Supper was quite a succulent and delectable change. You see, once in a while, I get the craving for something other than poultry or seafood. And today,was one of those days. I went with the other white meat (well, that’s what they call pork). I fetched a sizable pork steak at the butcher and went to ‘town’ with it.
I was in the mood for a rustic affair. Thus, I got my sturdy skillet and immersed my marinated steak within. Overnight, I roughly sliced steak into smaller portions. I then seasoned with crushed garlic, salt and black pepper to taste. I also added grated ginger root, balsamic vinegar and splash of soy sauce.
After removing the remnants of garlic, pork pieces were seared on both sides. Roughly chopped onion segments were added along with finely chopped scotch bonnet pepper, fresh thyme, crushed pimento (all spice) and additional clove of garlic. Cold water was added to cover pork pieces with lid on. This was then simmered under low to medium heat; making sure to turn on the other side.
Additional water was also added so as to create a brown sauce. Pork simmered for approximately 30 minutes until fork tender. Chopped leeks were then added for a contrasting and refreshing flavor to the dish.
I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food.
Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds.
I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones.
I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food.
Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
