My Favorite Cookbook
- Puerto Rican Roast Turkey (Pavochon)– This wonderfully garlic turkey graces our Thanksgiving table every year. I make the wet rub Daisy instructs for use under the turkey’s skin on the Monday before Thanksgiving, then let it marinate overnight. On Tuesday night, I dry my turkey and cover it with the wet rub before placing it in a Ziploc bag until I cook it on Thursday morning. With this recipe, my turkey is always moist, well seasoned and cooks faster than any other way I’ve tried.
- Puerto Rican Pot Roast (Carne Mechada)- Looking for a recipe to spruce up your usual pot roast dinner? This is the recipe for you! My father loved this recipe, and I would always add extra garlic just for him. While I don’t follow this recipe to the letter (I omit the ham most times), I believe that the steps Daisy lists helps my roast to come out perfect every time.
- Grandma’s Pork Chops (Chuletas de Abuela)- When pork chops are on special at the market, this is an awesome recipe to use for them. I’ve cooked this with both bone in and out, and they’re equally as tender. This recipe is listed in Daisy’s Top Ten, which she lists at the beginning of the book.
If you’ve ever been interested in trying out this type of cuisine, then this recipe book will be an excellent addition to your library!
