Plates with white rice and black beans



This recipe is found in the cook book Cuba! Recipes and Stories from the Cuban Kitchen but you can also find it here.

That looks really, really nice. I have some pork loin, so this just might be on the docket, if I ever get moving with the cooking projects.

dang, this sounds pretty interesting! Hoisin and 5 spice sounds more like something I'd expect from a chinese dish than cuban. i bet it tastes awesome though.

It makes sense since hoisen is, depending on what recipe used, is basically made from the other ingredients in the recipe's glaze.  The Caribbean flavors all seem to be there minus any rum.  I wasn't sure how I'd feel about this due to the amount of sugar but it worked.

I basted the pork loin, fat side down, every 30 minutes with the glaze and it disappeared into the meat for the first 3 applications.  It flavored the entire roast.

Leftovers made great Cuban sandwiches.
