This is a family favorite from Cuba. You can substitute any meat you like, but the traditional way is rabbit. Serve with rice and a salad. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):


  • Place the rabbit pieces in a deep skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat along with the onion, garlic, and green pepper. Season with saffron, cumin, salt, pepper, lemon juice and the bay leaf. Pour the water over all. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 20 minutes.
