Cider Brined Pork

Cider Brined Pork

With Cider Sauce

Posted on November 04, 2015
I was going to throw my pork tenderloin into the crock pot and have some Slow Cooked Sake Pork. However my loving husband wrapped the loin straight instead of curled around itself and it wouldn't fit into the crock pot! Needless to say we had something else for dinner that night, but I did come up with a nifty recipe to have the next night! 

Like I mentioned in my Cider Donut recipe, we're obsessed with Angry Orchard Cider right now. So while rifling about in the fridge for something I could do to my tenderloin to make it tastier, my eyes alighted on the Angry Orchard Cider I had. Thus Cider Brined Pork was devised.

Sausage Stuffed Baked Apples

Sausage Stuffed Baked Apples

With Maple Syrup & Cider

Posted on November 03, 2015
I made these Sausage Stuffed Baked Apples after seeing a photo online. That's how it happens sometimes. I just had this image in my head and was all about making these! I started with the most gigantic apples I have ever seen. These Honey Crisp Apples - yes the ones from the Maple Walnut Apple Crisp recipe - were perfect for this. They were ginormous! Massive. Did I mention they were big?  Then I grabbed some sausage. It couldn't be just any sausage though, it had to be the right amounts of sweet and savory, something that would pair prettily with the apple and other sweet flavors. In the end I had these gigantic apple bombs that were aromatic and delectable. A perfect balance. Oh and they're gluten free too.

Maple Peppercorn Bacon

Maple Peppercorn Bacon

The cure for the common bacon

Posted on October 01, 2015
Maple Peppercorn Bacon is spicy, peppery, sweet and bacon. It's the bacon-est bacon that ever baconed and you will love it. Not only because you put so much love and effort into it. (Flipping that bag filled with meat once per day is really difficult you guys!) Okay really the hardest parts were the waiting and then not eating it all as soon as it was off the smoker. The smell is just beyond amazing.

Tahini Marinated Pork Chops

Tahini Marinated Pork Chops

On a bed of rice

Posted on October 01, 2015
I had these amazing thick pork chops and didn't know what to do with them. Apparently we get bored easily in the Sizzle household, because my husband was pretty "meh" about these too. But suddenly, our stomachs growled and said - Tahini Marinated Pork Chops! Okay, that didn't really happen exactly like that, but you get the idea. We suddenly had a craving for something a little bit international.

Grilled Chicken Carbonara

Grilled Chicken Carbonara

With Homemade Bacon

Posted on September 22, 2015
Do you still have bacon ends after making homemade bacon? OR do you have a craving for bacon and don't want to make pancakes or something? Well this classy meal is just for you. Grilled Chicken Carbonara With Homemade Bacon is the perfect way to use up leftover bacon, impress someone, and have a great pasta meal in less than an hour. Grilled Chicken Carbonara was one of those recipes that I hadn't tackled before because I thought it was too easy to screw up, so I was scared. It IS easy to mess this recipe up, but if you do it right, you are rewarded. Also. Bacon.

Bacon Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Bacon Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

On The Grill

Posted on September 22, 2015
When you slice your newly homemade bacon, you invariably get bits, chunks, slices that aren't pretty, and leavings. You can't just toss these little scraps. That would be offensive. You would be arrested by the Bacon Police for crimes against the bacon! That's where these Bacon Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins come in. I used some of the bacon ends in these delicious breakfast muffins that do more than smell delicious. They're fairly healthy, you can make them gluten free and egg free easily. There is little sugar in these too. Until you add the chocolate chips. But if you're REALLY being health conscious with these bacon-full muffins, craisins are a great addition instead.

Homemade Smoky Southwest Bacon

Homemade Smoky Southwest Bacon

How To Make Your Own Bacon

Posted on September 15, 2015
Homemade Smoky Southwest Bacon is da bomb! Okay I say that everything I make is the best thing ever, but this! THIS! This bacon will be, undoubtedly, the bestest, most awesome, heavenliest, amazariffic thing you have ever tasted in your entire life. That is if you're into bacon. So we've done planked bacon, and homemade bacon, but there is so much more you can do with bacon, than bacon. Or just subtly changing bacon into tastier bacon. Does that make sense? If not, just make this recipe. You will understand the nirvana that is bacon when you finish it. 

I must say that waiting the 10 days for it to cure was possibly the hardest thing we have ever done. But when you have homemade bacon and compare it to the stuff you get in stores, there is nothing even close. It's like eating unseasoned, low grade, ground beef and calling it a steak, and then having someone prepare you a filet mignon, done to a perfect medium rare. You're not going to turn back from that.

Pulled Pork Quesadillas

Pulled Pork Quesadillas

With Arugula And Gouda

Posted on September 08, 2015
Pulled Pork Quesadillas With Arugula And Gouda are moderately healthy, and easy to make. Use them for a fast dinner, or as a great lunch for school. Whenever you serve them, you will be in flavor town. Pulled pork quesadillas are another fun and simple way to use that pulled pork you smoked, without just slapping it on a bun. Adding arugula to the mix gives you some dark greens, and adds an extra peppery layer to the flavor, and the gouda a mild and easily melted cheese that gives you a little hit of creaminess with the smokey pork.

How To Make Hot Italian Sausage

How To Make Hot Italian Sausage

Making it yourself is easy and fun!

Posted on September 01, 2015
This recipe is all about How To Make Hot Italian Sausage. Actually wait. I should back up. I have been waiting for nearly a year to finally do this. Make my own sausage. I initially set out to make something a little more mild when it came to a sausage, so the flavor that we ended up with was a lot spicier than intended, but it's ALL flavor, not just heat for heat's sake. I started with research. I wanted to make something actually easy, and needed to source out good ingredients. Then I needed to make sure that I had the spices that would create the flavors we were looking for. And finally we had to just do it. 

I think the biggest thing that holds people up is the casing, and stuffing. Casings are either synthetic or animal based. They don't smell great, and they're really gross. But they're an essential part of the process. I recommend going to your local butcher (The Butcher Shop Barrie is ours) and talking to them about casings, which ones they use and if they have any tips and tricks. You will get a lot of bang for your buck that way too. We got enough to make quadruple of what this recipe makes! Now for the pork. You can use a Boston butt, and add pork fat, or ask about pork trimmings. It's a bag full of random stuff, literally. But it will also give you a lot to work with, which is good, and possibly less expensive than buying a whole pork shoulder for this project.

Pulled Pork

Pulled Pork

Rubbed With Garam Masala And Clove

Posted on August 31, 2015
This day started like any other. With pork. Actually it did. I had bacon for breakfast, but I digress. Our mission this weekend was to make homemade sausages. Our local butcher - The Butcher Shop - suggested that we would need more than just the pork trimmings that we were purchasing for said sausage. So I grabbed a pork butt (actually the shoulder) and thought nothing of it. But as it turned out, we didn't need the extra pork for sausages. So what was I to do? Why Pulled Pork naturally! Pulled Pork Rubbed With Garam Masala And Clove is something that just materialized. I didn't want to do the same old Pulled Pork, what good would that be to you, my fine readers? So I whipped out my spices and looked for some interesting combinations that I could try.
