Hi guys! I try not to post more than once a day, but today I wanted to hook you up with one of the dishes I make from the marvelous Sweet & Sour Country Style Ribs I put out earlier. This is a beautiful thing. The flavor is intense, the sauce lovely and silky, and while I make Pork & Mushroom Ragu when I have a little of the Sweet & Sour Country Ribs leftover, I also have this in mind when I have any leftover Pulled Pork, too. And I imagine this would be a great way to work over any leftover pork chops, especially if they’re on the drier side and you’re stumped on how to make them taste great on a second go round.
So often one thing leads to another, and so it was when I made Shrimp & Grits with a Cajun Gastrique not too long ago! My sister came to visit shortly after and while she missed the Shrimp and Grits, she proposed we make New Orleans Grillades & Grits. It was a good call and we were off on yet another New Orleans inspired adventure!
So it might seem that I’m on a bit of a grits kick. I made Simple Easy Cheesy Grits recently to go with my Shrimp & Grits with a Cajun Gastrique. And today I’m posting another Cheesy Grits recipe to go with Grillades & Grits, my sister and I recently made. It’s not that you just can’t have too many grits recipes (but maybe you can’t!) but that both of these grits recipes are really good, and they both have advantages.
Awhile back, I shared my Shrimp & Grits with a Cajun Gastrique. Well, that’s quite a version of Shrimp and Grits. Let’s just say it’s not yo Mama’s Shrimp and Grits and it’s divine! And it takes just a bit more time with a few more steps than the average recipe – which is all so worth it. But that’s the kind of recipe you want to concentrate on and keep the grits part simple. So simple, but still delicious, is this recipe for Simple Instant Cheesy Grits.
