This morning, Glenn brought in a premium cut of sirloin steak that was marinaded in a blended combination of three oils – Cilantro & Roasted Onion, Jalapeno and Oregano flavored olive oils. Glenn initially said that he thought he want a little overboard with the flavoring but I didn’t think so. The beef captured all of the three oils’ flavors; most prominent were the cilantro, mild heat from the jalapeno and oregano. I make it a point to taste the oils individually before sampling Glenn’s final item and everyone of his olive oils are saturated with the distinct flavor each oil is infused with. Glenn is carrying a top grade of olive oil that will enhance every recipe they are use in. My favorite is the Harissa flavored oil!

Pork Chops and Home-Made Slaw Hit the Spot!

Published by Rilee Waller on February 19th, 2014

Smokehouse Glenn continues to demonstrate the numerous cooking condiments he stocks in his store that provide his customers with unending recipe variations.

Today, Glenn made a marinade for the boneless pork chops he cooked this morning. The marinade recipe consisted of Red Apple Balsamic Vinegar, Chipotle Olive Oil, Sea Salt and sugar. The boneless pork chops were marinaded overnight in the marinade mixture then simply pan fried. The marinade almost turned into a glaze that coated the pork with a deliciously sweet flavor; having an ever so slight twang from the chipotle olive oil.

The home-made cole slaw was flavored with a dressing mixture consisting of Cilantro & Roasted Onion Olive Oil, Serrano Honey Specialty Vinegar, sugar, Sea Salt and mayo. I have never tasted a better flavored slaw dressing; don’t be fooled by the Serrano in the vinegar! The honey made a great off-set to the pepper flavoring and the taste was sensationally sweet! This is a great change from the routine flavoring the conventional recipe tastes like!

Turkey Jerky With All The Flavor You Want!

Published by Rilee Waller on February 12th, 2014

 Smokehouse Glenn brought in three flavors of his own home made Turkey Jerky; Teriyaki, BBQ and Cajun. There are definite flavor differences between each of these choices. Teriyaki has a sweet flavor to it; BBQ has a gentle smoky flavor to it and Cajun will definitely have your taste buds perked up with a spicy zing!

Whether making jerky from beef or turkey, the process is basically the same. When making his turkey jerky, Glenn will use turkey tenders. Turkey renders less of a chew quality to the jerky as does the beef jerky that has more chew factor; ladies usually appreciate less of the chew factor coming from turkey jerky.
