Beer Marinated Lamb

Beer Marinated Lamb

with Chimichurri

Posted on December 08, 2016
To celebrate National Lager Day, I decided to make something that I haven’t tried in a long while - Beer Marinated Lamb with Chimichurri. Okay, let me clarify. I’ve made loads of lamb after falling in love with this meat when I started working on this blog; however, I haven’t tried chimichurri in a while. Not being a fan of cilantro, it’s kind of obvious why. I figured that my tastes have expanded and evolved since making Ted Reader’s Mesquite Planked Leg of Lamb. Still not a huge fan of cilantro, or chimichurri, but the lamb was cooked to perfection, and the lager marinade made up for that.

Soy and Honey Marinated Duck

Soy and Honey Marinated Duck

with Broccoli Fried Rice

Posted on July 20, 2016
Duck is savory and definitely different. It pairs beautifully with aromatics like thyme and sage. Duck can just as easily go with a delightful and sweet maple-butter. However, in search of something a little different, I decided to make Soy and Honey Marinated Duck with Broccoli Fried Rice. These duck breasts are marinated in soy, honey, sesame oil, and sake, then grilled to a perfect medium rare and served atop a bed of fresh fried rice, chock full of veggies. This delicious dish will be a fan favorite as soon as you serve it.

Grilled Pork Belly

Grilled Pork Belly

with Maple & Chinese Five Spice

Posted on February 19, 2016
My husband and I were in the fancy grocery store one night. You know the kind with the butcher and baker built in; this one even has a dry aging cabinet. That’s not what caught my attention that evening. No. It was the big slab of pork belly that was calling my name. Sure, I could do what we always do and smoke up some amazing bacon, but not this time. This time we made Grilled Pork Belly with Maple & Chinese Five Spice and it was like magic on a plate!

Grilled Beef And Broccoli

Good Chinese On The Grill

Posted on June 23, 2015
Grilled Beef and Broccoli came about when I had a craving for Chinese food the other day. My favorite dish is Beef And Broccoli, but I wanted to put a grilled spin on the whole deal. So I did. The broccoli came out slightly spicier than I envisioned, but otherwise it was a very delicious meal. Served with rice and topped with sesame seeds and green onion, it looked like a fancy, five star restaurant version of Beef and Broccoli.

Marinated Beef Skewers

Marinated Beef Skewers

With Spicy Peanut Dunk

Posted on March 18, 2015
I had some beef, but not wanting to fall into a rut, a delicious skillet steak rut mind you, but a rut nonetheless, I decided to make some Marinated Beef Skewers With Spicy Peanut Dunk. Okay well it didn't quite start that way. I definitely knew I was going to marinate the beef, but when I boiled the marinade to create a sauce, it didn't work out. So I got creative with the stuff in the pantry. I found roasted peanuts, and threw some garlic and basil in with that. Added a little curry powder, and gave it a good waz in the food processor. What I ended up with was a crazy good, garlicky dip for the beef, that spread nicely on the naan bread and made the whole meal.

Cinnamon Marinated Chicken Breasts

Cinnamon Marinated Chicken Breasts

On The Grill

Posted on November 11, 2014

After the most amazing success of the Honey Buttered Chicken Thighs (Exclusive Recipe Club recipe), I wanted to recapture the feeling and deliciousness in a meal for myself at home too. So, I threw a bunch of yummy sounding ingredients in a dish and marinated the chicken. What we ended up with was a sweet and tangy chicken dinner, chock full of veggies and chicken that had this lovely, partially caramelized, exterior.

Fresh ingredients make the difference here

Posted on September 09, 2014

I needed something to make for dinner one night. I was perusing the seafood isle at my local grocer while waiting in line for the deli attendant when I saw a gigantic swordfish steak sitting there pretty as you please. The skin was still on it, smooth and shiny, a dark green-ish-black-y-blue, and the colour was bright. It looked kinda good. The price was right too. So I snagged that lonely steak and capered home with my find.

Beer Marinade

Beer Marinade

Acidic Marinade

Posted on June 28, 2011

This marinade is great for red meats, and only takes 20 minutes to make. You may want to have extra beer though…one for you, one for the marinade… It is great to make in batches, and you can cover it, refrigerating for up to 3 weeks if unused.
