Fan Girl BBQ Night

June 13-15, Porkapalooza came to Edmonton! I wish I could have gone. If I went I would have fan-girled so hard because Diva Q was there judging the competition and that woman knows her barbecue!

With this in mind we had an epic dinner of ribs!

Let me introduce you to our dinner: Pork side ribs braised in red wine, garlic, carrots, ketchup, hickory barbecue sauce, random dry spices baked for 4 hours at 275 degrees. Underneath the ribs is a sauté’ of tomatoes, cherries, green & yellow beans and acorn squash. Even though squash is not yet in season here in Alberta, we froze some off from last year. We’ve come to appreciate having a little bit of Summer/Fall food in our dishes throughout the year. Especially in the winter.

As a finishing touch we added cashews in with the vegetables and an apple vinegar which adds a great tart element to the dish. Microgreens and parsley add a splash of green.

Stay classy,

Duck Dynasty ain't got nothin' on this!

Hello duck breast!

Cooked breast side down on medium heat in a nice glob of duck fat. Mike said scoring it first helps with the cooking process. Accompanying this fine piece of meat are herb marinated grilled vegetables (purple & green cauliflower, corn, potatoes). Everything on the plate is home grown goodness. Thanks to my grandparents for the plethora of potatoes we now have to cook with!
