Meat as a main course

As a main course there is a whole variety of meats. Somewhat special is the leguan. Because it is hard to find in Europe we do not offer a recipe specially for this.Much mre common is goat, pork and beef. If you want to buy beef on theislan and are looking for a special piece of it: good luck... ;-)

The most popular way of heating meat is the barbecue. They take anything that was round formerly and could be split into two halfes liek gasbottles, oilcans and so on. On the beach or aside the road you may meet people toasting a marinated peace of meat.

Cook the beas in the water and let them boil for 30-40 minutes until they are done. Taste sometimes a bea so that you don't get them too soft. Salt them at the end.
Chop the other clove into small pieces and slice the onion into thin rings. Mix them with 2 spoons of the water of the beas, the vinegar, the ron and 2 spoons of the oil. Add Salt and Pepper and so much of the Classic Yellow Sauce that it is hot enough for you. Dry the beas.

Heat up the oven with 190 degrees. Put some water into the fat pan of the oven and get it into the oven. Put the ribs on the roast above that. Roast them ca. 45 min. For serving get a leave of the Radicio, put the beas on it and cut the ribs into single bones and serve them with a bit of alu foil.

Spareribs, marianated sweet sour and gently roasted

2000 gr fresh Spareribs cutten into pieces of 2-3 ribs

Wash the ribs and dry them.
Heat up the oven to 80 degrees lower/upper heat.
The ribs must be seared before you can get them into the oven. Therefore put some into the hot oil in a pan, roast them on both sides until they are brown. Then marinate with the ketchup and put them into the backing tray. Start with the thickest pieces and iterate until all ribs are in the oven.
The ribs should stay in the oven for 3 1/2 hours. In the middle turn them around and marinate with the rest of the sauce. Raise the temperature for the last 30 minutes to 140 degrees. When they are ready put them onto a plate and get the sauce and meat juice into a bowl. Mix the sauce forcefull and serve with the ribs.
You may serve white bread and coal slaw as side dishes with this.

2,5 kg Porkshoulder, with crust but without bones
1/2 ripe Ananas, but not to small
1 Clove of Garlic
1 TS Bellos Hot Sauce (if you like it more hot, add more)
200 ml veggie broth
80 gr polenta
150 ml brown ron
1 bay leaf
1/4 TL grounded piment
4 EL soysauce, better a bit salty than sweet
4 EL honey
4 EL tomato purree
salt and pepper

Get the meat washed and cut a bag into it so that you can fill it. If you aint got the right knife to do so better ask the butcher to do that for you.
Cut the crust rhombical, rub the bag for the filling with salt, pepper and teh tomator purree. Cut the ananas into small pieces after peeling it. Ground the bay leaf, chop the garlic.
Mix the broth with polenta, ananas, 3 Spoons of ron, Bello Hot Sauce, bay leaf, garlic, the piment and pepper. Boil it shortly and then let it brew for about 10 minutes until the paste gets more solid. The polenta should still be a bit hard, but it will get ready during the roasting.
Heat up the oven to about 200 degrees. Air circulation oven should have about 170 degrees.
Fill the roast with the polenta and fix it with tooth picks. Put it into a narrow pot an on the bottom rail of the oven. Should roast for about 1h 45mins. After an hour you should start to check that the crust doesn't get too dark. If it does put some alu foil over it to prevent it. Mix the soysauce with 3 spoons honey and 3 spoons of the ron. Brush the roast with it 15 minutes before the end of baking.

When ready put the roast for 5 minutes into alu foil and put it aside. Get the fond out of the pot and season it with honey, ron and pepper. Collect the meat juice when cutting the roast and add it to the sauce.
