Chorizo Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

If you have been keeping up with me on Instagram, hopefully last week you got a sneak peak of a mouth watering pork tenderloin. I am going to share how I made it, and the technique you need in order to get the beautiful spiral look. It was my birthday last week, and my mom (who I have seen in over a year) came to visit this weekend. I wanted to cook up something nice for her, and for myself, because a guy should have a big platter of meat for a birthday dinner. This is what I came up with, a chorizo stuffed pork tenderloin. The Ingredients: 4-6 lbs of Boneless Pork Tenderloin 3 sticks of Chorizo Salt and Pepper 2 tbsp of Olive Oil +Cooking String (optional) Balsamic glaze The Technique: 1) Butterflying the tenderloin.

Must Have Monday #3

Another Monday is here, I hope everyone had a good weekend, and your favorite football team won. This coming week is my birthday week, so I figure let's put down the tools, take a break, and enjoy an ice cold brewsky. Last week, LMB and myself went on a little vacation to visit our friends, january jewelry and her husband, in Columbia, SC. They so kindly gave me this awesome birthday gift, the Black and Tan Turtle by Brutul. I cannot believe I lived without this little creature and now I deem it a Must Have! If you are having a Superbowl party, use this tool to throw your guest a fleaflicker to change up the beer options. I am a Michigan native, and I have grown very fond of local micro-brewed beers. Like most who have ventured down this road, there are so many options out there, how do you choose which one you want for your weekend beer? If you enjoy a broad range of beers from dark to light, grab the Black and Tan Turtle and enjoy both in the same glass, while making your beer … [Read more...]

Black Bean Hummus Dip

Okay everyone, it is a New Year, and what does that mean... New diet! With the Superbowl fast approaching and an upcoming party threatening your New Year resolution, I have a great recipe that will have you checking your pantry and making a grocery list. For everyone on the new and improved diet, this black bean hummus dip will not compromise that new diet, so feel free to have seconds without self loathing, keeping you from falling off of the wagon until Valentine's Day. If you are unaware, LMB and myself really enjoy grabbing a good meal around town, and we have a few local go-to spots that have become almost routine. One of our favorite lunch spots offers a free appetizer of black bean hummus dip, with corn tortilla chips. I am not a big hummus guy, but some days I wish they would offer just this dip as a full meal. This inspired me to go out and find a recipe like theirs, because I needed it in my life on the daily. After searching the edge of the internet and back I found a few … [Read more...]
