I want to warn you, though, please make sure that you wear gloves when chopping the pepper, and when you're cleaning up. The capsaicin in these is intense. You may even want to consider a mask while working with them. I got it on my hands while cleaning up the dishes. Not nearly as horrific experience as when I chopped a scotch bonnet bare handed, but my fingers are tingly and tight today.
It's that time of year, the squirrels are making caches of food for the winter, and so do a lot of us, myself included. Tell us about your favourite food to make in bulk and store for later! Leave a comment below.
Injecting marinade into your meat is a great way to get that marinated flavour and tenderness without taking the time to actually marinate. This is also a great way to increase the melt-in-your-mouth-ness of a good cut of meat. Napoleon's Deluxe Marinade Injector is a great tool to have in your arsenal of great grilling tools.
The husband was running late the night I made this for dinner. It was quite a treat when he came home and found a perfectly cooked roast beef dinner waiting for him. Depending on the size of the roast you get, this meal doesn't take much longer than most. Give it a try, a weeknight treat or a weekend meal. Red Wine Injected Roast Beef With Injected Baked Potatoes is just plain good. Leave a comment below and tell us about your favourite "treat" meat and potatoes meal.
When you get a craving, there's not much you can do but cater to it, well when it comes to food anyway. I had been craving some tacos for a while so this was just an amazing treat. While braising I tested the meat a couple of times and was surprised at how spicy it was. I was worried that the Carne Asada was going to be too spicy, but it turned out perfectly.
Now I know that some of you like to keep things hot. If you are after that, I would really recommend making this Ghost Pepper Salsa to go with your Carne Asada. Though I am curious! Mild, Medium, or HOT HOT HOT? Leave a comment below and tell us how you like it!
If you don’t have a slow cooker, do not fear. You can use a big pot and simmer your chili on medium-low for 6+ hours.
No beans about it. There are no beans in this chili. It’s got plenty of protein from that awesome shredded stewing beef. This is a fantastic freezer meal too! Portion it out to single serves – you get about 10 from this – or you can put it into big tubs for family food night!
This is my first time working with a super hot pepper. I was a little leery after my first time working with scotch bonnets. I thought it went well. Have you ever had a hot pepper mishap? What happened? Leave a comment below to tell us all about it! OR Tell us what you made with Ghost Peppers and how it turned out!
I love these mini meatloaves. They were easy to make, and you can even freeze them if you don’t eat them all. For a healthier version you can use chicken or turkey instead of beef. OR go crazy and use ground elk or moose instead.
