Main course Pork US/Caribbean

Cuban style pork with rice


  • 2 Pork chops
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1 cup of fresh orange
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • Half tsp cumin powder
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 2 diced tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • Rice and peas to serve


This is such a simple recipe, the flavour of orange doesn’t really shine through but all of the citrus juice results in a really tender piece of pork.

Mix all of the ingredients apart from the rice and peas together and marinade the pork in the mixture for about an hour.

In the meantime cook the rice and peas, the peas are simply mixed through the rice>

When the marinade is ready pan fry the pork steaks for about 7 mins each side depending on the thickness, make sure you add all the juice from the marinade so the meat has a sauce.  Once ready serve with the rice and pea, simple!
