Boneless Baby Back Rib Sandwiches – Like a McRib, Only with Ribs

Yes, I’ve had a McRib sandwich, and no, I didn’t know it contained 70 ingredients, with baby back ribs not necessarily being one of them. I assumed they weren’t made from pristine pieces of succulent, heritage pork, but had no idea just how un-rib the McRib really was. Although, in […]

Sausage Mushroom Chicken – Don’t Let the Name Fool You

One of our most beloved, and popular dishes is the unremarkably named, “chicken, sausage, peppers, and potatoes,” which was sort of the inspiration behind this sausage mushroom chicken video. Besides their unimaginative names, what these recipes have in common is how they take advantage of rendered sausage fat, and its […]

Bacon Wrapped Spring Chicken

I’m running off to a very important meeting, and between getting some notes together, and finding a clean shirt, I don’t have time to write the bacon wrapped Spring chicken post just yet. So, for now you’ll have to settle for the ingredient amounts, and I promise I’ll fill out […]

Pork Agrodolce – Treat Your Meat to Some Sour and Sweet

“Agrodolce” is a very generic Italian term for any type of sweet and sour condiment, and while it’s used on all sorts of things, it really shines, both literally and figuratively, when used for braising chunks of succulent pork shoulder.

Spicy Salami Spread (Nduja) – Almost Instant Soft Serve Salami

I’m not saying this spicy salami spread is as good as traditional nduja, but I am saying this takes about 3 months less time to make, and still delivers most of the characteristics that make this Calabrian delicacy so amazing. And just in case you’re not familiar with nduja, a […]

Pig in a Pumpkin – Trick and Treat

Okay, so we’re not using a whole pig, but we are using a whole pumpkin, which not only produced some very succulent, flavorful pork, but also made for an absolutely stunning presentation. This looked so good, that many people might think it was faked, which really is the ultimate compliment. […]

Spicy Pork & Vegetable Tofu – Probably Not Mapo Tofu

This might look like I was trying to make a version of a famous Chinese dish called mapo tofu, but that’s not the case, and in fact, I’m pretty sure I was making this before I knew what mapo tofu was. And now that I’ve addressed the people that were […]
