Here's another classic from the post-war era.
Rich and Bunny Tuttle, K Cass BBQ: Rich and Bunny told us, “We have experimented with grilling all kinds of different pizzas, and this one is extremely delightful and healthy.”
No, you can't use canned or frozen--this recipe only works with fresh asparagus, so take advantage of these spring asparagus months. This is an excellent accompaniment to grilled seafood, too. Note: You can reduce the marinade in a small pan and serve it over the grilled asparagus.
The combination of sharp mustard and rich, mellow pure maple syrup creates a unique flavor for these juicy bone-in pork chops. Be sure not to overcook the chops or they will become tough and chewy. Use an instant-read thermometer for perfectly cooked chops. Note: This recipe requires advance preparation.
This is by far the most unusual barbecue sauce in Latin America. Because
it contains fresh avocados, it must be used immediately and cannot be
stored. Use it to marinate and/or baste grilled or barbecued shrimp,
beef slices, or chicken.
Peaches are the leading deciduous fruit crop grown in Texas and it is estimated that there are more than one million trees planted statewide. Average annual production exceeds one million bushels. Some of the best peaches I’ve ever eaten are grown in the Hill Country outside of Austin and San Antonio. They are so important there that a Hill Country Fruit Council has been established to guide tourists to the best orchards. Here’s how to use them in a wonderful dessert. From the article "Perfectly Pungent Peaches" by Dave DeWitt here.
Central Texas is Hill Country, which produces the habaneros, pecans, and peaches that are used in this recipe. This cooked salsa is an example of the New Southwestern style of cooking, and it would accompany grilled chicken or fish. From the article "Perfectly Pungent Peaches" by Dave DeWitt here.
From one of my far-flung writers, Linda Lynton, this recipe is a basic
sauce from northern India and Nepal. She noted: “Although this specific
recipe was given to me by a Patna housewife, some peasants originating
from a remote Himalayan village in Central Nepal and housewives from an
equally remote village in North Bihar gave us the same recipe.” Use it
as a topping for chicken, fish, or vegetables.
The U.S.A. has become one of the world's largest producers of hot sauces
and the flagship of the hot sauce fleet is Tabasco®, which is exported
all over the world from Avery Island, Louisiana. Because the chiles in
mash form are not aged in oak barrels for three years, this recipe will
be only a rough approximation of the famous McIlhenny product. You will
have to grow your own tabascos or substitute dried ones that have been
rehydrated. Other small, hot, fresh red chiles can also be substituted
for the tabascos. Note: This recipe requires advance preparation.
Pork tenderloin, which has very little fat, can be made more flavorful by marinating and seasoning before cooking. Remember when cooking pork not to overcook the meat. These medallions, marinated with mustard and chile powder, have a sweet-hot taste and light glaze from the honey. Note: This recipe requires advance preparation.
