Been playing around with smoking pork (mostly ribs) different ways for testing product and to beat on chest, at home, alone… My chest hurts. This is a loooong smoke on my DIY electric smoker because it’s so nerded out
Made some enchiladas the other night that had great flavor but could use an extra tweak. Sometimes I do get tired of sauce and this was the night I was refusing it.
Anyways, I went to visit him in Austin and he made a pico I thought was way too Cali. “Mango’s in pico, get the hell outa here”. One taste shut me up.. This is a recipe rob of what I remember from that life changing day.
A little mix n match taco feast that’s quick when ya need it. These were made with high dollar all natural drug free hallelujah chicken breast. I don’t usually buy this type of bird but this time I caught it on sale.
Easy to knock out and depending on the head count of your herd, plenty leftover to freeze or make some sandwiches. Personally I like Prego gravy in a pinch but whatever you dig go with that one.
Yup, quick anytime homemade stuffed steak crescents. Always pinching the dough ends tightly to make sure nothing got out, but it always did. I went on the wild side with these and just rolled the damn things.
This is a wetter salad and doesn’t contain mustard. It’s great, easy, and ranks high, may be my new normal. The ribs are leftovers, I’ll point you to their recipe.
Smoking meat for Memorial Day I couldn’t help knocking out a couple 5 ribs. The fried oysters took more prep time but well worth the effort.
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.
This an old school thing easy to build and somewhat cheap depending on stuff you might want to add. I almost never make this the same as the last but the frame remains the same. lol whatevs…
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.
These jumbo grill Gulf Coast shrimp turned out mighty fine and very simple to cook. If you can’t find head on shrimp or gulf shrimp it’s fine to use what’s available. Honestly it’s a cleaner eating experience removing heads and tails when shelling.
These taco dogs were fantastic and similar to some dogs made a few weeks ago. Didn’t use our suggested amount of Taco Dust which confirmed the minimum amount suggested for one pound of beef is ¼ cup. Either way it’s gonna be messy cause queso ain’t containable.
This is pretty similar to the last Chicken Enchiladas recipe on here with a couple hop-ups and speed in mind. Instead of making the verde sauce I bought mine. Verde sauce is really done one way unless you are on a quest to make
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.
This is a less complex lasagna `that’s a little pricey but makes a lot. This is one of my 1st recipes when I moved outa Mama’s house and had, had enough of fast food. I’m trying to write this after eating that. Simple burn out below from my barely legible notes below.
I do ribs all kinds of ways via homemade electric smoker, charcoal grill slow smoke, a true smoker, and the oven. Mostly I only do “low-n-slow”, there are several techniques to smoking but in the long run low-n-slow is baking. Anyways, I’m rambling.
Although the other sliders were great they are different. These made things tickle and for the record I wouldn’t call these sliders. They are more like mini burgers for adults or, whatevs… call’em whatever you want 😉
It’s an older recipe I wanted to keep because the verde sauce made me feel like a sinner. The fam and I were just talking about chicken tenders quality. The premo chicken isn’t that much more expensive and again there are less rubber bands
I dig the flat bottom tacos because I never have to buy or clean a taco stand. It was St. Patty’s day and I noticed a display of glorious green corn tortillas ripe for the pickin. The insides of these tacos aren’t all that pretty but pretty dang good especially with the weak queso drizzled over the meat.
Nice white sauce a little different from parmigiano typically used in Alfredo sauces. Used Oaxaca cheese, browned garlic, and shrimp pieces as a part of it. I usually never veer from parm but did this time and it worked out great.
These nachos beat any drive through and the big plus was they weren’t soggy from a drive home. For the meat and cheese part I made sort of a thick queso that was mixed 1 TexMex taco meat and .50 Velveeta cheese. It played a big part in my h*ll yeah moment. It’s been extra busy
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.
I saw a Subway commercial and in my quest to not frequent fast food I created this typical meatball sub. It was also a good time for me to test Uglyade in the weird spots I like a vinegary twang. The meatballs are a little different than what my Grandmother made but pretty good and a nice twist
Losing time, short on supplies, and not interested in going to the grocery was the inspiration for this simple taco dinner. Just grilled fajitas, homemade tortillas, cheese and a shot of Irish Salsa. Irish Salsa is our problem child
The problem is when you get it home it doesn’t look like the picture. In my never ending quest to not have to close my eyes when I eat, this taco tize monstrosity happened.
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.
Taco salads you see out in the wild aren’t taco salad to me probably because my way is not what’s normal.. This salad is very easy to make and open for more ingredients you’d like to add.
These tacos had a very fresh taste with simple ingredients and very easy to make. This was done in the early days of Uglyade as I was beginning to realize Uglyade is not only a marinade but a great salad dressing too.
