This is the way I bang out briskets. There’s so many smoked brisket recipes I just stick to what I know tastes good when guests are involved. This probably isn’t competition legal but it’s the law at Texas Butter. Back in the day a pitmasters thermometer was his hand a his proof of concept was the line waiting to get some. A pitmaster didn’t know he was one and
All crappy cut beef lovers of the low and slow burn do it how they do it, different from you. Just think of the different appliances used to cook these thangs. You can keep an oven’s temperature under control pretty easy but when you step into a 1000 gallon pit it’s a different set of rules mostly paying attention for the long haul. So this is a good guide
The original dinner was going to be a meatloaf but things changed from the grocery to home. They came out great and I can’t say I’ve ever cooked a meatball so blingy.
Cooking steaks of any sort I go at it with a laid back attitude. They take time before and after the burn to get a perfect ripe. This and most my steaks don’t get a full fledged assault of spices, salt alone would be mighty fine.
One of our premier spots in Houston to get decadent unchallenged fajitas is Pappasito’s. I don’t know how they do it but I always aim for that bar when making relations with a fajita. Anyways, before I jabber about my history of the gadamn fajita, they were always
Texas chili does not have beans, there settled that. It also doesn’t mean I don’t like red beans in my chili. Well, have I got a solution for you and you can call it
The 1st fried turkey I ever had I thought was the best turkey I ever had. This way flips that fry trick and this is easily done in the oven if you are smoker deficient. Not ready for the cranberry influx I decided to do a primer with Jesus seeds you see there.
Don’t know what’s in a true Swedish meatball but I’m filing them under Swede. The gravy is pretty close to Swedish, I think… If you’re Texan and got outa state guest yer gonna have to pull out the Texas pasta or it’s Texas pride abuse. State Law
Decided to roll a loin with a stuffing I’ve been rolling around in my head in an effort to finish out another recipe. I smoked this one lightly but it’s not necessary I was really also seasoning a new smoker…
Made a typical chicken and rice dish that originally I was gonna incorporate lime in it. Changed my mind because I knew leftovers are lunch and might not want lime chicken for lunch. Poof Key lime Chum was bornded.
These turned out a lot better than I thought they would and pretty easy as far as getting dinner done. Sort of a pain cutting the chicken breast so thin especially if you don’t have a slicer.
These sammies are really good but I swung and missed a couple times making them. Confessions… If using fajita meat it is important to fillet all the membrane off the meat. A lot of cuts of beef will work with this but
Really good steak sliders with just a few basic ingredients one being some excellent cheese. Next to it was a thick cut shredded cheddar by Tillamook. I’ve had it before but never realized how much better it is among the affordable cheese section.
Flat iron steak cut into strips rolled into roses and baked. Made some cilantro chum to spread within the roses. Depending on mood virtually any sauce will work. Warning from experience this is not an option for a traditional rose giving event, it is a supplement…
Shrimp and fajitas wrapped in bacon and tropicaltized? I’m in! Will lay this build out in one because you’ll be going from sauce to sticks back to sauce and all at same time at times. Not hard, hardest part is building sticks. Anyways, pineapple will tenderize fajita meat like..
Guess since it’s Easter weekend my meat merchant has a lot of roasts on sale. I don’t know what cut this was, probably a roast. Takes some time to make but will last a while and make great leftovers.
These sliders came out great especially since my grocer picked up a box or three of sweet rolls. Sweet rolls are popular around the holidays because they make the best gravy sopper-uppers… I cooked the patty a little different than usual by
You can put all kinds of ingredients on a stick! Shrimp, chicken, and my favorite flat iron steak. The rice idea came from a friend’s pork chop slow cooker recipe that looks ugly as hell but taste fantastic.
Probably my favorite steak is the flat iron or blade steak. The inspiration for the dish was for testing our other seasoning Cluck and what it taste good on. The hardest part of this recipe would be cooking the steak unless you already had leftover steak.
A favorite all time burger of mine but I have to admit this one was too big. You see a lot of huge burgers on Instagram and I let it go to my head. Although a great burger, I like a burger I can control with one hand max two.
The salad is identical to our Mango Shrimp Salad and using queso fresco cheese instead of shredded colby. Well, and it’s a wilted salad if you dig it that way too.. To get this dinner to the table takes no time at all however, you do have to plan a day before.
If you don’t have a smoker nor time to tend to it then no worries you can bake briskets too. The only difference is it’s not smokey. The sausage was my favorite in the sausage section just cooked in pan prior to the sandwich build. Pretty wicked combo I’ve seen but never tried.
This dinner I often call “rich people food” is a simple one compared to some of my similar bruschetta builds with crab, shrimp, oysters… If I remember right I was testing a fresh made batch of our Smoked hot sauce. This recipe take some planning if you don’t have cooked brisket lying around.
I love to create cook and making my own food rounds out to what you see on IG. You get to know Texas Butter and I am not destroying my body, as badly… This is a typical hamburger pan fried with Smoked on top to bring the outside in.
This recipe was made while we were testing a new marinade now known a Uglyade. Since we had the supplies at hand and needed to eat, this fantastic inexpensive steak dinner was created.
Grilled flank steak or blade steak cooked blue which is one step colder than medium rare. We used Dawgs Bark to season this steak but you could use anything. The fries are from frozen “steak cut” covered in queso.
