I didn't use saffron (because really, who has $15 for a spice?), but it still turned out really well. I have two very picky eaters who didn't love it but I enjoyed it and am looking forward to the leftovers. I halved the recipe and still had more than enough for three people.
Cuban-Style Pork & Rice
From EatingWell: March/April 2007
Full of spice and exotic flavors, this Cuban take on the classic Spanish paella is an easy way to feed a hungry crowd. Don't worry if you have leftovers. They can easily be rewarmed in a microwave or combined with eggs to make a Spanish tortilla (omelet); or for a great cold dish, toss the leftover rice with cooked vegetables and a vinaigrette made with lime juice instead of vinegar.

This was DELIGHTFUL!! A bit time consuming to make, but it was perfect for tonight's Saturday-night-in! Also, make sure your Dutch oven goes in the oven... If it does, this is a ONE POT meal!! I used more chicken stock (32 oz instead of 28 oz) and an entire can (14.5 oz) of tomatoes. I also used both artichokes and green beans, though should I make this again, I'll probably leave out the artichokes (the green beans have better texture and give it a little crunch since I used fresh green beans that I steamed) and possibly leave out the shrimp as well (they were good, but not necessary IMO).
This was seriously good and WILL be going into my regular rotation.
Any thoughts on how I could adjust this for the crock pot? I saw the previous post about the pressure cooker but I don’t know how similar that would or how long it would take with a crock pot.
Thanks for any help!
Haven't tried yet, but plan to.
Just a question...is there supposed to be 2 entries for the 2 cans of reduced-sodium chicken broth? Or should it be just 2 cans of broth, instead of 4?
I made this last night, and the family had to wait until 10:00 to eat, but they loved it! I didn't have the saffron and couldn't find it in the store, so I had to skip that. I added Tony Cachere's afterwards before serving, and everyone had seconds!
