Here we are at the beginning of February and Mardi Gras is coming up – that’s a great reminder to make a dish with a bit of heat and a bit of spice to ward off the winter blues. A dish like this Cajun Fried Rice with Pulled Pork.
If you’ve ever had burnt ends at a bbq joint (or at home if you can invest the hours and hours), real smoked burnt ends made from brisket, you gotta know there’s not much better! Probably the only thing better would be having more of them and having them more often! That’s where this cheaper knock-off, Poor Man’s Burnt Ends comes in.
Is running out of barbecue sauce an emergency? In my kitchen, it can be! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve opened my fridge looking for barbecue sauce only to realize I’m out! Honestly, I either have too many kinds cluttering up the fridge door or none at all. There doesn’t seem to be an in-between! But one thing I almost always have on hand is ketchup, and it makes a fab base for this Quick Emergency Barbecue Sauce.
I’m gonna share one of my secrets with you guys! (Don’t tell…on second thought, do! Share it everywhere!) It’s this Honey Chipotle Glaze. If you cook (and I’m guessing you do or you wouldn’t be here!) you gotta know how we all have those recipes that people remember and ask about? This simple little sauce (glaze sounds better) is one of those.
Kansas City Barbecue Sauce is my ultimate comfort barbecue sauce. Growing up in the Midwest, that’s just what we used, or should I say what my Dad used. It was always glossy, on the sweet side with just a bit of a kick at the end. And it was always used on his grilled chicken.
