrecipes #groundbeef
Cuban Style Red Beans
When you think Cuban food, beans are usually on the menu. These Cuban style red beans are a popular dish made with pork. The pork used is typically an inexpensive cut. Cuban style red beans are traditionally served with white rice as a side dish, or as a stand-alone soup. #redbeans #frijolescolorados
Cuban Corn Stew
This is a Cuban Corn Stew called Guiso de Maiz in Spanish. It’s a traditional Cuban dish, and like most Cuban recipes this stew is made from easy to find, affordable ingredients. Made with pork stew meat, corn, potatoes and spices, this stew is perfect for tight budgets and hungry appetites. #Cubancornstew #guisodemaiz #stew #corn #Cubanfood #Cubanrecipes
Bistec de Palomilla
Bistec de Palomilla is the quintessential Cuban meal. Palomilla steak is top sirloin; traditionally it’s cut super thin, generously seasoned and pan fried.
Cuban Chicken Soup (Sopa de Pollo)
Made with chicken, pumpkin, potatoes, carrots, celery, corn and fidelini noodles, this Cuban Chicken Soup is fully loaded with goodness. We start by making a homemade chicken broth, and then we add all the delicious and good-for-you veggies.
Fried Pork Chunks
This is my take on Cuban-style fried pork chunks (masitas de puerco fritas). In this recipe, pork stew meat is seasoned with a traditional Cuban spice blend made up of salt, garlic powder, oregano, cumin and black pepper. Then they’re lightly coated in flour and fried until golden brown and delicious.
Carne con Papas
Carne con Papas is a Cuban comfort food favorite. An inexpensive cut of beef is cut into small chunks and braised in a rich and flavorful tomato sauce until tender. Potatoes are always added to this dish (it’s in the title), everything else depends on the cook. #carneconpapas #beefandpotatoes #Cubanfood #Cubanrecipes #beef #potatoes
Empanadas are stuffed pastries that are baked or fried. They’re usually stuffed with savory minced meat like chicken, beef or chorizo. In this recipe I replace ground beef with ground turkey and make a (mostly) traditional Cuban picadillo. Then the empanadas are fried until golden. #empanadas #Cubanrecipes #Cubanfood
Bistec en Cazuela - Cook2eatwell
Bistec en Cazuela is a typical Cuban meal; and like many Cuban dishes, it’s not fancy – but it sure is good! In English, bistec en cazuela translates to steak in a pot, and that’s what it is, kind of. It is thin steaks cooked in a flavorful tomato sauce with garlic and plenty of sliced onions.
