Sautéed Shrimp with Mango Salsa and Coconut Cauliflower Rice
Shrimp and rice gets a tropical makeover in this healthy 400-calorie dinner. Instead of rice, we’ve combined riced cauliflower and coconut milk for light coconut rice topped with spicy shrimp and a juicy mango-avocado salsa to cool it all down. Squeeze on some fresh lime juice before digging in to take this easy meal to the next level………

Cuban Cauliflower Rice Bowl
In this riff on a healthy grain bowl recipe we use cauliflower rice instead of another whole grain like brown rice to cut back on carbs and load up on veggie servings. A simple citrusy mojo sauce drizzled on top gives this easy lunch or dinner a Cuban flair…..

Caldo Tlalpeño (Mexican Chicken Soup)
Chipotle-laced broth and thick chunks of corn on the cob are featured in this healthy, smoky chicken soup recipe. The secret to the great flavor is cooking the vegetables in the broth that’s made from cooking the chicken. Serve the soup with warm corn tortillas………

Did you know that Raisins………..

Raisins pack more nutrition than their small size might indicate. When grapes are dehydrated to produce raisins, the nutrients become more concentrated, making a handful of raisins a snack rich in B vitamins, iron and potassium. Besides nutrients, raisins are also a good source of carbohydrates for energy.

One of America’s Favorites – Memphis-Style Barbecue

December 11, 2017 at 6:47 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment

Dry ribs slow cooking in a pit at Leonard’s BBQ

Memphis-style barbecue is one of the four predominant regional styles of barbecue in the United States, the other three being Carolina, Kansas City, and Texas. Like many southern varieties of barbecue, Memphis-style barbecue is mostly made using pork, usually ribs and shoulders, though many restaurants will still serve beef and chicken. Memphis-style barbecue is slow cooked in a pit and ribs can be prepared either “dry” or “wet”. “Dry” ribs are covered with a dry rub consisting of salt and various spices before cooking and are normally eaten without sauce. “Wet” ribs are brushed with sauce before, during, and after cooking.

Memphis-style barbecue has become well-known due to the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest held each May, which has been listed in Guinness World Records as the largest pork barbecue contest in the world. The event is regularly covered by national and international television networks such as The Food Network and the BBC and attracts over 100,000 visitors. Many of Memphis’ barbecue restaurants have become nationally known and can ship their products anywhere in the country overnight due to the proximity of FedEx’s Memphis Superhub.

 

Pulled pork nachos

After World War II, barbecue became a viable commercial venture in Memphis. Small restaurants, known as “joints”, began to open with a purpose-built pit for slow-cooking the meat. Many small neighborhood joints in low-income areas, such as Payne’s, Leonard’s and Interstate, have gained notoriety as they reflect the roots of Memphis barbecue. Many regional chains have also developed from Memphis, including Tops, Neely’s, and Corky’s. As Memphis-style barbecue became more popular across the country, restaurants such as Corky’s and Rendezvous began shipping orders overnight to customers.

 

 

Pork sandwiches at Payne’sBBQ, BBQ Sauce, Pork, Ribs, Notable establishments

Jim Neely’s Interstate Bar-B-Que
Interstate Bar-B-Que was founded in 1978 by Jim Neely in a rundown grocery store in the low-income neighborhood of South Memphis. Though never a restaurateur, Neely learned how to slow cook ribs in a pit and created a secret sauce based on various local family recipes. Interstate rose to prominence as one of the premier barbecue restaurants in the city, and was featured nationally on The Food Network and The Travel Channel. Neely’s brother and sister-in-law operate another location in Gardena, California. Interstate has been voted the #2 barbecue restaurant in America by People Magazine.

Neely’s
Jim Neely’s four nephews, brothers Gaelin, Tony, Mark and Patrick, founded Neely’s BBQ in Downtown Memphis in 1988, though it operates as a separate business from the other Neely’s and does not carry the Interstate name. In 2008, Pat Neely and his wife Gina debuted a cooking show on The Food Network called Down Home with the Neelys, which is a top ratings performer on the network. The couple has also released a cookbook eponymous with their first show. In 2012, the Neelys announced that they were permanently closing their Memphis-area restaurants.

Charlie Vergos’ Rendezvous
Rendezvous was founded by Charlie Vergos in 1948 in a back alley of Downtown Memphis. Originally the basement of his diner, Vergos discovered a coal chute and turned it into a barbecue pit. Eventually, Vergos converted his diner to a barbecue restaurant and moved the entrance from the street to the alley. Rendezvous is one of the older and more storied barbecue joints in Memphis due to its more than sixty years of operation and “hole-in-the-wall” atmosphere. The Memphis City Council voted to name the alley where Rendezvous is located “Charlie Vergos’ Rendezvous Alley”, though the address remains 52 South 2nd Street. One of Rendezvous’ signature dishes is a barbecue shrimp skillet which must be ordered a full day in advance.

Central BBQ

Central BBQ was founded in 2002 by partners Roger Sapp and Craig Blondis. Central BBQ has three locations in Memphis, with the most recent having opened in Downtown Memphis in 2012. Central BBQ also has a food truck that caters to local events. Though a newcomer to Memphis’ barbecue scene, Central BBQ has placed in the top 3 for barbecue categories in the Memphis Flyer’s annual “Best Of Memphis” contest, as voted for by Memphis residents, every year since its inception. In 2011, Central placed 1st for “Best Barbecue”, 2nd for “Best Ribs”, and 3rd for “Best Hot Wings.”

Germantown Commissary
Germantown Commissary was a traditional country store for decades until 1981, when a new owner bought it and turned it into a barbecue restaurant. Noted for pork ribs and shoulders, Germantown Commissary has a broader menu as well. It was featured on “Food Paradise” that airs on the Travel Channel.

Why I prefer Buffalo over Beef……….

There are many health benefits of eating buffalo. Rich in flavor, low in fat and high in protein, buffalo meat is an ideal substitute for beef in your favorite recipes. Bison meat is lower in calories and cholesterol than beef, pork, turkey, skinless chicken and even some fish!

Meanwhile back at the SayersBrook Bison Ranch – Elk Sirloin Roast

This week from the SayersBrook Bison Ranch website its a Elk Sirloin Roast. Healthy and Lean Elk Meat! If you’ve never tried Elk you are in for a treat. I’ve had several of the Elk Burgers, and its one of the best Burgers I’ve ever had! Elk is just one of items that you can purchase at the SayersBrook site. You can purchase items like; Bison, Ostrich, Wild Boar, Heat n’ Eat, Hams and more! Purchase one of the Roasts in time for Christmas! Enjoy and Eat Healthy! http://www.sayersbrook.com/

Elk Sirloin tip roast. Approximately 4 lbs.

If you’ve had a successful hunt and your freezer is stuffed full with a few hundred pounds of steaks, roasts, and ground elk. you’re in luck, Congratulations! But for those of us who haven’t gone hunting we can still enjoy the taste of this healthy, lean meat. Sayersbrook has elk meat with NO hormones, NO antibiotics, NO steroids or any other chemicals added. Just all natural, delicious cuts of lean elk meat.

How to cook an elk roast:

Use a marinade and place all ingredients in a ziplock bag with the roast and marinate for a couple of hours or over night. Remove roast from refrigerator one hour before serving to bring meat to room temperature for more even cooking.

You can use a Marinade (below):

½ cup olive oil
Juice of one lemon
¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
¼ cup Teriyaki sauce
2 T. Worcestershire sauce
2 t. fresh or crushed garlic
Lemon pepper
Salt to taste

Preheat oven to 325°, place roast in pan and place on upper oven rack. Cook for 25 minutes per lb for medium or approximately 50 to 60 minutes. Elk should be cooked to no more than 130-140 degrees Fahrenheit of internal temperature. At 150 degrees the meat starts to dry out because of its lack of fat. The use of a meat thermometer is the best way to determine when the meat has reached the desired degree of doneness.

An elk roast is fine without a marinade as well, just sprinkle with salt and pepper and some garlic and put in the oven.
