Southwestern Flavor Hits the Beef!

Published by Rilee Waller on May 28th, 2014

Smokehouse Glenn fires up his grill this morning to give the office a taste of some great Southwestern flavor on grilled cuts of premium beef. Sirloin and Ball tip cuts of beef are very lean and very unforgiving IF you don’t watch them closely on the grill or in the skillet. However, Glenn cooked these right and our taste sampling was out of this world good!

Taking his two beef cut selections, Glenn placed the beef in a vacuum bag along with an ample amount of his Southwestern Marinade; sealed it out and placed it in his frig overnight to get happy. This morning, the beef met with Glenn’s hot grill and was cooked medium and sliced into bite-sized chunks – Mmmm! This marinade is spicy tasting and very good. The label only discloses there are “spices” in this mix – all I know is what my taste buds tell me and this is a great flavored marinade. I sampled the marinade by itself and could taste that this is on sauce that I need in my spice cabinet. Glenn and I both agreed that this marinade would be a great flavoring for beef used in a fajita dish!

Heading into the memorial Day weekend, Smokehouse Glenn is sharing two items that he made with items from his store – very easy and very delicious. Using his Italian sausage and pepperoni, Glenn created a home made pizza with several toppings and home made dough. Glenn’s garlic olive oil covered his dough once it was spread out on the pan. Topping of sauce, mushrooms, green, red & yellow peppers, onions and cheese! Mmmmm! Delicious flavors all throughout this pizza with just the right amount of topping that I like – many!!Smokehouse Glenn's Pan Pizza

For a quick side dish, Glenn made some home made cole slaw flavoring it with three of his balsamic vinegars from his store. The base ingredients of shredded green cabbage, carrots, red cabbage, Glenn used his Strawberry and Serrano Honey vinegars and Chipotle olive oil to make his dressing.
