Food Porn

10 posts in this topic

I just read a thread somewhere of some who will not post food pics! Well sir re bob. I take food pics all the time. So I will start this off.

And BTW the best recipe I have ever used came from LadyC, the green pork. PLEASE post it again.

The food porn isn't nearly as good without the commentary. Anyway, the last one is the BBQ beef brisket Mark and Christie made while I was down there in Texas. God that was good. It just needed a little Texas Pete LOL! Hey I live in Winston Salem now, and this is where it is made.

I always though Texas Pete was made in Texas! That's a dirty trick. I would have never guessed. I asked Christie for some Texas Pete and she said "What is that?" A quick google search made me feel like a darn fool.

ahhh, the pork chile verde.... yep, sure is good! i don't really use a recipe. i just throw a bunch of stuff in the crockpot! here's the general guideline...

throw in a pork roast. dump in a jar of tomatilla salsa. toss in a couple of chopped up or sliced onions, some chopped up peppers of all sorts (jalapenos, anaheim/hatch, mild green chiles, maybe even some bell pepper... if you want it hot, use more and leave the seeds in. if you want milder, take out the seeds. for the best flavor, roast your peppers before using!) now, add some seasoning salt and let it cook for hours and hours until you can fork-shred the pork.

using a bunch of the juices from all that stuff in the crock-pot, make some rice... how much depends on how much pork you've got. if you used a whole pork loin in a 6 qt crock, you'll want 2-3 cups of cooked rice.

you can spoon the chile verde over your rice if you want, but my favorite way to eat it is to do it burrito style.

you can freeze the leftovers for another meal at another time.

ALTERNATIVE: for the bachelors who don't know how to cook......

put your pork in the crockpot, pour in the salsa verde (tomatilla salsa), add three 7 oz cans of chopped fire-roasted green chiles, 2 cans diced jalapenos, and some pre-diced onions & green peppers that come in a little plastic container in the produce department. when the pork is tender enough to shred with a fork, pour in some instant rice and let it cook another half hour or so til it is tender.

I cooked it one time and LC's brother is still talking about how good it is... years later. tex-mex is the best food in the world. I'm glad I have the recipe again. His wife also loved it, and she hates everything.

remember rudy? he made it once with beef instead of pork, said it was fantastic. i've done it with chicken before, too.... not as crazy about it with chicken. i always overcook chicken in a crockpot and it comes out dry.

Well my house smells like peppers and salsa haha. I just moved into a new place so the cabinets and refrig is empty. So, I was meticulous at the store in picking out the ingredients today. When checking out, Tammy asked me if I knew what I had forgotten. I answered, "What?"

"The pork tenderloin!"

I think instead of rice, I will heat up some black beans and add them to the burritos. More food porn tomorrow. And I have the perfect guy recipe. A pic of all the ingredients lol. Oh yeah, to be clear, get flour tortillas, not corn. I did that once because I'm an idiot.

So, black beans, cheese, guacamole, sour cream, and hot sauce. More food porn to come!

A Man's Recipe

The only way to make them better is to make then bigger. Make sure you pop in some poblano peppers.

But ya can't guess what I'm making! Chili verde is food for the gods. Man they just came out with green pepper Cholula hot sauce. It is hot as fire but it adds a BAM! to everything you put it on. I grew up with a kid who was (1/2) Mexican. All of my friends and I were extremely competitive. We would even see who could eat the hottest foods. We poured hot sauce to everything except iced tea.

To this day, I can't eat without either hot sauce or hot cajun seasoning or both. I'll never forget being at Mark and Christie's house in Dallas asking for a bottle of Texas Pete! They didn't know what I was talking about. That crap is made in Winston Salem! Ha! Still laughing about it. Cholula is 10x better anyway.

Oh girl! You gotta buy a bottle. Get a big bottle, trust me.  It's not a salsa, it is pure fire poured out of a bottle. A few drops and you are good to go.

You know what I love salsa on? A ham and cheese omelette! It's like a shortcut to a Western omelette.
