Tea Marinated Pork Loin Roast

Tea Marinated Pork Loin Roast

with White Nectarines

Posted on August 05, 2016

In the height of summer I am always looking for ways to take my favorite savory dishes and make them feel more seasonal. Sweet, once again, sends pork to a new level of flavor heaven in this recipe This Tea Marinated Pork Loin Roast with White Nectarines takes the spirit of summer and infuses it into an exquisite roast. The best part about this whole thing was that I set the marinade, which looks so pretty, and left for the day to help a friend move. When I came home, I just threw the pork onto a preheated grill for 45 minutes and dinner was pretty much ready.

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.

Crispy One Pan Chicken

Crispy One Pan Chicken

Marinated in Garlicky Greek Yogurt

Crispy One Pan Chicken Marinated in Garlicky Greek Yogurt is what happens when you go to make butter chicken on the grill and realize that you are totally out of any sort of curry. Yep. PRO TIP: Check for ingredients before you start cooking. Needless to say, I had to get creative with dinner after that. What came of that creativity turned out to be quite delicious, and very garlicky.

Cider Brined Pork

Cider Brined Pork

With Cider Sauce

Posted on November 04, 2015
I was going to throw my pork tenderloin into the crock pot and have some Slow Cooked Sake Pork. However my loving husband wrapped the loin straight instead of curled around itself and it wouldn't fit into the crock pot! Needless to say we had something else for dinner that night, but I did come up with a nifty recipe to have the next night! 

Like I mentioned in my Cider Donut recipe, we're obsessed with Angry Orchard Cider right now. So while rifling about in the fridge for something I could do to my tenderloin to make it tastier, my eyes alighted on the Angry Orchard Cider I had. Thus Cider Brined Pork was devised.

Teriyaki Beef Jerky

Teriyaki Beef Jerky

On The Smoker

Posted on September 01, 2015
We try to make it a point to make Beef Jerky every time the Apollo comes out. This Teriyaki Beef Jerky turned out amazing. Smoky, tender, little bitty crunchy bits... I won't bore  you with the poetry of how complex and wonderful the jerky tasted, needless to say however, that it was plain old YUM. Now, you may be asking yourself, how in the heck does the Sultana get all these different temperature smokes going on one smoker? That has crossed my mind, and I tell you how. These jerky bits only need about 3 hours to dehydrate, so you start them when you have started the smoker, so the temperature is still pretty low. You can get your pulled pork and ribs on at that time too, without too much worry. Then as the temperature rises, keep an eye on the jerky until it's done. Here's how it's done.

Grilled Beef And Broccoli

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 Flank Steak

Marinated Flank Steak

With Steak Cut Potatoes

Posted on September 16, 2014

It's always good to try something different. That is what I did with this recipe. First, I purchased a cut of steak that I don't often get. The flank steak is usually mis-cooked and often tough and not so great. But like many things, just needs some tender loving care. Flank is porous and benefits from the marinade treatment. The other thing I tried was some different photography techniques. I'm not sure I like how the dark and moody thing came out. But the photos make the food look tasty. I guess that's what matters.

Basic Brine Recipe

Basic Brine Recipe

Posted on June 28, 2011

Brines are not quite marinades, but more of a salty solution that helps keep the moisture in meats that typically dry out during the grilling process. This is a popular solution for turkey and pork.

The things to remember about using brine are;

  • Always rinse then pat dry the meat before cooking
  • Use a container that is big enough to fully submerge your meat, but not so big that it is allowed to float
  • A general rule is 1/2 quart (1/2 litre) per 1/2 lb of meat

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.
