Who else is a foodie?

This  is for my foodies, many people call us fatties too but thats' neither here nor there. We all need to be able to find quick recipes, cute appetizers and social dishes to entertain our friends and family. Being Haitian, I really really love food, and have found some great cultural dishes from many cultures, to impress your foreign man or woman. Lets not forget the vino, I will be sure to update you on the latest wines, and how to consume them appropriately. Drinking is vital to a true foodie. Food is everything and most important, food is love. Don't go too far fatties, Patti's gonna feed ya!

Country: Haiti

All Ingredients should be prepared before you start cooking this will save time and make cooking the dish easier and more enjoyable.
3 lbs shoulder of pork, cut into 1 to 2 inch cubes
1 finely chopped large onion
half cup of chopped shallots
one cup of bitter orange juice
one chopped hot green pepper
half cup of vegetable oil
salt, pepper and a litle thyme

Put all ingredients except the oil in a large pot and marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Place the marinated pork on the stove, add water to cover all ingredients and simmer for 90 minutes. Once cooked, drain the mixture, add oil and fry the pork in the pot until brown and crusty on the outside but tender on the inside.

Note: This is best served with mixed peppers also lnown as "picklies", fried plantains and a Champion  Cola.
