 How to Make Haitian Griot

The following Haitian Griot recipe is the easiest you’ll find on the internet. I promise! I’ll preface this post by letting you know I am not a cook. I can make about two to three “meals” and that’s it. I am blessed to be married to a Le Cordeon Bleu graduate, so I don’t have to hang out in the kitchen too much. That being said, I am a Haitian-American woman who grew up eating some amazing food. One of my favorite dishes was and is Haitian Griot, fried pork shoulder.  We eat griot at every party or even at small family gatherings. It’s served as a side dish with other fried haitian foods known as Fritay. My husband taught himself how to make Griot (with a little help from my mother), and came up with a recipe that requires little to no skill.  Here’s everything you need to make Haitian Griot:
