This is my own recipe that I dreamed up out of who knows where. I know it is not really like caribbean food, but everybody loves it, so no one argues the name. One of my best recipes! If you like sweet and spicy food, give this a try. Let me know how you like it.
1Cut the pork into 1 inch squares. In a large pot, braise pork in the olive oil, along with chopped red onion. Brown pork. Dice tomatoes, squash, and mangos, add to pork. Add pineapple chunks, mushrooms, garlic, and mandarin oranges. For a thicker stew, drain, but keep, the juice from the pineapple chunks and mandarin oranges.
Add bell pepper last so they will remain crisp.
2Using plastic sterile gloves (the kind you can get at your drugstore) slice open the anaheim pepper(s), remove seeds, and mince into very tiny pieces. I like this recipe with only 1 or 2 peppers, but you may like it hotter. IMPORTANT: while wearing the gloves, do not touch your mouth, nose, or eyes.
3Add brown sugar, slowly to taste until right amount of sweetness desired is achieved.
4Add coconut milk and simmer for 20 minutes.
5Add sage, fresh chopped basil, and salt and pepper to taste. Trying after each addition to ensure no over or under spicing occurs.
6You can add 1 teasp nutmeg for a different taste. You can make this into a stir fry, I haven't tried it yet. I will put this together and have you a recipe for the stir fry within a few days.
You can also use chicken with/instead of pork, or go meatless. You can also use 1-2 pounds of precooked, deveined shrimp, but add them last so the don't shrink.
7Serve with rice. I like brown rice, but white, or wild rice does very well, too.
