Pork Loin That’s Positively Tasty!

Published by Rilee Waller on March 27th, 2014

 Smokehouse Glenn presented a tasty flavor spin to pork this morning which will have you squealing for more! Today, Glenn took one of his Chairman Reserve pork loin roasts and gave it a flavor infusion. First, Glenn sprinkled the roast with a generous amount of his Ultimate Pork Chop and Roast Rub. Then he drizzled a combination of Ginger & Honey Balsamic vinegar along with Lemon Olive Oil.

The vinegar has a light flavor combining some intense ginger along with a subtle hint of honey – extremely good. The olive oil has a fresh, concentrated infusion of lemon which interacts well with the ginger and honey tastes. A pork lover’s delight!!

Dearborn Ham Gets Balsamized!

Published by Rilee Waller on March 20th, 2014

 Smokehouse Glenn experimented successfully this morning with two flavored balsamic vinegars that he added to Dearborn spiral sliced ham. Glenn experimented with two different flavored balsamic vinegars and came up with two distinct tastes for an already proven product – Dearborn ham!

Jazzed up flavored ham!

Maple flavored and Pineapple flavored vinegars were drizzled over slices of Dearborn ham and warmed in the oven. Simple, flavorful and many tasty applications! Use this ham in a breakfast dish, a hot ham sandwich with mashed potatoes or as a party hor d’orve. You could also combine the maple and pineapple to make a glaze for pork chops, pork steaks or roasts.

The pineapple flavor was the more preferred choice over maple, personally, I’m more accustomed to family recipes that had pineapple rings and cherries on our whole ham than maple. However, I think the maple flavor would work well in a baked bean dish or possibly mixed in your pancake patter!

 

 

Smokehouse Glenn’s Open House went well this past weekend. Glenn featured several dishes also featuring his fruit flavored vinegars as toppings for ice cream. Now that his Test Kitchen is fully functional, the store will feature weekend cooking and sampling of various recipes using his store products. Stop in and taste the variety available from Smokehouse Glenn’s 38 different flavored olive oils and balsamic vinegars. He also carries a variety of flavored sea salts and seasonings from The Salt Works and Salt Sisters.

Oils & Vinegars Add Bold Flavor to Chicken

Published by Rilee Waller on March 13th, 2014

 This morning, Smokehouse Glenn brought in two varieties of his in-store chicken breasts with two different seasoning combinations! First, I sampled chicken breasts that were cooked in a combination of Serrano Honey flavored vinegar, Jalapeno vinegar and Cilantro & roasted Onion flavored olive oil. The other pan of chicken breasts were cooked in a blend of Cilantro & Roasted Onion flavored olive oil and Serrano Honey flavored vinegar! I am still amazed how each of these olive oils and vinegars capture such a distinct, robust flavor of their particular taste. Your favorite recipe will magnify its flavors ten fold with the use of Glenn’s new product line!!! You need to taste these flavors for yourself to appreciate their bold accent they ad to your meal.

For a great tasting breakfast, let’s start with Glenn’s Frisky Frittata recipe. This scrambled egg dish used Glenn’s breakfast sausage sauteed in his Organic Garlic infused olive oil, eggs, salt and pepper, sliced sweet peppers, diced onions and a grated blend of Asiago and Parmesan cheeses. Real easy to make and very tasty! This dish could easily go along with hash browns, toast and fresh brewed coffee!

Thinking about lunch – try this Enchilada dish that is also delicious and easy to make with a few ingredients. Glenn browned one pound each of ground beef and turkey in a skillet with some of his Harissa infused and Cilantro /Roasted Onion infused olive oils. Add to the meat some cooked chopped onion along with ½ t of cumin and 1 ½ T chili powder; along with salt and 16 ozs. of tomato sauce. The pictures show how good theses dishes look but the final proof is in the TASTING – very delicious!
