I don’t know whether it’s the bright and vibrant colours of the ingredients, the fresh, sweet, fruity, and tangy flavours, or the fact that it is bursting with flavour and features the moistest, most tender and juicy pork imaginable, but my Caribbean Pork Roast dish is one of those meals that you simply have to come back for more. My family certainly think so, as there are rarely any leftovers the following day.
What makes this dish so special? It’s the beautiful combination of tangy orange and zingy ginger that creates a delightful sour-sweet symphony in your mouth.
Paired with some fluffy rice, it’s an absolute treat! And here’s a little tip from my kitchen to yours – let the chicken marinate overnight. Trust me, the flavors meld together and elevate the dish to a whole new level.
A plain simple chicken (or any other meat) will gain so much more taste and tenderness by simply soaking in vinegar, soy sauce, and spices overnight. I’ve decided to try this Filipino recipe after seeing how easy it is to make. Sure, you have to reserve time for marinating, but time never stops me from preparing food, especially as exotic and delicious as this one.
I’ve made a bunch of these cookies, but there were gone in pretty much one day! I call that a culinary success. I had my doubts about ginger and how it would play out with the rest of the sweet ingredients, but it turned out amazing. Without ginger, these cookies would lose a bit of texture, but most importantly, an interesting spicy note you certainly don’t expect in a sweet tea-time cookie.
