Cider Vinaigrette Glazed Beets

Beets …. love em or hate em? If you’re on the hate team, these cider vinaigrette glazed beets may just turn your hate into love. I’m serious this time. I know I said it before about salisbury steak, but honestly, the hate felt for salisbury steak is not even close to the hate some feel for beets. And made in the Instant Pot? Fugettaboutit. Pressuring the beets is pure bliss. No peeling. Yes, you heard me right, no peeling! Just wash, trim and put them in the pot. When they’re done, the skins slide right off. Slick as greased owl…

Hot and Spicy Italian Beef – Instant Pot

Anyone else out there love a hot, shredded beef sandwich? I’m a sucker for a shredded beef sandwich, whether it be poboys, a French dip, or hot Italian beef. If I see it on a menu, odds are I’m gonna try it. But if you’re into beef sandwiches, you know, you KNOW they are not all created equally. Some are bland, some are just sliced deli meat, some are more like a beef fat sandwich, and some are so sopped up with juice you can’t even lift the damn thing, you have to use a fork. That’s why I like…

Greek Green Beans – Instant Pot (Fasolakia)

Greek green beans or fasolakia is a hearty, vibrant mix of green beans, potatoes, tomatoes and onion. Oh and feta, let’s not forget the feta. Salty, crumbly feta tops it off. How can this not be delicious? Well, at least that’s what I thought when I first heard of it. (Took me forever to say fasolakia – fas-uh-la-kee-uh) The problem was that the recipes I saw were on the stovetop and that’s not my gig – not right now in this heat anyway. So, I took a cue from my southern green beans recipe, because it’s green beans and potatoes…

Homemade Capicola

Homemade capicola will change your life … a little dramatic? Maybe, but you’ll be happy you made it. It’s tasty as all get out and easy as pie! Let me tell you about it… What is capicola? Capicola is a dry cured meat covered in spices. It comes from the coppa muscle and it’s located  between the head (capo) and includes the fourth or fifth rib of the pork shoulder (collo).   Or for us folks in the U.S., you’ll find it buried in a pork shoulder/butt. It’s used for it’s ratio of 30% fat and 70% lean meat. I had…

Try this double smoked ham that's brushed with a strawberry mustard glaze!

Double Smoked Ham with Strawberry Glaze

Double smoked ham? You might be thinking, what’s the point? Well, crazy flavor, that’s the point! Seriously though, this ham is so easy and the strawberry glaze puts it over the top. The already smoked ham gets kissed by even more smoke with this method, but what I really love about this is it makes for a great Sunday dinner. At the end of the smoke, I throw in some potatoes and carrots to cook in the ham juices, and it’s a whole “meal thing” – that serves plenty. Then, and this is my favorite part … well, except for…

Ribs and Gravy – Instant Pot

Ribs and gravy are the easiest, most delicious country-style-tastes-like-home-I-want-to-die-in-this-gravy thing you’ll make in your Instant Pot. And simple! I’m talking explain it to me like a 3 year old simple. Remember not too long ago I shared my boneless BBQ ribs? Well, it’s almost that very same recipe. It was actually born at the very same time on the same day. We did the ribs for that recipe and removed them to a pan to dress it and put it under the broiler. But then we looked in the pot and saw this liquid goodness left in the pot. What…

Here in lower Alabama, it’s grilling time all the time. And this is on my grill at least once a month. My favorite thing about this carne asada is that there’s no crazy crap that goes in there. The marinade is quick to put together and is just everyday ingredients you probably have in your pantry or fridge anyway. Except the limes and if you had to, you could use bottled lime…
