You had me until you said blue cheese.Tonight I am par cooking a couple of pork chops on the grill to get a little crust and smoke, then I will finish them on the stove in a sauce of roux, garlic, white wine, chicken stock, cream, mushrooms, and a little blue cheese. Will serve with baked sweet potatoes and asparagus.
The Texans are going to be about all those beans.This morning I cooked a Magnalite full of venison chili. I had looked in the freezer the other day and noticed we were out and with this Polar Vortex (freezing rain now), it was a good time to put together another batch... Maybe about 5lbs of meat, massive can of pinto beans, 3 big cans of black beans, 2 big cans of kidney beans and a bunch of chili powder and seasonings. There's only two of us at the house these days and so we'll easily be able to put up 6-8qts for quick meals since both of us work.
Sounds awesome. And for the record, I am also pro beans.Oh, no worries Buzd... this is not your run of the mill chili powder from the grocery store.
A ‘good portion’ of the mix was from a chap out of New Iberia. His mix and recipe, if followed closely, have won many contests.. I use it as a base and tweak from there.
and yeah, Texans do get pretty worked up about beans vs no beans... None of them are eating at my house and so that’s that. Haha.
