Pork Chops with Sweet Potato and Fennel Hash

Pork chops are so easy.  They cook up quickly without much fuss, which makes them great for mid-week dinners.  I especially like pork paired with something that has a little sweetness.  Fruits like apples, cherries, and apricots are clear winners – but so are the sugars from slowly caramelized fennel, onion, and sweet potatoes in… Continue reading Pork Chops with Sweet Potato and Fennel Hash

Beef Chili Rellenos

Stuffed poblano peppers are a great way to make a pot of chili more interesting, whether you’re having guests or just using up some leftovers.  This is not a quick recipe because there is a lot of preparation, but your hard work will pay off! The chili in this recipe is mildly spicy.  If you’d… Continue reading Beef Chili Rellenos

Big, Bad Beefy Back Ribs

Smoking these gigantic beef ribs is not for the faint of heart – they are big and bad, as the title of this post says!  It takes some prep work, starting days ahead if your ribs are in the freezer.  Then on cooking day, plan on starting them fairly early because they need 6 to… Continue reading Big, Bad Beefy Back Ribs

Primal Burgers…buns need not apply

A mid-week cookout, just because! First, the burger meat!  Some people might gasp in horror at this, but others will nod knowingly in approval – but I have ADDED FAT to the grass-fed ground beef because it was 90% lean.  Not just any old fat, mind you, but 100% pure beef lard from grass-fed cattle… Continue reading Primal Burgers…buns need not apply
