Roadhouse Butter

Roadhouse Butter

If you’re Texan it’s a replacement to chips and salsa we use to judge TexMex joints. Texas Roadhouse cinnamon butter seems to have less sugar than one may want, it’s a tease of what’s to come. Even this recipe may have a frogs hair too much cinnamon but it’s still hella good!

TexMex Fish Tacos (crispy)

TexMex Fish Tacos (crispy)

Crispy fish tacos enhance the delicious delicate flavors from the fish. Soft corn tortillas tastes like raw grits. I never say “I’ll have what she’s having” if she’s ordered the fish tacos…

Fire Grilled Blade Steak and Corn Mayhem

Fire Grilled Blade Steak and Corn Mayhem

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.

Steak Diablo

Steak Diablo

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 Butter Beans

Texas Butter Beans

Excellent Texas butter beans recipe I’m sure you’ll love. There’s no Texas magical ingredient making a butter bean a “Texas butter bean”. Dry bean recipes in Texas kind of lay along the lines of gumbo meaning use whatcha got. Ever heard “everything is bigger in Texas”?

Smoked Pork Shoulder, That’s a Wrap

Smoked Pork Shoulder, That’s a Wrap

Won’t know until the party but a piece fell off mid stroke and I bout had one. I usually only inject birds and likely added an amendment to pork shoulder as a Texas Butter state law.

Texas Butter’s Turkeygasim

Texas Butter’s Turkeygasim

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.

Grilled Chicken and Andouille Jambalaya

Grilled Chicken and Andouille Jambalaya

Super good Jambalaya packed with trinity mainly onion, its flavor is awesome in here. I sliced the andouille long ways into 4 strips then cut cross ways matter fact, did the same to the celery. Cut them how you want I’m not gonna be there. I grilled the chicken tenders which gave a nice

Diet Free Chicken Salad

Diet Free Chicken Salad

Mentioned using boiled eggs in her chicken salad. Wut, I don’t know bout boiled egg in chicken salad… I was watching Yan Can Cook when I was around 10 years old and he said never mix eggs with

Shrimp-n-Grits Nicker Dropper

Shrimp-n-Grits Nicker Dropper

Another way to make some shrimp and grits different from the other one I did. Don’t remember how I did them but they were awesome. Well, these may be awesomer. They are awesomer in prep work that’s for sure.

Grilled Chicken Tetrazzini

Grilled Chicken Tetrazzini

Not going to call the rest of this recipe Chicken Tetrazzini because I already know I’ll be spell check’n tetrazzini throughout… This is a fantastic twist on Yard Bird Sketti I knew would be a IMO 4 but when tasted it

Bacon Sleeping Bag For a Chicken

Bacon Sleeping Bag For a Chicken

This sucker came out really good and not too much labor. I’ll explain the ham a better way below on how I should have cut it. Don’t know why I did it like that, thought I had rolling down since High School.

Shrimp n Scallop Bacon Infused Lasagna

Shrimp n Scallop Bacon Infused Lasagna

Maybe I could have started before starving, who knows. It’s been in 2 more feedings since then and all I can say is Yaaas!!! More on the dadgum noodles down the line.

Gumbo Mojo Hojo

Gumbo Mojo Hojo

A couple three things to get right with gumbo is your roux, okra prep (if using), and my Aunt says you can never have too many onions. I agree and will jabber down the page.

Pigtail Pasta Shrimped

Pigtail Pasta Shrimped

Sort of a kitchen sink dinner it turned out better than expected. It’s a cross of Alfredo sauce and regular ole garlic butter sauce, but you won’t have much sauce at all when done. Small pot, large pan, and a plate yer good to go.

Fish Tacos Southern Mango Boom

Fish Tacos Southern Mango Boom

Mango’s are already tasty around here and pretty easy to pick out the goods ones. Not much frying around here because of cleanup but when it happens it’s usually done with a tempura style batter tweaked with our typical twist.

Flat Iron Meat Roses

Flat Iron Meat Roses

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…

Gulf-n-Grass Pina Colada Sticks

Gulf-n-Grass Pina Colada Sticks

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..

Shrimp By The Three Cheesed Pasta Shells

Shrimp By The Three Cheesed Pasta Shells

You could totally skip the shrimp part on this one if you were going to an office “bring a dish” party and you don’t like your boss. If you’re looking for a promotion add the shrimp… Better yet

Shrimp and Grits Casserole

Shrimp and Grits Casserole

In fact this was my 1st. They are pretty quick, easy, and cheap to build. Not sure what’s in true southern shrimp n grits but this one has cheddar, shrimp, garlic, green onion, and bacon. Wish I had made more.

Lobster and Shrimp Baguette Caps

Lobster and Shrimp Baguette Caps

Whatever reason my crab dealer doesn’t have pealed crab in stock. Suspect it’s a seasonal thing but looking around their stash I noticed “lobster head” meat. It was pretty cheap at about 6 bucks + for approximately 2 cups.

Brisket Sausage Sandwich

Brisket Sausage Sandwich

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.

Rusty Pulled Pork on Texas Toast

Rusty Pulled Pork on Texas Toast

Pulled pork sandwich made with our seasoning Biddy and soaked in RUST. Topped with a simple blue cheese dressing and fries on the side. We make this dish a lot and use the Texas Toast found in the freezer section at the grocery.
