‘Big Evil’ Cheeseburger

Thursday, April 15, 2010

23 Comments

I have fond memories of fast food from childhood. I did not get fast food all that often (thanks mom for always cooking for us!!) so I remember it being a special treat, or something we had when we were short on time.  When I was very small I would get kids meals, the happy […]

Porchetta

Monday, December 21, 2009

20 Comments

When I was at the FoodBuzz festival back in November I had something that was life-changingly good.  It is called porchetta. Porchetta is a pork shoulder with the fat and skin attached.  It is slowly cooked so the skin becomes crunchy while the meat becomes ridiculously tender.  The skin, attached to the fat cap, is […]

Slow-Cooker Braised Short Ribs with Honey Garlic Glaze

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

26 Comments

Braising is one of my favorite ways to prepare tough cuts of meat. This slow method of cooking breaks down the connective tissues and fat making otherwise tough cuts of meat tender, juicy, and very flavorful.  I almost feel bad for people who have no idea how wonderful cheap cuts can be.  Of the cheap […]

Triple Citrus Skirt Steak

I love a good juicy steak.   One of my favorite cuts of beef is the skirt steak.  It is so flavorful, and if prepared properly it is very tender and juicy.  For the most part I use skirt steak for fajitas, and it does make some spectacular fajitas, but when I came across a […]

Jalapeno Bacon Cheddar Cheese Burgers

Monday, July 20, 2009

A well grilled burger is a thing of beauty.  Add jalapenos, sharp cheddar cheese and thick cut bacon and it is the stuff of dreams. I have a few requirements for a good burger. It must be made with fairly lean  meat (around 90%), it must have salt and pepper, and it must remain moist after […]

Grilled Mushroom and Ricotta Pizza on Sourdough Wheat Crust

Friday, June 12, 2009

15 Comments

I have been on something of a pizza kick lately, and not those commercially prepared pies with flavorless cheese and mushy veggies. I can directly pin-point when this all started.  It began at the Mushroom Council lunch when Chef Kent Rathburn made us a grilled mushroom pizza.  I knew in that moment that I would […]

Bacon Explosion … Yes, Really.

Monday, February 2, 2009

1 Comment

My local newspaper, the Dallas Morning News, posted a recipe just before Superbowl Sunday titled Bacon Explosion.  Since bacon is the candy of meat, I had to click the link and see what was what.  What I found was intriguing, and hard to resist. It is a blanket of woven, thick cut, bacon that encases […]
