Great Way To Grill Chicken Breasts

Monday, August 12, 2019 Food  No comments

When it comes to grilling chicken, breasts can be a problem for some, especially boneless skinless chicken breasts on the grill. The meat itself is lean, and without the bones to insulate it or skin to protect it, that naked breast on the grill has a tendency to easily overcook and dry out.

Great Way To Grill Chicken Breasts

grilled chicken

One method is to marinate chicken cutlets, or chicken breasts pounded to an even thickness, and quickly grill them on high heat. We use this method for our  cilantro lime chicken and it works fine. 

 Solution (Brine!)

Another way, which doesn’t require you to change the shape of the chicken breasts, is to brine the chicken first.grilled chicken

All it takes is 30 minutes in a simple brine solution of 1/4 cup kosher salt dissolved in 4 cups water...

Simple Grilled Salmon ?

Monday, July 15, 2019 Food

                                    Simple Grilled Salmon 

I always see someone asking about smoking or grilling salmon, So I figured I would share this easy and simple grilled salmon. 

1 Make the marinade: Combine marinade ingredients in a bowl. If sugar is an ingredient in the marinade you are using, stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.

2 Marinate the salmon fillets: Cut fillets 1 1/2 to 2 inches wide. Place marinade ingredients in a large casserole dish (or a plate with sides so the marinade doesn’t run). Coat the salmon fillets in the marinade and then place them skinless-side down in the marinade.

Marinate for 20 minutes for a quick marinade (can do this at room temperature while you are preparing the grill) or if you have more time, from 1 to 2 hours in the refrigerator.

Better-Than-Restaurant Quality Skillet Fajitas

What do you usually think of when you think of fajitas? Steak or Chicken ? Well Today we are going to try something else.

 LET’S MAKE DELICIOUS FAJITAS IN A SKILLET !

It’s all in the seasoning for these fajitas! Toss shrimp in some chili powder and red pepper flakes, and then quickly cook them in a skillet with some veggies. Better-than-restaurant quality fajitas are yours in no time! You can do this indoors or outdoors on your grill. I like using my pellet grill or my weber kettle grill

WHAT KIND OF SHRIMP FOR FAJITAS?

I have no idea how they size shrimp. There are large shrimp that seem medium compared to other shrimp in the store. I’ve never really seen small shrimp, so I’m not sure who is making this scale.

Anyway, for fajitas, I like large shrimp, which usually come 31-35 shrim...

Chipotle Hamburger Recipe To Try

Chipotle Hamburger Recipe

I love a good Hamburger and have many ways I like to make them, I got a recipe from a buddy for chipotle hamburger you have to try, 

Hamburger

1 Roast the  poblano chiles: If including poblano chiles in your burger, you will need to roast them first. Coat the poblanos with a little oil and grill or broil them until they are blackened on all sides. Alternatively, you can take the plain, un-oiled peppers and place them directly on a gas stovetop burner, turning them as needed, until they are blackened on all sides.

Place the blackened peppers in a covered bowl for 15 minutes or so to steam. Peel off the charred skin and remove all the seeds. Slice into thick ribbons and toss with a little vegetable oil and salt and set aside.

Italian Beef With Stew Meat

Monday, June 10, 2019 Food  No comments

Let’s talk about Italian beef, when you think of making Italian beef you usually think of using something like a rump roast, but today we will be using stew meat. That’s right I said stew meat, did I throw you a curve ball on that or what? I have a friend who told me he used stew meat and I decided I would have to give this a try. He used a pressure cooker but I am doing this on a Green Mountain Davey Crockett pellet grill. I think the Smokey flavor will set it off. SoI decided I would smoke the meat first 150 degrees for an hour.

Simple Recipe For Ranch Pork Chops

Monday, May 27, 2019 Food

Here is a Simple Recipe For Ranch Pork Chops I think your family will love:

We all like dinners that are simple and easy to make with minimal clean up and sheet pan dinners are just that, and this simple recipe for Ranch Pork Chops is one of those simple and easy dinners you can make for your family.

Simple Recipe For Ranch Pork Chops

What I feel are The Best Pork Chops for Baking in this recipe

  • Boneless pork chops will cook faster and are easier to serve. Just slice them up and you’re done!
  • Bone-in pork chops have more flavor ( my opinion) and won’t overcook as quickly. There’s more leeway in the cooking time, but that also means that they generally take longer to bake. 

It’s just my opinion, but I would rather save the bone-in pork chops for grilling and use boneless for this recipe.

Lets talk about Steak Tartare

Monday, May 6, 2019 Food

 I am going to talk about Steak Tartare, I can remember as a child going to the butcher and having some raw ground meat seasoned with my step father, I was scared to try it at first, but after I got talked into it I decided it wasn’t half bad, The texture was something totally different and I couldn’t believe I was eating raw meat. This was my introduction to beef tartare.

What Is Steak Tartare?

 Steak tartare is a dish of finely chopped beef, served raw and mixed with any number of condiments but most commonly egg yolk, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, hot sauce, fresh herbs, and other seasonings. It’s often served with bread or toast of some kind, and is often  on restaurant menus as an appetizer...

Make Your Favorite Flavored Coffee Creamer Go Farther (and save money)

If you love your coffee with flavored creamer nearly as much as I do then this is for you. You already know that creamer isn’t all that cheap, but again, if you love it like I do you buy it anyway.

 This idea began one day while I was watching reruns of the George Burns and Gracie Allen TV show on youtube. Originally broadcast in the fifties, they were “live” as all television was back then. They didn’t have “commercials” per se, so they would include references to whatever product was their sponsor as part of the show. Through much of the shows run their sponsor was “Carnation Evaporated Milk, the milk from contented cows”. I became curious if it was as good in coffee as they claimed so I ordered some. Lo and behold it was as good as they said it was...

Time To Smoke Us A Beef Brisket

Monday, April 22, 2019 Food  No comments

It’s time to smoke us a Beef Brisket. This is a pretty popular cut of meat that people love to smoke. I am always seeing someone posting about cooking one in the smoker or on the grill. There are so many different ways people are cooking them these days. The brisket is essential in two parts the point and the flat, The point has more fat and the flat has more meat. The brisket has a grain, the point runs a different direction and most don’t notice this causing an issue with slicing the brisket. Look at the meat before cooking and when you are finished and you will notice.I wouldn’t worry about cutting the meat until you are finished cooking it, unless you would rather separate and cook separately, maybe making burnt ends with part of it like with the point.beef brisket

The Best Crab Rangoon

This recipe is for my wonderful wife’s Crab Rangoon. She makes the best I have had out side of a couple resturaunts. When she tells me she is going to be making it my mouth tends to start watering. I am always excited for it to be finished so I can dive in. I could eat these things all the time. I must say she is the one who actually got me addicted to it. I had eaten it before in restaurants, but once she made her home made batch I fell in love with it. Our children love it as well. She can never make enough it seems. We all tend to hang around waiting for the first one to be done, and see who will be the first to get one. I hope you enjoy ! Drop a comment and let me know if you try it.
