Today’s Menu: Baked Pork Chop w/ Green Beans & Carrots and Harvest Grain Bread

Had another of the large Center Cut Pork Loin Chop. I marinated it in J B’s Fat Boy’s Haugwash Barbcue Sauce and refrigerated it for 3 hours. I removed the chop from the fridge and shook off any excess of the sauce and then seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Black Peppercorn and then applied a light rub of McCormick Grillmate’s Applewood Rub. I then pan fried the Chop browning it on both sides then baked the Chops at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and then flipping the Chops over and baking another 35 minutes until the temperature read 165 degrees. I love these Big Chops moist and tender with some great leftovers!

For sides I had Kroger Bakery Harvest Grain Bread and a new item that I hadn’t tried Pero Family Farms Green Beans & Carrots. I hadn’t had the Harvest Grain Loaf Bread in a while so it was good to have some again. The Green Beans & Carrots was something I picked up earlier in the week at Meijer. Easy to fix, microwave in the bag or boil in 3 cups of water for 7 minutes which is what I did. They came out crisp and delicious, I’ll have to buy some more of these! For dessert later a slice of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread with a scoop of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.

Cooking Bison

There is no such thing as tough Bison Meat, only improperly instructed cooks. Although buffalo meat is similar to beef, it needs to be prepared and cooked slightly differently. you will find that you can interchange Bison meat with your favorite beef recipes if you follow a few basic instructions. The key to cooking Bison properly is LOW & SLOW! You may cook to the same doneness as you prefer beef, though we recommend rare to medium. Overcooked bison will bring the same results as any other meat, that is overcooked! Choose any of your favorite recipes and substitute the meat with Bison. You will be serving a meat high in protein and iron, yet low in fat, cholesterol and calories.

A nutritional chart comparing bison meat to other common meats.
Meat     Fat Grams     Calories     Cholesterol
Bison     2.42     143     82
Chicken     7.41     190     89
Beef     9.3     211     86
Pork     10.5     215     92

Tips on Cooking Bison
Thickness     Rare     Medium
1 inch     6-8 minutes     8-10 minutes
1 1/2 inch     8-10 minutes     10-12 minutes
2 inch     10-12 minutes     14-18 minutes

Don’t put Bison meat in the Flame! Grill steaks 4-6 inches above medium hot coals (325 degrees). Well done bison steaks are not recommended. Due to the leanness of the meat, bison has a tendency to become dry when overcooked. If grilling a piece of meat that needs a long time to cook, keep the temperature low and use a recipe that includes a marinade, barbeque sauce, or other basting liquid and baste frequently.

Roasts
The best oven temperature is at 275 F. Preheat your oven. To insure the most desirable results, use a meat thermometer. In general, you can plan on the roast taking the same amount of time or less than beef would at higher tempreture. Bison, with no fat, cooks more quickly, so check on it. Bison cuts suitable for roasts are rib steaks and roasts, tenderloin, and sirloin roasts.

Crock Pot Cooking
Very slow, moist heat works especially well with the less tender cuts of meat such as the chuck. The best way is to use a crock pot or a slow cooker. Let it cook all day. With the moist, slow cook method, you don’t have to worry about over cooking. You can cook it until it falls apart. Use the low setting on your crock pot. The foreshank, brisket, and stew meat are also well suited to this cooking method.

Pan Fry, Pan Broil, or Braise
First, turn the heat down! You can use a standard beef recipe but watch the temperature. If you use high heat with bison, use it only for a very, very short time such as searing, then watch the cooking time. Bison cooks much faster than beef.

Broiling
Move your broiler rack farther away from the heat than you would for beef, about two to five inches. Broil as you would beef but shorten the cooking time. Turn the steaks a few minutes sooner. Rib steaks, tenderloin, and T-bone steaks are scrumptious this way.

Grilling
If you have a grill that tells temperature, keep it down! Or let the coals die down some. Don’t put lean bison meat in the flame. If you are using a piece of meat that needs a long time to cook, keep the temperature low and use a recipe that includes a marinade, barbecue sauce, or other basting liquid. Lean meat is dry to begin with. You need to baste frequently.

Stir Fry
Stir fry is an excellent method for cooking bison. Cut the meat into small strips or cubes. Be sure to use just a drop of olive oil or a polyunsaturated oil just to coat the pan. Remember, bison cooks quickly, so be sure to have your stir fry vegetables ready to toss in the wok. Heat the oil only enough to sear the meat, tossing it quickly around, then add your other ingredients. Proceed as the recipe follows, but keep the heat down. The short cooking times makes stir fry an even more excellent meal option.

Veal and Brown Mushroom Gravy w/ Mashed Potatoes and…

Today’s Menu: Veal and Brown Mushroom Gravy w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Asparagus


I’m going to have start having this Veal more often, it’s fantastic! I’ve been buying the Private Selection Cubed Veal Steak from Kroger. It’s the most tender and delicious Veal I’ve ever come across. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn and then lightly coated it with Italian Style Bread Crumbs. I pan fried the Cube Steak in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 3 minutes per side and it came out perfect!

To top the Veal I made some Mushroom Brown Gravy. Thanks to the inspiration from another blogger, Please Pass The Tofu who always has a very good blog that’s full of ideas and recipes! For the Gravy I used Pioneer Brown Gravy. I sliced some Portabella Mushrooms and lightly sauteed them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. After making the Gravy I added the sauteed Mushrooms along with 2 tablespoons of Breakstone Reduced fat Sour Cream and mixed well. I used the Gravy to top the Veal and also my side of Mashed Potatoes. Homemade Mashed Potatoes are great but Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes are just as good and whole lot easier! Microwave them for 3 minutes remove them from the microwave give them a good stir and microwave them again for another 3 minutes and you have your Mashed Potatoes. As my other side I had fresh Asparagus that I cut into 3 pieces and seasoned with Garlic Salt and Black Pepper and then lightly fried in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. No clue on a dessert tonight.
