1. Mojo-Inspired Barbecue Sauce


Remove the garlic tops and put them on a foil. Brush with olive oil and turn the foil into a packet. Roast until the garlic cloves soften and then turn them into a paste. Whisk the garlic paste with orange juice, ketchup, sugar, lime juice, mustard, chili powder, oregano, ginger, salt, black pepper, lemongrass and cayenne pepper. Simmer over medium heat. Voila! There’s your mojo-inspired barbecue sauce!


2. Pork Sandwich


Combine lemonade, onion, orange juice, oregano, garlic, olive juice and lime juice and pour it over a pork loin roast. Marinate for at least 6 hours. Before grilling, season with salt and pepper. Roast for about 10 minutes until brown then move to the cooler side of the grill for indirect cooking. Carve once cooked and put in French rolls. Add deli ham, butter, Swiss cheese and pickle slices.


3. Lime-Grilled Chicken With Cuban Salsa


Make a Cuban salsa by mixing black beans, ripe mango cubes, chopped red onions, lime juice, cilantro and jalapeno peppers in a bowl. Marinate chicken breasts in a mixture of lime juice, oil, pepper, salt and lime peel. Let it sit for about 15 minutes then grill.


4. Spiced Pork Chops


Combine lime juice, garlic cloves, ground cumin, onion powder, freshly ground black pepper and olive oil. Marinate boneless pork chops in this mixture for at least an hour. Grill the meat for about 8 to 10 minutes, turning only once.


5. Roast Pork / Pernil O Pierna Asada


Rub salt all over the pork ham or pork shoulder then make cuts on it. Make a Cuban marinade by blending lemon (or orange or lime) juice, bay leaf, cumin powder, garlic cloves, black pepper, oregano and salt. Take a cup of this mixture and set it aside to be used for basting later on. Soak the ham or pork shoulder in the rest of the marinade. Let it sit overnight then grill in your La Caja China.


6. Cuban Flank Steak


Combine fresh lime juice, olive oil, ground cumin, dried oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, soy sauce, ground chipotle chile powder and lime zest in a mixing bowl. Marinate your steak flank in this mixture for 24 hours to get the best results. Grill meat for approximately 4 to 5 minutes on each side to achieve a rare to medium rare doneness. Prolong the grill time to 6 minutes per side for medium.


7. Cuban Grilled Corn


Just grill your corn cobs over medium heat for approximately 12 minutes. Brush them with melted butter then liberally sprinkle with grated cotija or asiago cheese. Sprinkle with paprika and salt as well. Serve with lime wedges.


8. Cheese-Stuffed Grilled Peppers


Make a cheese stuffing by mixing Parmigiano-Reggiano and cream cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste. Afterwards, remove the stems of Cubanelle or Anaheim peppers. Remove their seeds and membranes as well. Fill them with the cream cheese stuffing and put the pepper tops back. Rub with olive oil and then grill over moderately high heat.
